Mariah Carey was carried into the Caesars Palace resort by men dressed as gladiators to mark the launch of her Las Vegas residency.
The pop superstar made a grand entrance in Sin City on Monday (27Apr15) to celebrate the start of her Mariah #1 to Infinity shows at the casino's The Colosseum venue next month (May15).
Carey arrived in a pink car behind 18 billboards emblazoned with the names of her number one songs, and she then climbed onto a red velvet recliner to be carried into the resort by hunky performers.
The singer documented the event in a series of photographs on her Instagram.com page, and added in a caption, "Festivity!!! Thank you for such an amazing welcome. See you at the shows!!!! #1toInfinity."
The shows begin on 6 May (15) and run until July (15).
