Making final preparations in the days before the debut of her headlining residency, "MARIAH #1 TO INFINITY," which kicks off on Wednesday, May 6, the five-time Grammy Award winner arrived in grand fashion with a parade of 18 mobile billboards, each vehicle representing and celebrating one of each of Mariah's 18 timeless and beloved Number One Hits. As the city's newest headliner pulled up in front of the iconic Caesars Palace porte cochere in a pink 1936 Auburn Boattail, fans went wild to welcome Mariah as she emerged from the car and was greeted by Caesar himself. The superstar was then carried by Caesar's centurions through the property, and was accompanied by her dancers. Stopping on the front steps of The Colosseum, Mariah was then welcomed by Caesars Entertainment CEO Gary Loveman and President of Global Touring with AEG Live, John Meglen.
