The temperature in New York City on Sunday night was only 11 degrees during Carey's performance, which served as a redemption of sorts after the singer's debacle a year ago on the same stage.
The songstress was headlining Dick Clark's "New Year's Rockin" Eve', and considering the current subzero temperatures in NY, her request was somewhat justified. But by the time she got to "Hero", the second of her two-song set, she was our hero.
Mariah Carey Served Tea Sympathy on Twitter
Last year's show ended in disaster when the track for her 1991 hit Emotions malfunctioned during her performance. She then went into a pretty convincing performance of Hero with a gospel choir backing her up.
Despite not having her much needed hot tea before the performance, Mariah gave a stellar show.
In spite of the frigid temperatures and broken promise for tea, Carey put on quite the show, making us forget the trainwreck of New Year's Eve 2016.
While the "All I Want For Christmas" singer sounded far better than she did at last year's event, she appeared to have one of her notorious "diva moments" when the drink she wanted was unavailable.
Temporary outage at Customs leads to longer lines
CBP has not given an explanation of what caused the disruption in the system but did say it was not "malicious in nature". It added that all airports came back online after the outage lasted from 7:30 pm to about 9:30 pm ET.
For those that might not remember, Carey's singing career was the "final" victim of 2016.
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". She opened with "Vision of Love", which wasn't great, but considering the wind chill, she gets a pass. "We didn't have a check for this song... we're missing some of the vocals, but it is what it is. I'm gonna be like everybody else with no hot tea", said Carey.
Mariah Carey is back on form.
