Mariah Carey kicked off her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace last night with her comeback extravaganza “Mariah #1 to Infinity.” See pics and videos inside…
Last night, Mariah Carey pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in pop music history when her “Mariah #1 to Infinity” show opened at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Before the curtain was raised, Ken Ehrlich, the show’s director on-stage told the sold-out crowd, “You’re going to hear songs that are the soundtrack of your lives all night long.”
The soundtrack began with “Vision of Love” as Mariah, in the first of several glitzy gowns, arrived center stage on a moving platform in between two giant butterflies.
From there, Mariah went through her catalogue of 18 number one hit singles in chronological order from 1990 to 2008. She ended the show with her latest single, “Infinity” and a confetti-cannon explosion into the crowd. As the audience screamed “I love you”, she chimed back “I love you more, don’t even try it.”
The show lasted nearly two-hours and by all reports and social media recaps, she nailed it. The voice is back! Although Mimi was criticized for previous live performances, she’s clearly taken the criticism to heart and she’s now in fighting form!
And from what we’ve seen reposted on social media, she REALLY sang! Check it out:
