The 25-year-old pop star gives the first performance of her new breakup anthem “thank u, next” for the crowd, channeling the hit 1996 film “First Wives Club” for her all-white girl group ensembles with pals, Tayla Parx and Victoria Monet.
The ladies danced around to the tune on the stage, which was set up to look like a wedding reception.
At one point, Grande stood up on a chair, bopping to her song in white heeled boots, but when she stepped down, she stumbled and fell, exclaiming, “Oh my god!”
The moment gave her a slight case of the giggles as she went into the next verse, but she powered through.
The song got particularly emotional for Grande during a verse about her parents.
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.
