Mariah Carey ended 2016 with a whimper, so when everyone found out that she would be returning for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest to help say goodbye to 2017, the world couldn’t help but be wary. But silly us. If anyone can mount an epic comeback to make us all swoon, it’s Mariah. And in true Mimi style, she slayed it like the true diva she is, but not without making some demands first — and one demand was never met.

“Just want to take a sip of tea if they’ll let me,” Mariah said, between songs. “They told me there would be tea.”

Unfortunately, there wasn’t a drop of it in sight.

Ultimately, she told the crowd she’d “rough it” through the disaster without her hot beverage, thus birthing the first meme of the new year.

In spite of the frigid temperatures and broken promise for tea, Carey put on quite the show, making us forget the trainwreck of New Year’s Eve 2016. She opened with “Vision of Love,” which wasn’t great, but considering the wind chill, she gets a pass. But by the time she got to “Hero,” the second of her two-song set, she was our hero.

And don’t worry, Mimi eventually got her tea.

The main takeaway from this? Mimi doesn’t need hot tea to get the job done. She might not like to walk from her bedroom to her bathroom, and needs a dozen people to help her put on a pair of stilettos, but her voice is so magical, it can overcome even the most challenging conditions. May the rest of Mariah’s 2018 be fantastic, and filled with lots and lots of hot tea.
