Ariana killed it on ‘X-Factor’ Australia on Sept. 7! The songstress took the stage to perform three of her biggest hits and received a standing ovation from audience as well as the judges. Watch it here.
Ariana Grande, 21, began her set with Billboard topper, “Problem.” Stepping out in a gold, skirted leotard and thigh-high boots (of course), and wore a simple pair of gold studs and a red lip. As per usual, she wore her hair in her signature high ponytail. However, we can’t stop talking about her performance!
Ariana Grande’s ‘X Factor’ Australia Performance
The former Nickelodeon actress didn’t cease to awe as she joined in her back up dancers’ routines, reminding us why she’s a triple threat, and got up close and personal with some fans in the audience. Soon after, she became a worldwide trending topic.
Singing her part of “Bang Bang” next, Ariana walked right up to the judges tables and had them dancing in their seats, following with Electropop number “Break Free.” At this point, it’s clear that her choice outfit may have not been the soundest decision. Ariana spent a majority of the remainder of the song tugging the top of her leotard to prevent any slips! However, the pop princess ended on a killer note without any wardrobe malfunctions!
Ariana Grande Exhausted & Adorable
After the performance Ariana admitted her feet were exhausted after the power-packed act. Host, Luke Jacobz, asked her what it was like working with Aussie singer Iggy Azalea, to which she gushed, “Iggy is amazing! I love her so much!”
She also had some words of advise for the show’s contestants, including, “Keep your family and your friends close.”
Watch the whole routine, and tell us what you think!
