Ariana Grande Knew Pete Davidson Would Mention Her On ‘SNL’

Billboard has named American singer Ariana Grande its Woman of the Year for 2018

The 25-year-old pop star is set to debut the first televised performance of her new single "thank u, next" on Wednesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she'll be joined by fellow singers Tayla Parx and Victoria Monet for an homage to the 1996 film The First Wives Club starring Bette Midler, Diane Keaton, and Goldie Hawn.

Midway through the song, she climbed on top of a chair and stumbled as she stepped down from it, but she literally laughed it off, breaking up the verse with an "Oh my god" and laughing during a couple of the following lines. One taught me love, one taught me patience, and one taught me pain'.

"This one gon" last / "Cause her name is Ari / And I'm so good with that", she sang without missing a note, adding a self-deprecating chuckle. "He didn't find out about Ariana's song until later, and that didn't change what he said on 'Weekend Update'". The trio eventually made their way through the audience before exiting from the back. That was fantastic! That was awesome.
