Mariah Carey Performs New Year's Eve Set Unscathed After Last Year's Disaster

Mariah Carey Dick Clark Productions Says ... Give Her The Chair!!

But as she was preparing for her next song, "Hero", Carey made a decision to take a much needed hot beverage break - there was only one problem.

"I'm just gonna take a sip of tea if you'll let me", the 47-year-old quipped.

"Happy New Year!" Carey said, addressing the crowd.

But all was forgotten this time around: "I'm feeling a lot than previous year, when I had to get my own police escort", Carey told Seacrest after he congratulated her on the broadcast. OK, well, we'll just have to rough it. The action starts at 8:00 p.m. EST and goes on past New Year's Eve with an end time of 2:13 a.m. Mariah Carey will be returning to perform this year in Times Square along with Nick Jonas, Camila Cabello, and Sugarland.

Later, in response to her hot tea "disaster", Carey tweeted "Found my tea!"

Like a attractive crystal-covered phoenix, Mariah Carey has risen jubilant from the ashes of her "disastrous" New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest performance last year, having put on a perfectly adequate set as part of Sunday night's show.

In very rare instances there are of course technical errors that can occur with live television, however, an initial investigation has indicated that Dick Clark Productions had no involvement in the challenges associated with Ms. Carey's "New Year's Eve" performance.

People on Twitter are saying that if Mariah can sing in the cold without her hot tea, then we can make it through 2018!

Show host Ryan Seacrest, 43, later asked Mariah about her performance after the ball dropped.

It was billed as a comeback performance for the star after last year's NYE gig, which was plagued by numerous technical problems. It's a shame she can't perform like she use to.
