Carey, who had her twins with husband Nick Cannon in April, told the crowd, "It's my first performance since having dem babies!"
Carey wore a form-fitting black dress onstage, and belted out hits like “Shake It Off,” “Touch My Body,” “It’s Like That,“ “Obsessed” and “We Belong Together.” Carey dedicated “Always Be My Baby” to her two babies.
Carey also told the crowd that she wanted to bring her two children to the show, but added that, “It's time for them to be asleep.”

Carey also gave a shout out to her husband later in the show. Cannon recently stepped down from hosting his radio show after suffering from health scares, most recently, blood clots in his lungs.
