Mariah Carey's redemptive NYE performance

One year after a very disastrous New Year's Eve performance, Mariah Carey returned to the same stage last night redeeming herself with a scaled-down New Year's Eve set. Mariah performed two of her classics for ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve 2018. 

'Hero' was clearly the better performance out of the two. It just flowed better. 'Vision of Love' was a little rough. Vocals were also choppy and she was singing in a much lower register, but clearly this was done to make the songs easier to sing. It was cold as hell with temperatures plummeting to a wind chill of -20C and Mariah still braved it without any hot tea. She sort of made it a big deal in a jokey kind of way. Buuuttt... you just know if the performance went tits up, she'd have blamed her poor assistant for not not having that hot tea on stand by! Despite the freezing cold, Mimi still managed to serve a very solid live vocal. Result!
