All Mariah Carey Wanted For New Years Eve Was Some Tea

Mariah Carey's 2017 New Year's Rockin' Eve performance

Lumping herself with the rest of the masses huddled together for warmth on the frigid December night, Carey soldiered on like the thousands of non-millionaires in her presence and closed out 2017 in style.

On Sunday, Mariah Carey returned to the stage at New Year's Rockin' Eve 2018, and her performance was moving.

But there was still time for some of those faux-diva antics that we've all come to love from Mariah. "Oh, it's a disaster". OK, well, we'll just have to rough it.

The mother of two later got in on the action by posting a picture on Instagram to show her 6.3m followers that she was finally sipping on her hot tea.

Before continuing to her next song, Mimi couldn't get over the fact that her one request wasn't met.




Check out the performance in full below. Mid-performance, Carey searched around the stage for a beverage to keep her warm amid the freezing temperatures in New York City's Times Square. "I'm gonna be just like everybody else with no hot tea".

For those that might not remember, Carey's singing career was the "final" victim of 2016.

Even without the tea, her performance gathered strength throughout the set without any obvious glitches - a marked improvement from a year ago.

We didn't have a sound check for this New Year's baby, it is what it is... For "Hero" she was joined by a small choir dressed in white robes, and the extra singers seemed to inspire her to push harder with her own voice. Sure. But in pop the best deliver something beyond technique - some eruption of drama or comedy or outrage like the one Carey provided in 2016 with her lovable star-turn meltdown. "She played it off but was a little mad", the insider adds.
