Mariah Carey is heading to Sin City!

The "You're Mine" singer revealed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday that she will soon be performing in Las Vegas as an artist in residence, telling Ellen DeGeneres, "I'm going to do my first-ever residency in Vegas at Caesar's. This is a special event for me and I have to hope that the fans will enjoy this, because I'm going to be performing, which was kind of inspired by my album Number 1's."

"This is now the updated version with 18 of them, so hopefully, other people will enjoy this," she continued. "I've never done this before." The superstar songstress is the latest singer to commit to a Vegas residency, following in the footsteps of Britney Spears, Cher, and Celine Dion.
