However, unlike most recipients, Carey didn't give a speech prior to the ceremony even when prompted by her 'Precious' director Lee Daniels, and looked nervous about putting her hands in the cement.

When asked about her reticence, she replied:

"Well it's not the most.... We don't do this every day. It's a huge honor and I don't even know how to express it."

Carey was accompanied to the ceremony by reported boyfriend Bryan Tanaka who sat in the audience while the event took place.
