Mariah & Elton Perform For Russian Wedding

Mariah Carey and Elton John got hired for a wedding gig over the weekend … and it wasn’t cheap. The singers raked in $4.2 million after a Russian billionaire and Putin buddy named Valery Kogan footed the bill for his granddaughter’s wedding over the weekend in London. The astonishing nine-hour reception at The Landmark hotel featured Mimi dedicating “We Belong Together” to the new couple. The bride — 19-year-old Irene Kogan — and her hubby requested Mariah’s appearance. She was flown in from the U.S. Sir Elton John kicked things off with an impressive 12 song set. Mariah sounded significantly better than she did on New Year’s Eve.
