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

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:

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.
