The holidays are always taken to another level with the presence of Mariah Carey. The singer dropped her latest studio album Caution in time for the festivities. Carey offered her first televised performance in honor of her new release on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show with her collaborator Ty Dolla Sign.

The pair performed their duet "The Distance" with a live band on the late night program along with dancers. Their number opened to a short step routine embodied by a crew of young men. They make way for the glamorous songstress promptly, revealing Mariah in a sequenced mini dress. Her accentuated curves are held steady as she delivers her lines with precise vocals, unhindered by a complex choreography. Her presence alone exuded the kind of strength that could hold an audience's attention without artifice.

Carey's career is finding new heights with her latest release in addition to the success of a past offering. Her album Glitter rose to the top of the charts on iTunes, much to her surprise. The support of her fans, whom she calls her lambs, is growing strong and will likely elevate Caution and cement the new album as one more collection hits for the R&B icon.
