Carey redeems herself on New Year's Eve

Confetti drops over the crowd as the clock strikes midnight during the New Year's celebration in Times Square as seen from the Marriott Marquis in New York Monday Jan. 1 2018

After Carey sang "Vision of Love" she looked on stage for some hot tea she said she was promised, but it was not there. "They told me there would be tea".

Extremely pleased with Mariah's performance, a slew of Twitter users congratulated the songstress for a job well done.

"Just want to take a sip of tea if they'll let me", Mariah said, between songs.

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".

Mariah Carey, elusive chanteuse and patron saint of all things festive, had a triumphant return to the New Year's Rockin' Eve stage on Sunday night, where she effectively redeemed herself from last year's disastrous and technical difficulty-plagued performance, but perhaps more importantly, served up a diva moment so fabulous that it gave us the first meme of 2018. "She was ready to play", a source tells Us Weekly exclusively.

Yes, Carey was forced to join the legions of commoners in attendance at her gig and suffer through the show without a hot beverage. She also stayed on in mostly one spot onstage for the majority of her performance, further removing any possibility of a disaster. 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.

Well, Carey made a decision to redeem herself and her career and make another appearance at the annual New Year's Eve show.

Mariah Carey performs on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin" Eve' at Times Square in New York City on December 31, 2017. Sure. But in pop the best deliver something beyond technique - some eruption of drama or comedy or outrage like the one Carey provided in 2016 with her lovable star-turn meltdown.
