Whew! Ariana Grande had quite the hectic night on ‘Saturday Night Live’ pulling double duty as host and performer, but her opening monologue totally had us wanting more with a hilarious song and dance number asking what will her next scandal be?
Arianators rejoice! Ariana Grande, 22, is back and better than ever by bringing both her singing and acting chops to the stages of Saturday Night Live March 12. We got to see all sides of Ariana, starting out with her hilarious opening monologue about how she wants a REAL adult scandal and is seeking something more salacious that licking doughnuts.
Ari took the stage for her opening monologue saying, “It’s been a dream of mine to be on this stage ever since I was a little girl which was two months ago. I’ve been singing and acting since I was eight. I started on my career on kids TV doing Nickelodeon” before Kenan Thompson poked in to say “I’ve been on the show 13 damn years and people still ask me where’s Kel?” harking back to his days on the network.
Ariana continued, “It can be tough growing up in show business…..I got caught licking a doughnut I didn’t pay for, yes it was childish and stupid. I’ve learned that It’s really time to grown up and I’m in a place where I’m really ready to be caught in an adult scandal. A real scandal something to take my career to the next level. What will me scandal be?” before breaking into a song and dance number about it.
She then launched into a song about what would her scandal be, asking about everything from “Is that botox in her butt or in her face?” to if she got caught lighting up a smoke in first class on an airplane. It was priceless!
She’s definitely trying to go for a more adult image and she’s totally pulled that off with some hilarious skits on the show. After all, her last big acting gig was on Scream Queens and before that she was a Nickelodeon star on Sam & Cat. She definitely wants us to know she’s not a Nick kid anymore!

It was a big night for Ariana the singer, debuting two new songs off her upcoming album Dangerous Woman, the first is the title track as well as the more uptempo “Be Alright.” We’ve been waiting with fingers crossed that the songs off her third album would be as great her work on My Everything, and she proved on SNL she’s back and bigger than ever!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Ariana on Saturday Night Live? Was she as funny as you hoped?
