Mariah Carey Finally Gets Her Tea After Slaying New Year’s Eve Performance in Freezing Weather

Mariah Carey made a triumphant return to Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest on Sunday night, and performed live two of her early hits for the excited, albeit freezing, onlookers at Times Square in New York City.

The 47-year-old singer braved the chilly weather in a sparkling gown and white fur coat, and first performed her 1990 song, “Vision of Love,” just minutes before the ball was to drop.

Visibly cold, Carey requested a hot tea before she sang her vocally challenging 1993 hit, “Hero.” When the tea never came, she performed the song anyway.

“I was told there would be tea. Oh, it’s a disaster!” Carey told the audience. “OK, well, we’ll just have to rough it. I’m gonna be like everybody else with no hot tea.”

Thankfully, Carey did eventually get her hot beverage and shared a photo of herself backstage with it. “Found my tea!” she captioned the pic on Instagram.

Found my tea! ☕
