Mariah Carey Slays on NYE, Warms Up with Some Hot Tea

"All I can say is Dick Clark was an incredible person and I was lucky enough to work with him when I first started in the music business", she told Entertainment Weekly a year ago.

Last year, the pop icon made headlines for all the wrong reasons after a botched performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest, when technical difficulties led the diva to exit the stage in frustration and disgust.

"They told me there would be tea", she said.

"One wrote: "'they told me i'd have hot tea' famous last words of 2017- Mariah Carey ".

Fortunately, Mariah did end up getting her piping hot cup of tea ... and none was spilled. "Well we're just going to have to rough it". I'm going to be just like everybody else with no hot tea.

"Found my tea! ☕", Mariah posted on Instagram at 2:40am ET!

Last year's show ended in disaster when the track for her 1991 hit Emotions malfunctioned during her performance.

Within seconds, instead of singing the song, she ordered her dancers to "just walk me down", referring to steps on the stage. "We didn't have a sound check for this New Year's baby, it is what it is.Get these monitors on please", she said. And though non-believers waited attentively to see if she'd wreak havoc once again, ABC reports Carey did just fine, performing glitch-free versions of "Vision of Love" and "Hero".

Then, at around 20 to midnight, she stormed off stage. Looks like the year's officially off to a good start. "Temperatures in New York City hit record lows, hovering around 8 degrees Fahrenheit, which felt like minus 6 degrees Fahrenheit when factoring in windchill".
