Mariah Carey Deems NYE a 'Disaster' After Tea Gets Misplaced

Mariah Carey returned to Times Square for her highly anticipated performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2018 and while her performance went well, she still called the moment a disaster!

In between her performances of “Vision of Love” and “Hero,” Mariah asked if it would be okay for her to go take a sip of tea.

“I’m just going to take a sip of tea if they’ll let me. They told me there would be tea,” Mariah said. Then she couldn’t find it and said, “Ugh, 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.”

Mariah was able to redeem herself after her performance at the event last year went horribly wrong when she couldn’t hear the music in her ear.

What Time is Mariah Carey Performing on New Year's Eve 2018?

Mariah Carey is set to take the stage for the second year in a row during 2018′s New Year’s Eve celebration.

Last year, Mariah‘s performance went disastrously wrong when her earpiece malfunctioned and she couldn’t hear her music.

“I know everybody felt like, ‘That is not how we want the memory to live on.’ What is the memory we all want? I think it’s to have a crushing performance in Times Square,” host of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Ryan Seacrest said in an interview. “I don’t know if the idea was hers or ours, but it’s a great idea, and so we’re happy to have her back.”

There are reports floating around that Mariah will be headlining the show again this year, which would mean she’d be performing closer to midnight, but no official time has been revealed just yet. Stay tuned as we find out more information, and check out the full list of performers here!

Tune in to see Mariah on New Year’s Rocking’ Eve on ABC.

Here's What Happened to Mariah Carey During New Year's Eve 2017 Performance

One year ago, Mariah Carey took the stage for a New Year’s Eve 2017 performance live from Times Square that went horribly wrong.

Last year while performing at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2017, she took the stage to headline the show and perform “Auld Lang Syne,” “Emotion,” and “We Belong Together.”

While singing “Auld Lang Syne,” fans suspected Mariah was lip-syncing. Then, when “Emotion” began, Mariah told the crowd that she couldn’t hear the music and she stood on stage trying to figure out where the song was, but she wasn’t able to continue. When “We Belong Together” started, it seemed that Mariah had gotten back on track, but the same thing happened again.

Mariah ended the performance with the background vocals playing and her doing some dance moves on stage before leaving.

Sources revealed Mariah couldn’t hear through her earpiece and didn’t have enough time to rehearse.

Mariah also commented on the performance hours later and said “sh*t happens.”

Mariah will be returning for another performance on the show tonight!
