Mariah Carey Live-Premieres New Song During 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival

After completing the first leg of her "Butterfly Returns" Las Vegas residency, Mariah Carey returned to Sin City on Friday night (September 21) to dazzle our 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival with the live debut of her recent single, "GTFO," a string of her biggest hits and an explosion of gold confetti.

"You take my love for granted /You left me lost and disenchanted /Bulldozed my heart as if you planned it," Carey crooned mid-song, before repeating "How 'bout you get the f**k out?" during the savage hook. In case you haven't heard, "GTFO" serves as a buzz single, which hears Carey use her angelic falsetto to tell a former lover to, well, get the f**k out of her house. In short, it's the most Mariah Carey breakup anthem you will ever hear.

Elsewhere in her performance, Carey delivered signature hits like opening number "It's Like That," "Emotions" and "Always Be My Baby." During a hit-packed medley, the elusive chanteuse also strung together "Honey," "Shake It Off," "Obsessed," "#Beautiful" "I Know What You Want" and "Fantasy" Expect more from Carey when she unleashes "With You," the lead single from her new album, which is scheduled to drop on October 5. 

If you missed any of this year's iHeartRadio Music Festival, we've got you covered! Fans can re-live all of the best moments from the unforgettable weekend by tuning into a two-night television special, exclusively on The CW, on October 7th and October 8th from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET/PT.
