Mariah Carey receives 2,556th star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
She’s scored 18 No. 1 hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, placing her only behind The Beatles for the record. She has also won five Grammys, 21 American Music Awards and was selected as Billboard’s Artist of the Decade for the 1990s.
Carey’s honor comes in the midst of her latest career move as a Las Vegas headliner. In May, she began her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where she performs her No. 1 hits, including “Vision of Love,” “Hero” and “We Belong Together.”
Carey was actually selected in 2007 to receive a star and “just recently set the date,” according to Ana Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
