Ariana Grande Chokes Up During Performance on 'Ellen'

The 25-year-old singer gave the debut performance of her new song "thank u, next" and she also performed her hit song "Breathin'" on television for the first time.

Grande chose to channel the classic musical number from "The First Wives Club", wearing bridal white alongside her two backup singers to resemble the film's stars Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Dianne Keaton.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have been broken up for less than a month, but the singer seems to have already moved into the acceptance phase of the grieving process.

"Oh, my god!" Grande shouted as she recovered from the fall, then nearly seamlessly continued performing.

The ladies danced around to the tune on the stage, which was set up to look like a wedding reception. "Holding hands with my mama", she sang, through tears. She recovered like a champ, though, laughing off the moment while continuing to sing, like it was no big deal.

What we love most about this video is that Ariana could have totally redone the whole thing, but chose not to.

Not surprisingly, she elides the song's chorus "I'm so f-ing grateful for my ex" to "I'm so, I'm so grateful" on "Ellen".

In a statement Billboard's vice-president of content Ross Scarano says Grande "consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isn't hospitable to that sort of strength in young women". Pete Davidson, who until very recently was Grande's fiancé, had made a joke about their breakup on an SNL preview, and Grande didn't appreciate it.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Grande dropped "Thank U, Next" just this past weekend.

"I thought we were supposed to exit!"

"Yeah, you left me!"
