Mariah Carey, whose opening show was hampered by technical difficulties, appeared to make an extra effort on Saturday night, performing songs not previously included in her two prior shows and making attempts to endear herself to the 15,000-strong crowd - at one point claiming she had taken a liking to VB.
"I figured I had a little Vegemite last time (I was here), so I'd have a splash," she told the crowd while holding up a can of Victoria's famed brew."I love Melbourne and it's about time I came back."
Carey also showed her generous side, providing VIP fantasy packages for staff from her hotel, the Park Hyatt.
She added a song Fly Like A Bird, which she didn't sing on the Gold Coast or in Sydney, and again introduced the audience to her 18-month-old twins Monroe and Moroccan.
