Mariah Carey Nails NYE Do-Over, But Really Wanted Some Hot Tea!

Mariah Carey Nails NYE Do-Over, But Really Wanted Some Hot Tea!

Later, in response to her hot tea "disaster", Carey tweeted "Found my tea!"

Mariah Carey performs during Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve at Times Square on December 31, 2017 in New York City.

At Sunday evening's event, after she had finished performing her first song, Carey noticed that there was no tea on hand to warm her up in the tundra-esque NY climate. On top of that, only a true diva would withstand below freezing temperatures just to rock a hot, sparkly outfit.

Never mind that Mariah Carey never was and never will be like everybody else, but she made it through her second song without the tea.

But don't worry: Mariah Carey got her tea after all.




"Oh, I'm feeling a lot better than a year ago, when I had to get my own police escort to walk away", Carey said, after Seacrest asked how she was feeling.

She and Dick Clark Productions couldn't agree as to who was at fault for the technical difficulties, however both parties put it all in the past for the latest bash.

Carey first hit the Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve stage with a rendition of "Vision of Love", and things appeared to be going smoothly. After Hero finished, the camera went back to Seacrest.

Ryan Seacrest said he's happy that Mariah Carey is set to return for tonight's New Year's Eve celebration one year after the singer's botched performance. "Let's get some poses in while we wait", she tells the main stage crowd with a half-shivering smile.

The awkwardness increased exponentially from there, as Carey stood onstage without singing, throwing slight asides to the audience like, "We didn't have a sound check but it's New Year's, baby, that's OK, you guys", and "I'm trying to be a good sport here".
