Fifty Shades Of Grey: Dakota Johnson Spotted Leaving The Gym As She Takes A Break From Filming

Mariah Carey didn’t waste the opportunity to show off her slimmed down figure at the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting pre-taping yesterday where she donned a number of sparkly gowns.

The former American Idol judge graced the stage at the Rockefeller Center in New York City yesterday where she undoubtedly wowed the audience with her festive classic ‘All I Want For Christmas’ and possibly another of her hit singles at the taping which will air in full on NBC in the US later today.

Mariah, 43, certainly made sure her outfits were as attention-grabbing as her powerhouse vocals, enjoying a series of outfit changes which included a very Christmassy ruby red strapless gown which she teamed with a white fur shawl while another quick change saw the diva dazzle in another white strapless fishtail gown which accentuated her curves and flaunted her ample cleavage.

While the ‘We Belong Together’ singer is known for pulling out all the stops on all occasions, Mariah appears to have even surprised herself by the lavish detailing from the stage props to her wardrobe choices, telling fans on Instagram: “I know it’s a lil’ over the top lol #rockefellercenter #Christmastreelight.”

Perhaps Mariah felt right at home as this isn’t her first year taking part in the annual taping having previously headlined in 2010 and 2012. Joining Mariah on the bill are Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Ariana Grande, Goo Goo Dolls, Jewel, Toni Braxton and Babyface, who was spotted recording their performances earlier today.

The festive season is certainly upon us with several stars taking part in Christmas-related shows including the Dallas Jingle Ball which saw Ariana perform alongside Selena Gomez and Austin Mahone, while the CMA Country Christmas special aired earlier this week.
