Mariah Carey Makes Her Triumphant Go back to New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Having a Medley and a Joke BY SAEED NASIR

 

After last year’s epic mishap and ensuing theatre on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, Mariah Carey ensured she made a huge comeback for this year’s second chance–and she didn’t disappoint!

The big-voiced vocalist razzled and dazzled during her New Year’s Eve performance on Sunday night, singing not just one, but two songs for the freezing group.

The notorious diva wowed with her glittering medley of “Vision of Love” and “Hero” and even made a joke at her own price, stating to the audience that the night was a “disaster” because she didn’t have her hot tea.

“They told me there would be hot tea,” she quipped.

The moment we’ve all been waiting for…
Early in the day, the 47-year-old vocalist prepped for the top comeback by rehearsing in Times Square. The smiling big-voiced singer was captured by fan Dyana (and distributed by Erica0808m) getting in a last-minute rehearsal before her late-night set in place.

The singer, who was with Bryan Tanaka, donned a fantastic bomber jacket, black pants plus some sky-high boots for the run through.

Following the rehearsal, the “Sweet Dream” hitmaker got to her Instagram to share some positive (but chilly) vibes with her fans, writing, “Festive even in one digits! See you tonight, everybody!!”

On December. 22, dick clark productions and ABC today released that multi-platinum selling songstress would be returning to Times Square to perform for a live audience greater than one million people, just minutes before the ball drops on NYE.

Previously, Carey made an appearance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in 2005. She returned and made headlines last year as a consequence to a devastating performance, after which she said, “It became an chance to humiliate me.”

But it looks like Carey altered her tune.

At the time of the announcement, both the singer and dick clark productions gave a statement to E! Reports: “We can all agree that this past year didn’t go just as designed and we are thrilled to move ahead collectively to provide America with an unbelievable night of music and party on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018. See you in Times Square!”
