MTV brought Total Request Live back to Times Square on Wednesday, all because of pint-sized powerhouse Ariana Grande. The newly 21-year-old singer treated her fans to a new song (“Break Free”), Harry Potter trivia and an hour -plus of their girl giggling with her friends on live television.
One of the more colorful moments of the show came when Ariana stepped up to MTV’s Sway and his big wheel of fun. By pairing popular hits (“Love the Way You Lie,” “Super Bass,” “Dance (A$$)”) with various musical styles (Broadway, death metal, reggae, opera) Sway put Ariana and her mind-blowing musical chops to the test. Can she handle it? Eh, considering she’s collaborated with Mack Miller and Big Sean, and starred on Broadway when she was 15, a certain combination should be a piece of cake. See what happens when Ariana performs A$AP Rocky‘s “F–kin’ Problems” in the style of musical theater, in the video above.
This is far from the first time Ariana’s experimented with a more mature style. Check out some of her sexiest looks, below.
