The powerhouse vocalist wore a Marilyn Monroe-worthy strapless pink gown with thick diamond necklace and fur draped over her arms, while singing a stripped-down version of the sultry track backed only by a piano and clouds of smoke. (Well, the instrumentation was stripped-down, but Grande's vocals were full-force.) Jason Robert Brown, the Tony-winning composer behind Grande's Broadway debut in the musical 13, played piano for Grande.
