Ariana Grande joined the likes of Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. The 22-year-old singer certainly stepped up to the challenge of doing double duty. She absolutely slayed all night long, especially when her vocals were utilized.
Grande previously displayed her prowess when it came to impersonating Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears on The Tonight Show. On SNL, she expanded her repertoire to include Whitney Houston, Rihanna and Shakira. Ariana channeled her fellow divas perfectly during the Tidal skit.
Another personal favorite sketch featured Ariana as a sassy Maria Von Trapp from Sound of Music. If the nuns thought Julia Andrews was a problem, they’ll never figure out how to solve a problem like this Maria.
As musical guest, Grande debuted a new track “Be Alright,” along with performing “Dangerous Woman” for the first time. She was pitch perfect during both performances. I’m actually quite a fan of “Be Alright.” That’s a future smash for sure. The voguing choreo was a nice little throwback. Check out some of the highlights from last night below.
