Yes, Mariah Carey Finally Got a Cup of Hot Tea on New Year's Eve

January 2, 2018

The question may have kept you up the past couple of nights: did Mariah Carey ever find her cup of hot tea? You know... the one she was asking for during her performance on ABC's Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve

After performing "Vision of Love," Mariah said: “I just want to take a sip of tea if they’ll let me," she said. "they told me there would be tea.” 

There was no tea to be found on the stage, so Mariah "roughed it" during the second-coldest New Year's Eve on record in Times Square.  “Oh, it’s a disaster. Okay, well we’ll just have to rough it," Mariah joked as temperatures hovered around 9-degrees Fahrenheit. "I’m going to be just like everybody else with no hot tea.”

Mariah went on to perform "Hero," without the hot tea. However, she shared a photo with her hot tea on Instagram later in the night
