If you had any doubt in your mind…Mariah Carey’s performance last night at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest proved she’s still got it. There was a lot of buildup to the big event, which was Mimi’s big chance to redeem herself after that infamous 2016 NYE debacle, and she rose to the occasion—in a sparkling gown and white fur, no less.

It didn’t go entirely without a hitch, though—after performing her first song, “Vision of Love,” Carey discovered all she wanted for New Year’s (hot tea) was not available. “I was told there would be tea. Oh, it’s a disaster!” she told the audience. “Okay well we’ll just have to rough it. I’m gonna be like everybody else with no hot tea.”

Spectacular performance by @MariahCarey. ✨ #RockinEve

Tea or no tea, she went on to nail the rest of her performance, which included next featured her hit “Hero,” replete with a gospel choir.

Happy New Year!!!! ♥️🦋🎉

The night ended with on a high note for Carey, as she hilariously posted a picture of herself enjoying hot tea to social media after the performance.

Found my tea! ☕

“Found my tea!,” she captioned the cozy post. Looks like the year’s officially off to a good start.
