Twitter goes insane after Mariah Carey demands 'hot tea' mid performance

Accompanied by musicians whose heavy coats made you think only more about how cold Carey must've been, she played with her phrasing and added little melodic flourishes to show this was no hard drive we were hearing. Unlike previous year, hours before she performed live on Sunday night, Mariah could be seen doing a sound check. 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.

After Carey sang "Vision of Love" she looked behind her for some hot tea she said she was promised but it wasn't there.

Mariah Carey found a way to make her career sparkle after Glitter. She wanted it then.

Last year's performance was riddled with technical issues, with Mariah claiming she couldn't hear herself.

Jose Mourinho BLASTS Man Utd legend Paul Scholes after Paul Pogba comments
I know my players so when I see people like [Juan] Mata nearly in hysterics I know, no doubt, and then at half-time I watch it. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes bad luck is behind his team's recent Premier League struggles.

"Oh, I'm feeling a lot better than past year, when I had to get my own police escort to walk away", she said, after Seacrest asked how she was feeling.

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio even warned that it wasn't a "great idea" to bring young children to Times Square because of the extreme cold.

The city's coldest celebration on record occurred in 1917, according to FOX5NY, when temperatures dropped to 1 degree at midnight.

The line-up of live musical acts included Nick Jonas, Neil Diamond and Camila Cabello.

Fans react to Bills making the playoffs
The other potential way into the playoffs was wiped out with the Chargers beating the Raiders and the Titans beating the Jaguars . Landry was cited for disrespecting an official, and Drake for throwing his helmet 20 yards in anger.

The police also carried out two rounds of security screening on each person who entered the Times Square security perimeter, which was the largest in history.

Past year it really was a disaster. Despite the lack of a comforting hot liquid, Carey had no trouble hitting the high notes she is known for and earned wild applause from the audience.

This time, she personally sound-checked the performance hours in advance.

Later, in the shadiest, most glamorous New Year's photo to ring in 2018, Carey later posted a picture of herself sipping a cup of hot tea from her dressing room. After Hero finished, the camera went back to Seacrest.

"It just don't get any better", she said to finish the hilarious 2016 gig, and she may have been right.
