Mariah Carey gave fans more than they were expecting after a 'wardrobe accident' exposed her breasts.

But fans only managed a quick glimpse before organisers threw the power switch - plunging the stage into darkness.

According to MTV news Carey then jokingly told the audience: "Someone bring me a jacket or the show's off, we all know how quickly these images can spread around the world."

Carey, who was performing in Karlsruhe, Germany, ran backstage under cover of darkness with her hands holding her clothing in place to have the problem fixed before continuing the concert.
