All Mariah Carey wants for Christmas is a redemption of the performance.

The Grammy Award-winning singer announced she was on her way to “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve ‘ last year’s disastrous performance.

Carey’s performance in the past year, a show on Times Square was marked by painful problems. The “All I want For Christmas Is you” singer stopped singing during the show a few times and was visibly upset despite a previously recorded track that is played in the background.

The chaotic show went viral – but not for the right reasons.

After the show, Carey posted a meme of himself on social media with the message “s— happens.” The fiasco also led to a public fight between Carey and Dick Clark Productions who was at fault.

Carey’s camp claimed that the production company sabotaged her show with technical problems, including a faulty ear piece. The production company denied the allegations and repeated that Carey’s performance was sad, because they are not good to rehearse.

It appears, however, both camps have come to a truce.

“We can all agree that the last year, not exactly as planned and we are excited to work together to provide America with an incredible night of music and celebration on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018,” a joint statement released to The Associated Press said. “See you in Times Square!”

Carey will join Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and Sugarland as other acts scheduled to perform during the show.

Carey was also criticized for a performance that she did during the 2014 “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” tree-lighting ceremony. Deadspin posted a video of Carey’s vocals only for the mark of the missed notes. Carey apologized for the performance.

“Last night’s situation was beyond my control,” she tweeted. “I apologize to all that showed up, you know that I would never want to disappoint you.”
