Set List: Mariah Carey Performs Them All in Las Vegas

Word is that Mariah Carey has pulled off what seemed to be the impossible in recent years, an entertaining show with her vocals right on the mark.

Carey is currently in the middle of her Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace with a show that accomplishes something else that few artists have ever attempted, telling her history by performing every single number 1 in her career in chronological order.

This isn't some list of number 1's pulled together via technicality (i.e., number 1 on the Adult Pop Chart, number 1 in the Barbados). These are Carey's legitimate eighteen number 1's on the Hot 100, the most ever by a female artist and tied with Elvis Presley on the all-time list, just two chart toppers behind the Beatles.

The only song that doesn't fall into the number 1's list is her current single, Infinity, which she performs as an encore and, let's face it, who could blame her for trying to go for number 19?
