Shortly after her nearly three-minute performance, Carey was presented with the Icon Award for lifelong achievement as a singer, songwriter.

The Icon Award was previously bestowed upon the likes of Janet Jackson, Cher, Celine Dion, and Prince.

To date, Carey is one of the biggest winners in award history. She has taken home a total of 15 Billboard Music Awards of her own.

But while the night was meant to be all about her, Carey couldn’t help but shout out her twins on her big day.

She wrote on Instagram earlier in the day:

“8 years of bliss Happy Birthday #DemKids”

Carey shares her twins with ex-husband, Nick Cannon, who thanked her for “the most amazing gifts ever,” their children.
