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

Ariana Grande Taps Normani for Sweetener Tour Support

Ariana Grande Taps Normani for Sweetener Tour Support

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.

Adding fuel to the fire, the biography of Zandhr on Spotify appears in the upside down font which Ariana Grande has used on her most recent album campaign. The "God Is A Woman" hitmaker, 25, performed her breakup anthem, "Thank U, Next" for the first time on the November 7 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Fortunately, Ariana's friends Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx - both of whom are co-writers of the track - were serving as her backing singers, and quickly managed to make her laugh, helping her complete the performance.

Grande may have only released Sweetener in August but fans suggested she could have dropped another LP under the name Zandhr.

Though the Ellen performance mostly goes off without a hitch, Grande and her companions mistakenly dance through the Ellen audience toward the studio exit when the song concludes.

In addition to the trio's ensembles, the stage was outfitted as if for a wedding reception, with tables, chairs and full-on centerpieces all in white. It's one thing to sing the words, "I'm so fucking grateful for my ex", and it's another to really look like you mean them.

"One day I'll walk down the aisle holding hands with my mama/I'll be thanking my dad, 'cause she grew from the drama", Grande, 25, sang between sobs.

Then just two weeks ago her engagement to SNL comedian Pete Davidson was called off.

Host DeGeneres joked about Grande leaving, prompting her to return in a amusing confused moment.

"Yeah, you left me!" Oh my bad, I thought we were supposed to exit at the top.
