Mariah Carey has made it through her set on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” this year after bungling it last year.
Carey had technical difficulties during a live performance of her hit song “Emotions” on the ABC show in Times Square last year. She stopped singing, paced the stage and told the audience to finish the lyrics for her.
This year, she made it through cleanly despite frigid temperatures — and despite asking for hot tea that wasn’t there. She joked it was a “disaster.” Carey performed her hits 1990s “Vision of Love” and “Hero.”
It was the second-coldest Times Square New Year’s Eve on record. The temperature was only 10 degrees (minus 12 degrees Celsius) close to midnight. The coldest ball drop celebration was in 1917, when it was only 1 degree (minus 17 degrees Celsius).
