Mariah Carey is giving the gays everything they want.
The Queen of R&B is currently taking residence in Las Vegas once again with her new show The Butterfly Returns, and while she may only be a few shows into her three-month-long run, she’s already making headlines.
During a performance on Saturday night, Mariah halted her show mid-way to invite one of her backing dancers onto the stage, who was later joined by his boyfriend – there’s no prizes for guessing what happened next.
“We’ve been planning this for a long time, and you didn’t know about this, so hopefully you’re going to be surprised in a very good way,” Mariah said to her dancer, before handing the stage over to the couple for their special moment.
