Ariana Grande's Full Performance of 'Thank U, Next' Is Here

Credit PA

With her newest song, the pop singer revisits her past romances with rapper Big Sean, dancer Ricky Alvarez, comedian Pete Davidson and rapper Mac Miller (who sadly passed away in September from a drug overdose), thanking each them for their role in helping her become the woman she is today.

There were some bumps and maybe even a few tears, but she persisted (and managed to find the fun), serving some on-point vocals as always.

She helped organize the One Love Manchester concert a year ago, raising more than US$23 million for victims of the Manchester bombing.

For the performance, Grande and her backup singers, Tayla Parx and Victoria Monet, who both helped her write "thank u, next", donned all-white outfits that gave off a clear bridal vibe. "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", she sings.

"One day I'll walk down the aisle / holdin" hands with my mama", she sang, her voice catching on the line, "I'll be thanking my dad / "Cause she grew from the drama". "Only wanna do it once, real bad / Gon" make that shit last / God forbid something happens / Least this song is a smash".

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.

"Thank you for being here". You've had a rough year. "He didn't find out about Ariana's song until later, and that didn't change what he said on 'Weekend Update'".

We loved how she and her girls simply marched up the stairs and off the set at the end of the number giving great attitude and girl power, but DeGeneres was on the stage waiting to chat with her.

In the wake of his death, Ariana confirmed her split from ex-fiance Pete in October - four months after announcing their engagement. "He is supposed to be here".

Watch the entire performance above, then maybe go see if The First Wives Club is on Hulu or something?
