A few months ago, Ariana Grande fell hard for Pete Davidson.
Then, this week on Ellen, Ariana Grande nearly fell hard while singing about Pete Davidson.
The beloved pop star took to the aforementioned talk show host’s stage on Wednesday morning in order to sing, for the first time in front of actual people, the new tune “Thank U, Next.”
This single has received plenty of attention of late because it was written about multiple ex-boyfriend of Grande’s, including Davidson, to whom she was engaged for most of the summer.
It was also released just a short time before Davidson commented on the couple’s break-up during a segment on Weekend Update just a few days ago.
Decked out in all white while belting out the anthem alongside friends Tayla Parx and Victoria Monet, Grande may have been taking a slight jab at Davidson by making it look like she was at a wedding.
Then, she stepped up on a chair, sang a bit more, stepped down… stumbled and nearly crashed to the floor.
“Oh my God!” you can hear Ariana say in the video featured here, even though she did recover and went on to complete the performance.
Later on, the rendition grew especially emotional for Grande during a verse about her parents.
“One day I’ll walk down the aisle. Holding hands with my mama,” Ariana sang, through tears. “I’ll be thanking my dad. ‘Cause she grew from the drama.”
Grande, of course, has been through a ton over the past couple years.
She was on stage in Manchester when a bomb exploded in the arena and killed over 20 fans.
Her serious ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, then recently died of a drug overdose.
Grande was engaged to Davidson at the time of this tragic death, only for that relationship to conclude and for the exes to end up on terrible terms.
Just as she does in the footage here, however, Grande continues to push through.
