Ariana Grande Glows in Debut Performance Of 'Thank U, Next' On 'Ellen': Watch

Ariana Grande delivered a one-of-a-kind performance of her empowering new anthem "Thank U, Next" for The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (Nov. 7). 

Grande was joined by friends and collaborators Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx, and the trio rocked stunning all-white outfits in their own reinterpretation of the iconic 1996 movie The First Wives Club. 

With the stage set up as a wedding reception, the "God Is A Woman" singer wowed while wearing a beautiful lace suit and matching long boots.  

Rolling into the ballsy, name-dropping first verse, Grande's signature velvety vocals soared high as she confessed, "Thought I'd end up with Sean/ But he wasn't a match/ Wrote some songs about Ricky/ Now I listen and laugh/ Even almost got married/ And for Pete, I'm so thankful/ Wish I could say, 'thank you' to Malcolm/ 'Cause he was an angel."

Performing old-school choreography, the trio swirled and spun around the stage with synchronized moves as Grande's heavenly voice took over the room. 

For the second verse, Grande playfully got on top of a chair and almost slipped on her way down, voicing a cute, "Oh, my God!" Thankfully, Monet was quick to grab her before anything bad could happen.

As Grande sang her heart out to the dreamy beat, she exuded a natural glow that proved she has indeed found solace and healing in herself.  

Meanwhile, after an incredibly successful year and on the heels of her Billboard 200 chart-topping fourth album Sweetener, Ariana Grande has also been named Billboard’s 2018 Woman of the Year.
