After she performed "Vision of Love", she went back stage for some hot tea that she was promised, but it wasn't there. "They told me there would be tea!" Fans saw her performance as a redemption from last year's show, tarnished by technical difficulties when equipment malfunctioned during Carey's performance of her 1991 hit "Emotions". Far removed from the failed soundcheck and jumbled vocals that translated to flagging viewership the year prior, Carey's glitch-free showstopper brought in the highest numbers boasted by the Ryan Seacrest special since 2000.

"Happy New Year!" she said, addressing the crowd. While, the singer's performance was a success, her requests weren't.

The mother of two later got in on the action by posting a picture on Instagram to show her 6.3m followers that she was finally sipping on her hot tea.

As a physical achievement, the result was impressive; it demonstrated that Carey still has an instrument and can still use it when she wants to.

"They told me there would be tea", Carey said.

The junior still had a superb season, finishing with 2,154 all-purpose yards and 22 touchdowns, including 1,134 yards rushing. Ninety-two yards later, he was in the end zone untouched, giving Penn State a 28-7 lead with 9:01 left in the second quarter.

Host Ryan Seacrest asked Carey how she felt following her performance to which she replied, "I'm feeling a lot better than previous year, when I had to get my own police escort".

"OK, well, we'll just have to rough it", she continued.

This time, in contrast, she was offering technique alone, which left too little space for the freewheeling attitude that truly distinguishes her.

Mariah Carey took to the stage wearing a nude, low cleavage dress and white fur coat in one of the coldest New Year's Eve on record.

One thing that wasn't missing: Carey's boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka.
