Ariana Grande Stuns With ‘Problem’ At ‘DWTS’ Season 18 Finale

Tue, May 20, 2014 10:30pm EST by 13 Comments

‘Dancing With The Stars’ pulled out all the stops for their 18th season finale, with an incredible performance from Ariana Grande, but where was Iggy Azalea to perform ‘Problem’ right along with her?

The Season 18 finale of Dancing With The Stars on May 20 was a totally can’t-miss event — not only did the ridiculously popular reality competition series crown its 18th winner of the mirror ball trophy, but Ariana Grande stopped by to perform her hit song “Problem”but everyone was shocked that Iggy Azalea wasn’t there! First, Iggy performed her hit song “Fancy” with Charli XCX but she had major sound difficulties – maybe that’s why she didn’t opt to sing with Ariana? Read on for all the details!

Ariana Grande Performs ‘Problem’ On ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Finale

Iggy hit the stage before Ariana to perform her hit song “Fancy”, but she was having super weird technical difficulties. Her earpiece seemed to cease functioning, which made it impossible for her to sing for the first few seconds — she even stopped to apologize as the music was playing because she couldn’t hear anything! However, both she and Charli XCX were able to bring it home in the end. Who doesn’t love “Fancy”?

‘DWTS’ Recap: [SPOILER] Wins ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season 18

During Ariana’s performance of “Problem”, she looked as sexy as ever, but she traded in her signature ’60s-style minidress for a pair of… well, ’60s-style high-waisted pants and a crop top. She accessorized the look with a pair of sky-high heels and a minimal beauty look that served to accentuate her natural beauty. We’re obsessed with her retro fashion!

We were just shocked when Iggy didn’t step in to rap her verse during Ariana’s “Problem” — could she have been annoyed by the various technical difficulties? Or was she not slated to perform with Ariana that night after all? It would’ve been super strange for her to not be on the roster, however — at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, these same three ladies hit the stage to perform these same two songs, but Iggy joined Ariana onstage on May 18 to flesh out which is surely about to be one of the hottest songs of the summer.

Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’ The Fastest-Selling Single In iTunes History

The performances from these lovely ladies definitely mirrors their appearances at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, where Iggy first sang “Fancy” with Charli XCX and then was brought back onstage in the middle of Ariana’s “Problem” for her rap verse. However, we just wish that an exact repeat of that night had happened on the DWTS finale! We’re sure that Arianators were disappointed, because they just love seeing Ariana and Iggy take the stage together for Ariana’s massive hit song!

Ariana has been hustling like nobody’s business to promote “Problem” — she first performed it live at the Radio Disney Music Awards on April 27, and then subsequently performed it at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, before performing it at the 2014 BBMAs. “Problem” broke an iTunes record by being the fastest-selling single in iTunes history, nabbing the top spot in under 40 minutes.

What did you think of their performances, HollywoodLifers? Are “Fancy” and “Problem” going to be stuck in your head for the remainder of your lifetime? Were Iggy’s technical difficulties totally strange? Let us know!
