Despite the lack of a comforting hot liquid, Carey had no trouble hitting the high notes she is known for and earned wild applause from the audience. And there was no hot tea either, but hey, it could have been worse.

Yes, Carey was forced to join the legions of commoners in attendance at her gig and suffer through the show without a hot beverage.

I'm getting old, which means that every New Year's Eve, my butt is parked on the couch in front of the t.v. instead of facing big crowds and bitter cold in an attempt to buy overpriced drinks that will make me feel less self-conscious about all the P.D.A. going on around me. It's a disaster. O.K. Well, we'll just have to rough it. "They told me there would be tea!"

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

Following 2016's disastrous New Year's Eve performance, which saw Mariah plagued by technical issues and lip sync accusations, the elusive chanteuse returned for her redemption storyline, and she delivered... mostly.

During her New Year's Eve appearance, the songbird flawlessly performed fan favorites like "Vision of Love" and "Hero", but it wasn't Mariah's dulcet tones or her glamorous fur and crystal ensemble that resonated with her fans.

Despite not having her much needed hot tea before the performance, Mariah gave a stellar show.

This time, she personally sound-checked the performance hours in advance. The coldest was in 1907 when temperatures with wind chill felt like -18. All in all, Mariah's 2018 New Year performance was infinitely better than her previous one. After Hero finished, the camera went back to Seacrest.
