"I'm just going to take a sip of tea if they'll let me. I'm gonna be like everybody else with no hot tea", said Carey. And there was no hot tea either, but hey, it could have been worse.

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

When it seemed, there was no tea to be found she continued: "Oh this is a disaster, well we're just going to have to rough it".

When Mariah Carey hit the stage at New Year's Rockin' Eve special, she had fans on pins and needles after she revealed that she didn't receive the hot tea she was promised.

Mariah Carey rebounded on her return to Times Square's New Year's Eve celebration Sunday after a shaky performance, marred by technical difficulties, last year. All in all, Mariah's 2018 New Year performance was infinitely better than her previous one. "We didn't have a check for this song... we're missing some of the vocals, but it is what it is".

Even without the tea, her performance gathered strength throughout the set without any obvious glitches - a marked improvement from past year. She stopped singing, paced the stage and told the audience to finish the lyrics for her. Rewatch her performance and vote below.

In a freaky discussion before she started, Mariah lamented the fact that there was no hot tea for her drink on stage. She opened with "Vision of Love", which wasn't great, but considering the wind chill, she gets a pass. After Hero finished, the camera went back to Seacrest.

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.
