Carey, 48, kicked off her latest residency, “The Butterfly Returns,” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Thursday, July 5.
While belting out her classic hit “Boyfriend,” Carey was placed on a rolling box by dancer and boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. But the songstress slipped and fell off the box as it tipped over.
As she fell and dropped her microphone, her high-pitched vocals could still be heard. After righting herself, Carey struggled to catch up to the background track.
When she finished the song, she tried to laugh off the revelation, telling the sold-out crowd, “Sometimes we have a little pain, but it’s alright.”
The faux pas instantly brought back memories of Carey’s disastrous New Year’s Eve performance at the start of 2017.
In that now-classic catastrophe, Carey claimed she was sabotaged by Dick Clark Productions, and made to look bad on purpose to boost the show’s ratings.
