Twitter goes insane after Mariah Carey demands 'hot tea' mid performance

Twitter goes insane after Mariah Carey demands 'hot tea' mid performance

In a freaky discussion before she started, Mariah lamented the fact that there was no hot tea for her drink on stage.

Extremely pleased with Mariah's performance, a slew of Twitter users congratulated the songstress for a job well done. "I just wanna take a sip of tea, if you'll let me". OK, well, we'll just have to rough it.

Carey's performance past year was an abject, Murphy's Law-level disaster.

After her universally-panned New Year's Eve performance last year, all eyes were on Mariah Carey as she took to the stage in 2018.

While her vocals may not be as effortless as they once were, and the cold weather no doubt put a strain on her voice, we think she put on a fabulous show.

"The Diva gets what the Diva wants!" one person wrote while another said: "Who dared to forget your tea ☕️?" Seacrest asked Carey how she felt.

Which isn't to say the weather escaped her notice.

Wearing a sparkly nude dress and white fur-like coat, the 47-year-old sang "perfectly acceptable" renditions of "Vision of Love" and "Hero" in Times Square, yet it was what she said between the songs that stole most of the attention, per the Los Angeles Times. "Loved your humility when they didn't have your hot tea - You Proved that GOD IS STILL "A GOD OF 2ND CHANCES"!"

Despite not having her much needed hot tea before the performance, Mariah gave a stellar show.

This time, in contrast, she was offering technique alone, which left too little space for the freewheeling attitude that truly distinguishes her.

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

One thing that wasn't missing: Carey's boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka.
