Ariana Grande isn't letting anxiety hold her back.

Hours after the songstress posted a selfie of herself in emerald green makeup, she took the stage to perform a Broadway classic, "The Wizard and I." The tune is part of NBC's A Very Wicked Halloween special in celebration of the iconic show's 15th anniversary. 

In a fan Twitter video, the pop star is seen belting the melody to a cheering crowd. The full performance will air Oct. 29 at 10 p.m. EST/PST on NBC.

"can't believe i almost let my anxiety ruin this for me today," she wrote in her Instagram story, days after her split from fiance Pete Davidson. "not today satan! not tomorrow or the next day either not no more u can suck my big green d---."

"finna sing my heart out and be a big walking vessel of love bye," she continued. She added to the day's excitement on social media by posting a photo with Idina Menzel, who originally played the role as Elphaba in Wicked the Musical on both Broadway and in the West End. "if y’all told me ab any of this fifteen years ago," Grande fangirled. See below.
