Mariah Carey shares her favorite Billboard Music Awards moment, her upcoming Merry Christmas One and All tour, how she felt when her hit “Vision of Love” became her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and more at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards Presented by Marriott Bonvoy.
What is your favorite BBMAs memory?
Okay, well my favorite BBMAs memory is when I won Artist of the Decade and I gave this kind of like off the cuff speech that it was just one of my favorite times at any award show anywhere ever. That was a good one.
What can fans expect from your upcoming tour?
I’m mainly performing holiday songs, but I am also performing non-holiday songs because we have to be festive all throughout the year. So I’m excited. I got rehearsal tomorrow and everybody’s getting ready and we’re off.
“Vision of Love” was your first #1 on the Hot 100. Do you remember when it went to #1 and how did you celebrate?
Yes, “Vision of Love” was my first No. 1 on the Hot 100. And I think I didn’t really understand the magnitude of that. At that time. I’m pretty sure I celebrated. It’s a little bit blurry. Yeah, it was a it was an amazing moment because I never thought that song would be a big hit at all. That was not to me that wasn’t what was popular. That’s just something very different. And so yay, “Vision of Love.”
