Mariah Carey made her return to the stage, for the first time after giving birth to twins, in diva-like form.
Wearing a one-sleeved black dress, she changed her shoes after singing two songs and had her hair and make-up touched up.
Mariah, who gave birth to fraternal twins via Caesarean section in April, performed for a few hundred people on Thursday night at New York's Gotham Hall.
Mariah said of her return: "I didn't realise this was a big deal."
The concert was one of four shows dubbed Plot Your Escape: Four Concerts. Countless Celebrities. 1 Epic Night.
Diddy joined Mariah in New York, while Lil Wayne and Cee Lo performed in Los Angeles, Maroon 5 and Sara Bareilles in Chicago, and Mary J. Blige and Gavin DeGraw in New Orleans.
The shows happened simultaneously and were streamed online.
The multiplatinum performer thanked her fans and joked: "Catch me at my real show next time."
