Mariah Carey suffers wardrobe malfunction at first Las Vegas show

Mariah Carey brushed off an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction as she kicked off her Las Vegas residency on Wednesday night (06May15).

The Hero hitmaker debuted her Mariah #1 to Infinity show at The Colosseum in Caesars Palace and ran through all 18 of her chart-topping hits in chronological order, including Hero, Dreamlover and We Belong Together.


She kicked off with her first number one, 1990 single Vision of Love, arriving onstage in a glittering gown on a moving platform between two giant butterflies.


Carey changed costume seven times throughout the two-hour set and suffered a minor wardrobe malfunction when the back of a revealing jewelled minidress came undone. Carey continued to talk to the audience as two members of staff ran onstage to secure the dress.


The pop diva also descended into the crowd during Always Be My Baby and was mobbed by fans, prompting security guards to step in and pull her back to the stage.


Her onstage props included a bed, a pink convertible car and a bright yellow jetski, and she received multiple standing ovations from the audience.


Carey ended the night with her first ever live performance of new single Infinity.


After the show, the singer posted a video on Instagram.com showing her and her crew toasting the night with glasses of Champagne. She wrote in the caption, "Cheers!! Opening night!! Thank you everyone!!! #1toInfinity"


Carey is scheduled to perform three nights a week in May (15) and July (15).
