  • Mariah Carey performs during New Year's Eve 2017 in Times Square

The pop diva confirmed that she will return to Times Square in NY to ring in 2018, a year after she was humiliated by technical issues at the annual televised ball-drop.

Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve will begin on ABC at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 31.

But both sides have kissed and made up. Carey wound up walking around the stage without singing in what can only be described as a meltdown.

Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles (17 self-penned), more than any solo artist in history. Carey later claimed her performance was sabotaged.

The 47-year-old entertainer suffered a major technical malfunction and was accused of lip-syncing during her performance on ABC's New Year's Rockin' Eve last year. The show is marking its 46 anniversary, and Seacrest has hosted from Times Square for the past 12 years.

Carey will join Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas, and Sugarland at the event in Times Square, with a special appearance by Britney Spears via satellite from Las Vegas.

She half-heartedly mimed her way through her hit "Emotions", in what was meant to be the entertainment climax for the throngs waiting hours in the cold in Times Square.

The show has confirmed to ABC Radio that the five-time Grammy Award victor will return to the celebration to bring in 2018. She developed a close association with the holiday season through her hit "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and for several years has performed a set of Christmas-themed concerts in NY.

Carey also teased her return to the NYE broadcast on Twitter, calling it "take two".
