Airing yesterday (22nd) on the Japanese program SMAPxSMAP, Ariana Grande can be seen in a new performance – recorded at the last visit to the country – performing a medley of her hits “Baby I” and “Problem”. Check out the video below!
Ariana Grande has attended the White House’s annual Easter fundraiser “Easter Egg Roll” in Washington, DC. She was onstage 3 times to perform 3 songs each. She sang Right There with Big Sean, Piano, and The Way. She has also met her celebrity crush Jim Carrey where she was full of tears.

Leaving Washington, DC
It’s been a while since Arianators were treated to a live performance from the rising songstress, but she’s finally back! At last night’s MTV Artists to Watch at the House of Blues in L.A., Ariana Grande surprised the audience by coming out during YouTube star (and American Idolalum) Tori Kelly’s cover of Ariana’s own song, “Right There.”

“I’ve been messing around with [this song] lately and I really, really, really like it. I’m a huge fan of this person and she’s become a really good friend of mine.”
– Tori Kelly
Then the 21-year-old breaks into an acoustic version of Ariana’s hit single, and we must say, she does it justice! This girl’s got the goods.
As if that weren’t enough of a crowd-pleaser already, midway through the catchy tune, Miss Ariana herself walks out! The audience went wild at the duet — and who could blame ‘em? These two young powerhouses sound fantastic together, and hopefully it won’t be a one-time deal. We need more of this, ladies!
Tori’s been on the brink for a while now, having landed her first record deal at 12 — though industry drama caused things to fall through. She’s gained a major following online through her impressive YouTube covers(check out her version of Michael Jackson’s “PYT,” and Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie”). She’s now under Scooter Braun’s management (just like Ariana!) and is working on her album with acts like Ed Sheeran and Pharrell. We predict big things ahead for this talented artist.
Are you loving this duet as much as we are? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Ariana Grande performed on Dick Clark’s New Years Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014 in at Time Square in New York City.
Her performance was pre-recorded, so she didn’t perform live because she’s in Japan. She performed her 2 hit songs The Way and Right There with Mac Miller and Big Sean joining her.
Check out the UHQ photos and videos of the performance below!

RIGHT THERE (with Big Sean)
Ariana held in Los Angeles, California, her second performance at Jingle Ball festival, sponsored by KIIS-FM radio. Even sick with technical problems at the time of presentation, she sang 4 songs (“Right There”, “Honeymoon Avenue”, “Last Christmas” and “The Way”) without problems. Ariana Grande also surprised the audience visually, using her hair.
The star did not attend the Red Carpet for being sick, and had a small problem with her microphone during a performance of “Right There”; she got off much of the performance and only called at the end. The singer apologized for the problem and later had to apologize for a misunderstanding.
When posting the phrase “At least I sang it live,” Ariana upset some fans of the singer Selena Gomez, who understood the phrase as an indirect to Selena that used playback tracks in her performance. But it was all a misunderstood phrase, since Ariana was not referring to Selena.
Ohhh jesus. I wasn’t throwing shade AT ALL I didn’t even see anyone else’s set. I was sick backstage that’s why I didn’t even do the carpet.

I was just cracking a joke cause my mic was off. Everyone had tech difficulties. Sorry if it was taken the wrong way it wasn’t my intention!
