Mariah Carey: Back in Black at New York Concert

While Lil Wayne, Cee Lo Green, and Mary J. Blige performed at shows across the country, Mariah Carey headlined a free concert in New York City for Caesars Total Rewards “Plot Your Escape.” Following a set from fellow New Yorker Diddy, the pop diva stormed the stage at Gotham Hall for her first live gig since giving birth to her twins Monroe and Moroccan last year.

Showing off her curves in a black fishtail gown, MC hit all the right notes during her eight-song set, which included “It’s Like That,” “Shake It Off,” “Touch My Body,” “Obsessed,” “Always Be My Baby,” “We Belong Together,” and “Hero.”

Watch her perform a new version of “Shake It Off” below.
