The week in pictures

In good vibrations, many an opera singer has tried to smash a wine glass with their pipes in the past.

But US songstress Mariah Carey became the most influential person on Twitter so far this year, when she used hers to crack open a bottle of white Burgundy over the weekend.

Carey posted a video on her Twitter account at the start of this week that showed her singing to a bottle of Drouhin white Burgundy fastened with a screwcap, which flew off when she hit the high note.

The singer’s video comes after a string of posts including the hashtag #bottletopchallenge have appeared online, where people all over the world have found increasingly creative ways to crack open their wine.

Carey’s attempt at the challenge has surpassed 1.5 million likes and 25 million views on Twitter since it was uploaded on Sunday, making it one of the most viral tweets of 2019.
