Mariah Carey Gives Epic Performance at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve – See Photos

All eyes were on Mariah Carey as she took the stage last night for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018 in frigid temperatures in the middle of Times Square.  

Last year’s performance didn’t go quite as planned, leaving Mariah struggling through the performance without any music in her ears.  However, the powerhouse was back at it!

She stepped on that stage in Mariah fashion in a long gold glittering gown along with a warm white fur jacket saying “Happy New Year” to the freezing crowd of an estimated nearly 1 million people.

Mariah sung two of her hits, the first being “Vision of Love” followed by her 1993 hit, “Hero.”  

After singing her first song, Mariah spoke out saying, “Just want to take a sip of tea if they’ll let me.  They told me there would be tea.  Well we’ll just have to rough it.”  

The next song, “Hero” began and she completely hit it out of the park!
