The singer was honored with the Woman of the Year award.
As Ariana Grande took the stage to accept the Woman of the Year award at this year's Billboard Women In Music event Thursday night (Dec. 6), the 25-year-old singer followed up a sassy performance of "thank u, next" with a very Ariana-like quip: "Thank you so much for coming to my Quinceañera, I appreciate it." Though it wasn't Grande's actual birthday, the rest of her speech served as sincere proof of the night's biggest honor -- whether she felt worthy of it or not.
After admitting that she felt "completely undeserving" of the Woman of the Year title, Grande went on to thank her team in a rather nervous fashion, suggesting that she'd forget everything she wanted to say because she was overwhelmed. But then something clicked as she began talking about the incredible year she's had as an artist.
