Mariah Carey made her triumphant return to the stage last week, marking the first time she has performed since giving birth to her twin babies in April.
Hitting the stage for Caesar’s Entertainment “Escape to Total Rewards” event, Mariah flaunted her slim figure in a curve hugging black dress, as she belted a seven song set which included hits like “It’s Like That,” “Shake It Off,” “Touch My Body,” “Obsessed,” “We Belong Together” and a cover of the Jackson 5′s “I’ll Be There.”
Mariah revealed during the concert that she thought about bringing “dem babies” to the show but realized it’d be past their bedtime — so she decided not to. Although Monroe and Moroccan (affectionately nicknamed Roc and Roe) weren’t there, Mariah dedicated “Always Be My Baby” to them, much to the delight of the crowd.
“Nick, I love you. I know you’re out there somewhere,” Mariah cooed into the mic.
“Coming complete with an onstage beauty crew and even making a few pauses to get a spritz of perfume, Mariah proved she’s still the diva her fans have always known and loved,” one concertgoer tells Celebuzz.
Although she had some trouble with her ear piece and laughed off forgetting a few lyrics, Mariah brought down the house. She even returned to the stage for an encore to sing her hit, “Hero.”
“Mariah seemed a little nervous when she hit the stage, but she’s a total pro and will hopefully be touring again in no time,” another partygoer added.
