Mariah Carey makes it through Times Square set unscathed
The pop star sang her hits Vision of Love and Hero in Times Square
Happy New Year, Mariah Carey.
The pop singer made it through her performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest cleanly this year after bungling it last year. She sang her 1990s hits Vision of Love and Hero on Sunday night in Times Square, where revellers braved frigid temperatures to usher in 2018.
After Carey sang Vision of Love she looked on stage for some hot tea she said she was promised, but it wasn't there. She quipped, "Oh, it's a disaster."
Last year it really was a disaster. Carey had technical difficulties during a live performance of her hit song Emotions. She stopped singing, paced the stage and told the audience to finish the lyrics for her.
Dick Clark Productions called Carey's claim it sabotaged her performance "absurd." But they worked out their differences.
Members of ABC's broadcast team congratulated Carey on making it through her performance the second time around. Seacrest asked Carey how she felt.
"I'm feeling a lot better than last year," she said, "when I had to get my own police escort."
