Mariah Carey Paid $4 Million To Perform On NYE TOPICS:Happy New YearMariah Carey Posted By: King October 17, 2015 Mariah Carey is going to be having a very happy New Year indeed. She has signed a $4 Million (£2.5 Million) deal to perform at Copacabana in Brazil on NYE. $4,000,000 for a few hours work! Not bad. I like Mariah, and think she deserves over a million, but maybe four is a bit much.
