MARIAH Carey is confirmed to perform at Brighton Pride later this year.
The Sun exclusively revealed the superstar was in talks to headline the event on August 1 last month and now insiders say she’s signed on the dotted line.
Mariah, 49, is following in the footsteps of big name stars who’ve sung there, including Britney Spears and Kylie Minogue.
A source said: “Mariah confirming for Brighton Pride is a huge coup for organisers who’ve been working on this deal for months.
“It’s taken a lot of negotiation but Mariah’s people have signed her up on a six figure deal.
“The organisers are so excited about having her there. She’s a huge draw and it’s going to be one hell of a performance.”
In January, music insiders revealed Mariah was the front runner to be the headline act at Brighton Pride.
However they told The Sun there were certain stipulations attached to the deal, including a shorter set list.
The insider said: “It won’t be a long set like the ones which Britney or Kylie have done.
“It seems like Mariah will do about 45 minutes on stage, despite being paid a six-figure fee.”
