Mariah Carey “Infinity” Billboard Music Awards Video: Watch Superstar’s First BBMA Performance In 17 Years Here!
Mariah Carey performed at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, her first time singing at the awards show in more than 20 years. Watch below!
After an introduction about her record-breaking career, the singer started off by singing “Vision of Love” in honor of the song’s 25th anniversary. She then segued into “Infinity,” her new single from #1 to Infinity, the compilation album featuring all of Carey’s number one hits. As Gossip Cop reported, the song debuted last month, and many assumed the lyrics took shots at the star’s estranged husband Nick Cannon. Carey denied that, and Cannon’s been promoting both the track and the record on Instagram.
Carey last took the Billboard Awards stage for a performance back in 1998. That same year, the superstar was honored for having 13 number one singles. She was also nominated for Top R&B Female Artist, Top R&B Female Artist, and Top Hot Dance Maxi-Singles Sales. While she lost in those categories, she’s won more than 30 Billboard awards over the years, and has been nominated nearly 90 times.
After performing at the MGM Grand Garden Arena tonight, Carey had to head to Caesar’s Palace for her “MARIAH #1 TO INFINITY” residency. As Gossip Cop previously reported, the concert series kicked off earlier this month. Last week, however, she canceled a show at the last minute, citing bronchitis. After a few days of vocal rest, Carey resumed the shows on Saturday, and now performed live at the BBMAs. Check out the video below, and tell us how you think Carey did with the high notes.
