Last year, Mariah Carey rang in 2017 with what was widely described as a disastrous performance on New Year's Rockin' Eve. If that was a signal of the year to come, then there's hope for 2018 yet. Last night, Mariah Carey once again took the stage on New Year's Rockin' Eve to redeem herself.
And it's safe to say she succeeded.
Carey nailed a live rendition of "Vision of Love" without the aid of a backing track, just to prove to any doubters that she still has it.
"I just want to take a sip of tea if they’ll let me — they told me there would be tea," she said during the performance. "Oh, it’s a disaster. Okay, well we’ll just have to rough it. I’m going to be just like everybody else with no hot tea."
And yeah, Mariah found her tea...in more ways than one.
