Ariana Grande was noticed by Mark Hamill on Saturday (Nov. 10) after the Star Wars Actor unknowingly posted the titular lyrics of her current Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, "Thank U, Next." She shook up the galaxy a little on Tuesday (Nov. 13) after Star Trek star George Takei responded to Hamill’s tweet praising her singer skills with his own kind words on Sunday (Nov. 11).   

“Her popularity is well-earned, @HamillHimself,” the man best known for playing helmsman Sulu tweeted. “She has what feels like the voice of an angel, that @ArianaGrande. One that could fill the vast heavens.”    

Billboard’s Woman of the Year responded with hearts on Tuesday, later adding, “hello i am crying" and “sulu ...... likes my voice i ....... have to go.”
