As history shows, Mariah Carey doesn't know how to do anything small. And her arrival at Caesars Palace for her Las Vegas residency proves that.
The Grammy-winning songstress showed up to the casino and hotel Monday (April 27) in a 1936 pink convertible trailing behind 18 mobile billboards spelling out the titles of her number one hits. Those singles include "Always Be My Baby," "Heartbreaker," "Hero," "Vision of Love" and more.
And if that wasn't enough, Carey was carried through the casino by gladiator-clad men, reports The Associated Press.
"Everyone in Vegas, there's a new girl in town," Carey told an excited crowd of fans.
The elusive chanteuse will kick off her show, "Mariah #1 to Infinity," on May 6 at The Colosseum with performances through July. Carey is expected to perform her 18 number one hits, including her newest single "Infinity," which has been rumored to be a dig at her estranged husband Nick Cannon.
Carey follows in the footsteps of Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Cher, Bette Midler, Shania Twain and others who've landed Vegas residences in the past.
