Mariah Carey Dazzles In Gravity-Defying, Cleavage-Busting Dress As She Performs At BET Honors Bash (PICS)

We have no idea how Mariah managed to avoid a wardrobe malfunction of epic proportions - we're assuming there was a LOT of boob tape involved, and possibly scaffolding - but despite looking like they were making a bid for freedom, her assets managed to stay in place. Just.
