Ariana Grande almost falls, tears up during live ‘Thank U, Next’ performance

After releasing her incredible album "Sweetener" just a couple of months ago, Ariana Grande suddenly dropped her new song "thank u, next" out of nowhere recently - and now she's performed it for the first time ever on Ellen.

Ariana and her backup performers, Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx, channeled the 1996 film starring Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton in all-white ensembles.

Earlier in the routine, Ariana brilliantly recovered when she stumbled, quickly declaring "oh my god", before brushing off the incident and carrying on.

So half an hour before the latest episode of SNL started, Grande put her new single out into the world, and it nearly immediately became a meme to rival "me voting in 2016 vs.me voting today".

Despite giggling over a misstep that almost caused her to fall, Grande got choked up at one point during her performance, visibly holding back tears while singing about walking down the aisle with her mom someday.

While she didn't go into detail about what tore them apart, it appears that she has come to terms with their distant relationship. However, the singer's rep has now told ET Canada the release had nothing to do with the "One Last Time" hitmaker.

"One day I'll walk down the aisle / holdin" hands with my mama", she sang, her voice catching on the line, "I'll be thanking my dad / "Cause she grew from the drama". "I thought we were supposed to exit".

Ariana Grande fans are speculating whether the singer secretly released a whole album under a different identity.

She also shared her mindset in relation to the track, writing, "no drags.no shade. jus love, gratitude, acceptance, honesty, forgiveness. and growth".
