Mariah Carey surprised her fans on Jimmy Fallon.

Mariah and Jimmy got their prank on last night.

On last night’s episode of “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” some may-jah diva prankery was afoot! Dozens of devoted Lambs were herded backstage to listen to a recording of Mariah Carey‘s new single, “The Art Of Letting Go.” Moments later, however, Ms. Carey appeared from behind a rando door to reveal that she was actually singing the track herself all along! Needless to say, this shocker nearly sent her fans to the point of hysteria!

At least now we know how best to react to her presence should we ever be so blessed!
