Mariah Carey's NYE Performance Sparked the First Meme of 2018

New Year's Eve 2018: Where To Watch Celebration Coverage

After her performance this year she posted a photo to Twitter joking that she was finally able to get some hot tea after leaving the stage.

"Happy New Year!" Carey said, as she addressed the crowd. We're told their solution is to put Mariah in a chair and literally roll her from the stage to the ball. OK, well, we'll just have to rough it.

Mariah Carey made headlines last year with her New Year's Rockin' Eve performance in New York's Times Square - and not for a good reason.

Mariah Carey performs during New Year's Eve 2017 in Times Square, Dec. 31, 2016 in New York City. I'm gonna be just like everybody else with NO hot tea - but we're gonna try and do this one for you, because I just want to show my appreciation for everyone who speaks out for justice, and tries to make the world a better place.

Android 8.0 Oreo rolling out to Moto Z2 Force on T
As promised , Taiwanese manufacturer Asus has begun rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for its Zenfone 4 ZE554KL smartphone. The dual camera comes with dual LED flash, phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and correlated colour temperature (CCT).

The 47-year-old pop diva had a trying time in 2017: she spent most of it embroiled in a nasty financial dispute with ex-fiance James Packer. She then went into a pretty convincing performance of Hero with a gospel choir backing her up. It will be Britney Spears' first television performance in all of 2018, she last performed on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve in 2002. Some critics complained because Mariah didn't hit her signature high notes, but we can safely assume that was because she didn't have enough hot tea to lubricate her vocal cords.

Even without the tea, Carey's performance gathered strength throughout the set without any obvious glitches - a marked improvement from a year ago.

When show host Ryan Seacrest, later asked Carey about her performance, she replied, "I'm feeling better than past year". I'm just going to let the audience sing.
