It's never too late to get your groove back, and in an impressive show of strength, Mariah Carey is trying New Year's Eve all over again.

During her 2016 appearance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, the pop star performed a glaringly lip-synced rendition of "Aude Lang Syne." Later, Carey experienced technical difficulties during her own 1991 song, "Emotion."

"Well, Happy New Year! We can’t hear!" the singer announced as the track played. "We didn’t have a check for this song, so we’ll just say it went to number one… I’m going to say let the audience sing."

Another song, "We Belong Together," got about the same treatment.

The appearance was a major spectacle, landing Carey on 2016's most trending list in the final hour.

We must give credit where it's due, though, because she is not going down without a fight. In a press release distributed Friday, Dec. 22, Carey's team announced she would return to the show in 2017:

"We can all agree that last year didn’t go exactly as planned and we are thrilled to move forward 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. See you in Times Square!"

Carey echoed the statement in a tweet on Friday.

"Take 2," she wrote simply.

Carey, 47, had a very successful "All I Want for Christmas Is You" tour this year.

Here's hoping NYE 2017 is just as smooth.
