Elton John And Mariah Carey Perform At Lavish Russian Wedding
For most people, one of these two superstar singers would make for a sensational wedding reception, but for Russian billionaire Valery Kogan’s granddaughter one was just not enough.
Kogan’s 19-year-old granddaughter Irene and her new husband were married in London over the weekend. Kogan made sure to make it a memorable one, paying Elton John and Mariah Carey $4.2 million to perform at the reception, according to TMZ.
The celebration, which took place at The Landmark hotel, lasted a reported 9 hours. (PHOTOS: Mariah Carey Forgoes Top, Shows Insane Amount Of Cleavage In London)
Elton John was first to perform and played 12 of his songs for the newlyweds. Mariah followed, and despite a recent disaster during her New Year’s Eve performance, she sounded pretty good.
