Taking to Twitter to share details of her faux pas, Mariah revealed that she begged for forgiveness when Meryl returned to her table only to find that her seat was now occupied.

The singer wrote: “Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break.. took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg.

“Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat…

“(me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me!!!

“(MERYL STREEP) You can take my seat any time! [sic]”

Mariah was at the ceremony as she was nominated for the Best Original Song award alongside Marc Shaiman for the title song of ‘The Star’.

The mother-of-two lost out to Keala Settle’s ‘This Is Me’ from The Greatest Showman, but Mariah was gracious in her loss, tweeting: “Congratulations ‘This Is Me’!
