But it wasn't almost as hot as the tea she had to go without.

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", she said explained to the crowd after her opening song. It's a disaster. O.K. Well, we'll just have to rough it.

Previous year it really was a disaster.

In 2016 Carey received criticism over the controversial performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

Just one year after the #Lambily leader took the famed Times Square stage to stand motionless as she played with her loose curls and told fans that "It just don't get any better" (it definitely does, btw), the diva returned for round two of the annual broadcast.

And don't worry, Mimi eventually got her tea.

The incident ricocheted instantly across the internet, with detractors giddily proclaiming that Carey had lost the singing ability that made her a star in the early 1990s. Carey had technical difficulties during a live performance of her hit song "Emotions".

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.

The temperature in New York City on Sunday night was only 11 degrees during Carey's performance, which served as a redemption of sorts after the singer's debacle past year on the same stage.

Carey, later took to social media to shade those responsible for not having her tea. The caption read: "That feeling when you steal Mariah Carey's hot tea".
