Ariana Grande isn't ideal, but she's so good with that! 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.
Ariana Grande performed her latest single "thank u, next" for the first time on Ellen and her "First Wives Club" dance routine saw her nearly fall down.
Ariana also performed her current single "Breathin'" during the episode.
Despite giggling over a misstep that almost caused her to fall, Grande got choked up at one point during her performance, visibly holding back tears while singing about walking down the aisle with her mom someday.
Apparently Pete Davidson's statement on their split on Saturday Night Live didn't blindside Ariana Grande because she knew he would bring it up.
The trio's choreography channeled Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton's performance of "You Don't Own Me" in the 1996 movie, which follows a trio of divorcées seeking revenge on their ex-husbands.
The tracks include Cadillac and Champagne, thought to be versions of Ariana's previously unreleased songs.
"I thought we were supposed to exit", She laughed. DeGeneres responds: "It's totally fine, we're happy that you came back".
We loved how she and her girls simply marched up the stairs and off the set at the end of the number giving great attitude and girl power, but DeGeneres was on the stage waiting to chat with her.
