Mariah's back after having twins...and yes, she's still a diva

Mariah Carey made her return to the stage since giving birth to twins in diva-like form: she changed her shoes after singing two songs and touched up her hair and make-up in a one-sleeve black dress, all in front of an eager audience.

Carey, who gave birth to twins via C-section in April, performed for a few hundred people on Thursday night at New York's Gotham Hall.

Of her return she said, "I didn't realise this was a big deal."

The concert was one of four shows called Plot Your Escape: Four Concerts. Countless Celebrities. 1 Epic Night, by Caesars Entertainment. Diddy joined Carey in New York, while Lil Wayne and Cee Lo were in Los Angeles, Maroon 5 and Sara Bareilles in Chicago, and Mary J Blige and Gavin DeGraw in New Orleans.
