Los Angeles - Mariah Carey joined the honoured names on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, a tribute to the versatile singer's 25 years of stardom.
Dressed in true diva fashion in a long, tight dress with black sequined necklines on both front and back, Carey sported sunglasses as she watched the unveiling of her name as number 2 556 on the celebrated walkway.
Carey, famous for her five-octave range, thanked fans who have supported her through a career that has produced such smash pop hits as Hero, We Belong Together and Someday.
"I can't thank you enough. You're melting my heart. That's why I keep my sunglasses," she said.
Carey, who is around 45 but whose date of birth is a matter of dispute, has been one of the most successful artists of the past two-and-a-half decades, with more than 200 million albums sold worldwide and five Grammy awards.
Mariah may have been the honouree but her tiny four-year-old tots were the ones who stole the show.
Both children clung to their mother as she appeared to play along and keep her composure.
Moroccan appeared especially attached, crying when nannies pulled him away from his mother's photo shoot.
