Watch Ariana & Mika’s latest performance of their catchy hit here!
When it comes to winning Dancing with the Stars, skill is only part of the equation; you also have to be “popular” with the viewers at home — so it’s only fitting that Ariana Grande and Mika paid the ABC competition show a visit Oct. 21 to perform a song of the same name!
The impossibly adorable duo lightened the mood on the otherwise tense episode — as if any episode of this show isn’t tense — with a bubbly performance of their song, which samples “Popular” from the Broadway musical Wicked.
A track on Mika’s third studio album The Origin of Love, “Popular Song” originally featured vocals by Priscilla Renea, but she was eventually replaced by Ariana to make the song more marketable in the United States.
Ariana looked adorable in a navy sweater and very short black skirt. Her long legs were covered with black tights. She wore sparkly gold eyeshadow and wore her hair half up in her signature curls. She also rocked a cat ear headband. She looked gorgeous and happy on stage.
Mika looked sharp in a blue suit with a black skinny tie and white shirt. They make a great pair and sounded so good together.
