Mariah Carey stole the show at the World Music Awards scooping a phenomenal three prizes – and celebrated by having a pyjama party.
The sexy singer walked away with a trio of gongs, including Best Female Artist, Best R&B Artist and Female Entertainer of the Year, before sending pulses racing by wearing a tiny pair of hotpants during a blistering live performance.
Mariah was so thrilled at receiving the prestigious accolades she invited a gaggle of girl pals back to her Los Angeles home for a late night bash in their underwear.
A friend of the singer said: “Mariah was thrilled because a year ago she was being written off and people were saying her career was heading for the dumper.
“She celebrated by throwing a pyjama party for some friends at her home. Everyone had a great time and it carried on till 3am.”
Other big winners at the lavish ceremony, in Hollywood, included Destiny’s Child, who also picked up three awards, including Best Pop Group and Best Selling Female Group of All Time, and Eminem, who collected two accolades, including Best Pop/Rock Act.
Beyoncé, along with her Destiny’s Child band mates, opened the spectacular event and the sexy singer wowed fans by flashing her knickers during the racy performance.
