Mariah Carey has had a big week, and still has a BIG night ahead! If you can believe it, our resident queen of Christmas music turned 50 years old on March 27th. She shared her Friday celebration via social media as she made the first slice into a homemade chocolate cake, surrounded by her children. The kiddos, fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe, most likely handled the candles that read "1" and "2" - Mo took it as a compliment though, as she hashtagged herself as "eternally 12."

"Spent 3.27 at home with my family and virtually with fans and friends from all over the world," Carey wrote on Saturday. "Thank you for all the love 🦋❤️🥳 #eternally12."

Her celebri-friends immediately flooded the comment section.

"Happy Birthday , you amazing woman! 💖✨🦋," The Morning Show star Reese Witherspoon said.

"Happy Birthday Beautiful 💕💕💕💕💕," hotel heiress Paris Hilton replied. Wonder if her she's still living 'The Simple Life?'

"Love you and sending you all the love!" famed choreographer Bobby Newberry commented. "Happy anniversary #eternally12 💕🦋💕🦋"

But, this posting isn't Mariah's only star-studded event this weekend.

Even though the iHeartRadio Music Awards were slated for this evening (and canned due to the coronavirus pandemic), the media giant has replaced their time slot with something very special. Mariah Carey was one of the first confirmed to perform on FOX Presents the iHeart Living Room Concert for America, an intimate showcase of our country's favorite entertainers - live from the comfort of their own homes.

An executive from iHeart told FOX News about his time on the phone with Carey.

"Mariah Carey's a real person, too," Tom Poleman said last week. Another fellow exec echoed this statement.

“When she [was] talking to us about doing it, she said, ‘I’m gonna have to keep the door open, because I have to keep an eye on the kids,'" iHeart Media president of entertainment John Sykes John Sykes recalled.

Carey will be joined by artists such as Billie Eilish, Lady Gaga, Sam Smith, and the Backstreet Boys. Speaking of the 'Boys,' the lifelong crooners were also among the early responders to lend their voice to tonight's big event.

And speaking of first responders, the band affirms that's what tonight is all about.

"We’re doing an at home performance on @foxtv this Sunday alongside some talented and inspiring artists!" They previously announced via Twitter. "Excited to be part of this @iHeartRadio Living Room Concert for America to benefit medical workers during this difficult time 🙏🏻."

Even though Mariah performing "Touch My Body" probably isn't the best choice of song rn, we're sure EVERYONE is set to stun on screen tonight.

'FOX Presents the iHeartLiving Room Concert for America' airs live on Sunday at 9pm EDT/6pm PDT via all iHeartMedia radio stations and FOX platforms.
