Ariana Grande Tears Up While Performing on 'Ellen'

Ariana Grande Tears Up While Performing on 'Ellen'

It seems Ariana Grande still has some tears left to cry. This Ellen performance was our first chance to get a glimpse at the 25-year-old artist after a harrowing few months where she ended an engagement and lost an ex to an accidental overdose. "Oh my god!" she screamed before quickly getting herself together and continuing the song. "Not long after, she laughed as she sang, "'Cause her name is Ari / And I'm so good with that".

Ariana's performance has a First Wives Club theme and she dressed up in all-white alongside her back-up singers (and song co-writers) Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx.

Grande - who had posted on her Instagram Stories earlier this week that she was watching the film - took inspiration from the final, iconic scene, which sees stars Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn, resplendent in white suits, belting out Lesley Gore's anthem to self-empowerment, You Don't Own Me.

Ariana Grande performed "thank u, next" for the first time on The Ellen Show. But while she was singing the bop on stage, she actually lost her balance and nearly fell during the performance, before recovering like a total pro. "He didn't find out about Ariana's song until later, and that didn't change what he said on 'Weekend Update'". "We were supposed to come down?"

But when Helus and a California Highway Patrol officer entered the bar about 11:20 p.m., gunshots were already piercing the room. Ron Helus was a 29-year veteran of the police force. "He didn't say anything, at least not that we could hear", Estron added.

"I thought we were supposed to exit", Grande says, apologizing for the mishap.

The host reassured her that it was fine. "We love you, we support you". Her performance was pre-taped on November 6, but instead of changing a thing, she embraced her fall with a sense of humor and let her fans see the original take in all of its imperfect glory.
