Last week, Mariah Carey tweeted that she dislocated her shoulder and teased that her sling would be “fashionable.”

Thanks all for the well wishes <3 Still in a lot of pain - cracked rib, fractured shoulder, bruises everywhere, but the show must go on. — Mariah Carey (@MariahCarey) July 11, 2013
She wasn’t joking.
On Saturday, Carey took the stage at the Major League Baseball All-Star Charity Concert at Central Park, where she performed with the New York Philharmonic.
Throughout her performance, Carey had THREE sling changes.
She started with this white fluffy number:
And then a team of highly-trained sling changers switched out the fluffy “winter wonderland” style …
For this badazzled sling that perfectly matched her dress.
With a dress change clearly came a sling change. This sling was made fully of long, black feathers.
But with or without the dislocated shoulder wrapped in feathers, gems or white fluff, Mariah still rocked Central Park.
