Mariah Carey gives us first meme of 2018

Posted January 03, 2018

"They told me there would be tea!"

Extremely pleased with Mariah's performance, a slew of Twitter users congratulated the songstress for a job well done.

"I just want to take a sip of tea if they'll let me - they told me there would be tea", the singer quipped. It's a disaster. O.K. Well, we'll just have to rough it.

While the "All I Want For Christmas" singer sounded far better than she did at last year's event, she appeared to have one of her notorious "diva moments" when the drink she wanted was unavailable.

If you're unaware or don't remember, there were numerous technical glitches and errors during Mariah's NYE performance a year ago, making the situation so bad that Carey stopped singing, and stood awkwardly on stage as the background track played before she stormed off stage. "We didn't have a check for this song... we're missing some of the vocals, but it is what it is. Get these monitors on please", she said. She had technical difficulties during a live performance of her 1991 hit Emotions.

Wearing a sparkly nude dress and white fur-like coat, the 47-year-old sang "perfectly acceptable" renditions of "Vision of Love" and "Hero" in Times Square, yet it was what she said between the songs that stole most of the attention, per the Los Angeles Times.

In spite of the frigid temperatures and broken promise for tea, Carey put on quite the show, making us forget the trainwreck of New Year's Eve 2016.

Following her performance, Carey posted a picture later on in the evening to show fans that her hot tea had finally arrived. I'm gonna be just like everybody else with no hot tea.

Mariah Carey is back on form. "She played it off but was a little mad", the insider adds.
