Ariana Grande Sings "thank u, next" & Trips On Her Heels On 'Ellen'

Ariana Grande Sings

The full video of Ariana Grande performing her new song "thank u, next" for the first time has arrived!

Ariana Grande kept it very real during her Wednesday performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show!

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. They performed in front of white tables topped with flowers and a wedding cake, just like the movie's final scene in which the ladies sing, "You Don't Own Me".

Ariana is now working on her next album, reportedly titled thank u, next, which follows August's Sweetener.

Ariana's dance routine was a tribute to the classic Hollywood film "First Wives Club", however Ari's chair stunt saw her stumble and nearly fall to the ground, as you can see in the video above.


Grande's choice of reference (including wearing outfits similar to those worn by the aforementioned actresses in the film) is apt, given that the lyrical content of the new single sees her thanking her exes - namely Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, Pete Davidson, and the late Mac Miller - for teaching her lessons about life and love.

The song got particularly emotional for Grande during a verse about her parents.

The tracks included Cadillac and Champagne, thought to be versions of Ariana's previously unreleased songs. She has reached the celebrity realm where she can fuck up and it makes us like her more. "Not long after, she laughed as she sang, "'Cause her name is Ari / And I'm so good with that". She called it "far from a diss track" and proclaimed it was "the opposite".

On today's episode of Ellen, Grande performed the song live for the first time.
