Better than last year: Mariah Carey's triumphant return to New Year's eve

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

The singer ultimately deciding that she could "rough it" and join everyone else who struggled through without a fresh hot beverage.

Mariah Carey's got her second chance at performing during "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest" after totally bombing last year, but she didn't just slay her performances - she became an internet sensation in the process, and it was all thanks to her love of tea.

No tea was brought on stage for the Fantasy hitmaker but it didn't stop her from continuing with her knockout performance. On top of that, only a true diva would withstand below freezing temperatures just to rock a hot, sparkly outfit. It's hard to imagine that someone wouldn't make certain Mariah Carey's hot tea was on stage ready for her.

Watch Carey's full New Year's Eve redemption below.

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve airs live December 31 starting at 8 p.m. ET from New York's Times Square.

Carey told the audience, "I was told there would be tea". Seacrest asked Carey how she felt. While at least she got through this year without a major meltdown like last year, the final result still isn't great.

The 47-year-old was decked in a sparkling nude gown, a knee-length white fur coat and enough jewels to compete with the Time Square Ball as she made her way to the mic to wow the crowd.

After the show, Mariah saw the amusing side and posted a snap of her posing with a warm brew and wrote: "Found my tea!"

Social media had plenty of fun with the news she was up for the gig again with one Twitter user writing, "Mariah Carey's flop on New Year's Eve this year was literally the best thing that happened in 2017 and I can't wait to see her do it again in 3 days".
