It's been a long time coming, but Mariah Carey will finally get a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

The star was elated to hear the news, and will finally be available to accept it. Turns out, Carey was given a star in 2007 but she wasn't available to receive it. But now she's open. Who wouldn't have taken time to get a star on the Walk of Fame? Whatever -- it's now time.

On Aug. 5, the award-winning singer will receive the 2,556th star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition to Carey, some of her industry friends will be on hand to say a few words. L.A. Reid, Lee Daniels, and Brett Ratner will be in attendance and have some speeches prepared for their long time friend as she receives the honor.
