We bow down to you, Ariana Grande! The singer played a game of Wheel Of Musical Impressions with Jimmy Fallon on Sept. 15, and absolutely nailed her impersonations of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Celine Dion. You have to watch this!
We knew Ariana Grande could sing — but did you know she can also belt it out in the voices of other famous artists?! During an appearance on The Tonight Show, the 22-year-old sang well-known songs while impersonating other female singers. It’s hilarious, but also totally spot-on. Watch here!
The Wheel of Musical Impressions is just one of Jimmy Fallon’s many fun games, but Ari was the perfect person to take it on. For her first spin, she had to sing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” in the voice of Britney Spears, and she nailed the nasally tone we’ve grown to know and love. Seemingly a little embarrassed for poking fun of The Queen, Ariana — whose latest album you can buy here — cut herself short a little on this one, but there was no stopping her when it came to her following impersonations!
Next, the wheel landed on Christina Aguilera and “Wheels On The Bus,” and let me just tell you — you’ve never heard this children’s song quite like this before! Ariana sounded just like Xtina, holding out long notes and adding in the necessary growls to over-exaggerate the song. It was SO epic!
Finally, the “Break Free” singer was tasked with belting out The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” as Celine Dion. She initially seemed unsure about whether or not she was getting the voice just right, but once she started singing, she couldn’t have been more spot-on! And, because Jimmy’s final spin had been to sing the same song, only as Sting, the duo teamed up for an amazing duet that we never want to stop watching.
Ariana Grande Announces New Single
It wasn’t all just fun and games during the appearance, though! Ariana also had some VERY exciting news to share with fans — her new single, “Focus,” is going to be released on Oct. 30! Okay, so that’s still a little far away, BUT Arianators can still support their girl right NOW, because she’s recently released her first fragrance, Ari by Ariana. So exciting!
