Mariah Carey Finally Got Her Hot Tea on New Year's Eve

Adjust Comment Print

During her performance, Carey paused in between songs to ask for some tea, but the "All I Want For Christmas" singer find out there was none.

And so, sans warm fluids (which are actually super important for vocal cord health), Carey finished her glamorous performance of hit songs "Vision of Love" and "Hero".

Mariah Carey made a simple request while performing at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest this year - a hot cup of tea. "Get these monitors on please", she said.

Want to hear what Mariah had to say about her disastrous New Year's Eve performance in 2016? Okay, well, we'll just have to rough it. "I'm going to be like everybody else, with no hot tea", she continued.

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. "Much love and respect always!" For "Hero" she was joined by a small choir dressed in white robes, and the extra singers seemed to inspire her to push harder with her own voice. "She wanted to prove herself".

Carey's performance previous year was an abject, Murphy's Law-level disaster.

This time, in contrast, she was offering technique alone, which left too little space for the freewheeling attitude that truly distinguishes her.

"Did Mariah Carey just have a tantrum over tea?" 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.
