Cannon said,

“You know me, I’m a conspiracy theorist. I think the government did that. They set her up. That was a distraction. They just put her out there.”

He then laughed then joke off and showed nothing but support for his ex-wife. He said,

“I mean, anyone who knows about performing and having in-ears and stuff, things like that can go wrong on live television. I do live television all the time. I screw up on America’s Got Talent all the time. When there’s people in your ears, saying things and stuff, I think she kinda got a little flustered.”

Dick Clark Productions has been going back and forth with Mariah’s people saying they had nothing to do with the technical difficulties that night. Carey herself spoke on the incident saying,

“I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time,”
