After last year's disastrous live performance, Mariah Carey returned to the "New Year's Rockin" Eve' stage for redemption.

Ryan Seacrest said he's happy that Mariah Carey is set to return for tonight's New Year's Eve celebration one year after the singer's botched performance.

The pop superstar performed at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2017, in a now-infamous performance that was filled with technical difficulties.

There Carey belted out a completely lip-sync-free rendition of her very first hit, "Vision of Love", before launching into her 1993 single, "Hero".

Carey lamented the lack of hot tea onstage to combat the cold temperatures, saying, "They told me there would be hot tea". "Oh, it's a disaster. We'll just have to rough it".

Not to be outdone, the Queen herself got in on the joke, posting, "Found my tea!" post-performance.

Previous year it really was a disaster.

Ciara will be hosting New Year's Rockin' Eve 2018 festivities over on the West Coast in Los Angeles' Hollywood Party.

Carey told the audience, "I was told there would be tea".

Carey is known for being a diva and with her past reality programs, HSN shopping infomercials, and headline-worthy appearances has a reputation for being a woman who celebrates the luxuries in life.

The five-time Grammy victor revealed on New Year's Day that she was finally able to sip on her desired beverage after a beyond chilly night. Some critics complained because Mariah didn't hit her signature high notes, but we can safely assume that was because she didn't have enough hot tea to lubricate her vocal cords.

Refusing to sing the song, she said, "I'm trying to be a good sport here".
