Mariah Carey will travel to the World Music Awards on a £10,000 private flight.
The singer is appearing on UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' on Saturday night (08.11.08) so organisers have chartered the special plane to get her to the 20th annual ceremony in Monaco which takes place on Sunday (09.11.08).
Mariah will be joined by husband Nick Cannon on the journey which will see them lavishly treated.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "It'll be like a second honeymoon on board the jet for them. There'll be no expense spared for Mariah - lilies, mini-burgers, sparkling water and bundles of her favourite Hello Kitty toys as a present.
"Staff won't disturb them until Mariah calls, to ensure the love birds have the utmost privacy on the cosy flight."
Mariah has received 16 World Music Awards throughout her career - more than any other artist.
Her accolades include the Legend award and a special Millennium award for being the best-selling female recording artist of all time.
On this week's 'X Factor', Mariah will be mentoring the pop wannabes who will all have to interpret one of her hits.
The 38-year-old star will perform her latest single 'I Stay In Love', along with her classic hit 'Hero' with the contestants. 'The X Factor' finalists' charity version of the song is currently at number one in the UK singles chart.
Earlier this week, it was announced Lindsay Lohan has been axed from presenting the World Music Awards show after reportedly being angry she would have to co-host the night with 'Desperate Housewives' actress Jesse Metcalfe. She has since been replaced with Denise Richards.
