Ariana Grande Recruits Help For Majestically Choreographed 'Thank U, Next' TV Debut

On Saturday night, in a masterful bit of pop-cultural tabloid-manipulating theatre, Ariana Grande released her new single "thank u, next," a sort of affectionate kiss-off to her various famous exes.

Dressed in white, the 25-year-old stayed on a "First Wives Club" theme as she and her dancers performed on stage, which resembled a wedding reception. 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".

At one point, she climbed on top of a chair and almost fell on her way down.

However others felt they could relate to her visual depiction of anxiety, including shots of a cloud encompassing her head, Ariana walking in slow motion through a fast-moving room, and then walking through a frozen room.

The "God Is A Woman" star absolutely nails her performance on Ellen and even bursts into laughter at various points during it, giving the whole thing a really light-hearted feel as she sings about her past relationships. "Not long after, she laughed as she sang, "'Cause her name is Ari / And I'm so good with that".

Adding fuel to the fire, the biography of Zandhr on Spotify appears in the upside down font which Ariana Grande has used on her most recent album campaign. "We love you, we support you". Throughout the rest of the performance, she keeps fighting back giggles.

"I thought we were supposed to exit", Grande says, apologizing for the mishap.
