If you weren’t already convinced that Ariana Grande does the best impressions EVER, maybe this will win you over. In a deleted scene from her appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live,’ the singer impersonates actress Judy Garland…and it’s literal perfection. Check it out!
Okay, Ariana Grande, 22, is officially the queen of impressions. She mimicked some of the biggest and most powerful singers while hosting Saturday Night Live on March 12, but it turns out she had even more tricks up her sleeve — they just didn’t make it into the episode. You HAVE to watch her impersonating Judy Garland in this deleted scene!
Judy was a legendary actress, known for her vaudeville style, who you probably recognize as Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz, and Ariana literally sounds JUST like her in this clip! The sketch takes place on a spaceship, and not only does Ari nail Judy’s vocals…she also has her talking voice down pat. It’s seriously amazing!
Ariana had actually fallen off the radar a bit before making this epic appearance on SNL, but this totally made us fall back in love with her all over again. In another skit poking fun at the music app Tidal, the 22-year-old played a nerdy intern who had to save the streaming service by stepping in to sing in the voices of famous artists when the app was down.
She took on big voices like Celine Dion and Whitney Houston, while also adding her own version of autotune to Rihanna and Britney Spears‘ vocals, and the result was epic. Can you believe how much she sounds like them!? Stream Ariana’s music completely unlimited and ad-free RIGHT HERE.
The greatest moment of the night, though, was probably when she played Jennifer Lawrence, 26, in a Family Feud skit. She totally nailed the A-lister’s deep, nonchalant voice and we literally watched it over and over. Slay, girl…slay!
Are you a fan of Ariana’s impressions, HollywoodLifers? Or do you think she overdoes it?
