Mariah Carey's NYE Performance Sparked the First Meme of 2018

This time previous year, her performance in New York's Times Square was dubbed a "trainwreck".

This will be Ciara's first time back on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve since 2005 when she performed her debut single "Goodies".

She returned Sunday night and performed a medley of her songs in sub-zero temps. Once producers counted her into show time, Carey snapped out of her chill and into a roaring rendition of "Vision of Love". "Oh, it's a disaster".

She then declared, "I'm gonna be just like everybody else with no hot tea". It's hard to imagine that someone wouldn't make certain Mariah Carey's hot tea was on stage ready for her. Carey joked as she looked around for the promised cup to no avail, seemingly referencing 2017's show, where she struggled to hit high notes, blaming her problems on a malfunctioning earpiece and ABC.

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

Italian Brothers Start "Steve Jobs" Company and Apple Can't Stop Them
But most of us are just hearing about a little-known court case involving Italian clothing company, Steve Jobs . And the court does not seem to find fault with it, much to the chagrin of Apple that had sued the firm.

But all was forgotten this time around: "I'm feeling a lot than a year ago, when I had to get my own police escort", Carey told Seacrest after he congratulated her on the broadcast.

After the show, Mariah saw the amusing side and posted a snap of her posing with a warm brew and wrote: "Found my 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 awkwardness increased exponentially from there, as Carey stood onstage without singing, throwing slight asides to the audience like, "We didn't have a sound check but it's New Year's, baby, that's OK, you guys", and "I'm trying to be a good sport here".
