Mariah Carey's Redemption Performance Proves She Is The Queen Of The Holidays

Mariah Carey Avoids New Year's Eve Disaster Repeat Despite Lack of Hot Tea

"I'll be just like everyone else with no hot tea", the singer, adorned in a large white coat over a sparkling leotard, told the huddled crowd. And there was no hot tea either, but hey, it could have been worse.

The incident ricocheted instantly across the internet, with detractors giddily proclaiming that Carey had lost the singing ability that made her a star in the early 1990s.

Host Ryan Seacrest asked Carey how she felt following her performance to which she replied, "I'm feeling a lot better than past year, when I had to get my own police escort".

"She redeemed herself", the insider says. "OK, well we'll just have to rough it", she said after no hot drink appeared.

Mariah Carey's 2017 "New Year's Rockin' Eve" performance proved to be the ultimate redemption for the barely-choreographed lip-synced disaster from the previous year's broadcast.

She sang her 1990s hits "Vision of Love" and "Hero" on Sunday night in Times Square, where revelers braved frigid temperatures to usher in 2018.




This time, she personally sound-checked the performance hours in advance.

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.

Shortly after the performance, Carey uploaded a picture sipping tea with the caption:.

You may recall that last year, the Touch My Body singer was heavily criticized for her tragic performance during Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.

"And that is why she is Mariah Carey", said the show's host, Ryan Seacrest, after she finished, but surely even Seacrest had to know that wasn't true.
