Mariah Carey Redeemed Herself on New Year's Rockin' Eve

Mariah Carey Redeemed Herself on New Year's Rockin' Eve

Mariah Carey made headlines last year with her New Year's Rockin' Eve performance in New York's Times Square - and not for a good reason.

As she prepared to launch into a rendition of her signature ballad, "Hero", Mariah added: "Okay well we'll just have to ― I'm just going to be like everybody else with no hot tea". The Internet quickly erupted with "hot tea" memes, GIFs, video clips and comments. "They told me there would be tea. Ugh". "Found my tea!" she captioned an Instagram photo of herself sipping from a delicate teacup while seemingly staying warm in the fuzzy white coat she wore for her Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve performance in Times Square.

And it's safe to say she succeeded.

But superstar Mariah Carey has proven she's a showbiz trouper by ringing in 2018 in spectacular style.

After all, the five-time Grammy-Award victor was singing live in near record-breaking weather.

Mariah still sounded great and was definitely singing live throughout the performance, despite it feeling like below zero degrees with the wind chill in New York City.

Despite the cold, Mariah Carey's performance was well received. "Let's get some poses in while we wait", she tells the main stage crowd with a half-shivering smile.

Her fans rushed to Twitter to congratulate her on her performance and also poke fun at her "hot tea" moment.

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.

It seems that everything Mariah Carey does will go viral and set a new trend.
