Ariana Grande Slips During 'thank u, next' Performance On Ellen

Ariana Grande Apologises To Ex Ricky Alvarez For His Line On ‘Thank U

The singer was looking gorgeous in white for a "First Wives' Club"-inspired performance of the viral track she released within an hour of the return of "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend".

After releasing her incredible album "Sweetener" just a couple of months ago, Ariana Grande suddenly dropped her new song "thank u, next" out of nowhere recently - and now she's performed it for the first time ever on Ellen. The song begins, "Thought I'd end up with Sean / But he wasn't a match / Wrote some songs about Ricky / Now I listen and laugh / Even nearly got married / And for Pete, I'm so thankful / Wish I could say "thank you" to Malcolm / 'Cause he was an angel".

As for the performance, it was definitely live as she almost took a faceplant trying to step down from a chair on the wedding reception-inspired set. One taught me love, one taught me patience, and one taught me pain'.

The tune, which namechecks several of her famous exes, including former fiance, Pete Davidson, the late Mac Miller, Big Sean, and Ricky Alvarez, is a touching tribute to the past men in her life and to the woman she's become as a result.

The tracks include Cadillac and Champagne, thought to be versions of Ariana's previously unreleased songs. "Holding hands with my mama", she sang, through tears.

The lyrics caused the singer to get a bit choked up, recalling her parents' relationship drama, but once again, she managed to make it through, to a strong finish, which featured her busting out some dance moves before exiting up the stairs of the studio. DeGeneres responds: "It's totally fine, we're happy that you came back". And to that we say, thank u, next.
