Ariana Grande Performs ‘The Way’ and ‘Baby I’ Acoustic

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is going unplugged. The 20-year-old diva-in-training showed off her powerful pipes while performing her singles “The Way” and “Baby I” for the staff at Modern Luxury Media. Accompanied by Justin Bieber’s guitarist Dan Kanter, she made some new fans with her acoustic set.

In advance of the September 3 release of her debut Yours Truly, she has joined Bieber on his “Believe” tour. Her album is also available for pre-order on iTunes featuring the Big Sean-assisted “Right There.”

The Nickelodeon star will launch her own month-long tour called “The Listening Sessions” on August 13 in Silver Spring, MD.

Watch her stripped-down set below.

    Everyone keeps saying she’s trying to sing like Mariah, but maybe she’s just singing the way she sings naturally. No need to compared. Ariana is a talented girl, don’t discredit her.

    Her sounding like Mariah doesn’t mean she wants to be her. And what exactly is Mariah doing right now?

    I haven’t stopped playing “Right There” … its so flawless !!!! She is amazing … anyone who says shes trying to be Mariah is a lamb who is salty. Mariah is a legend but shes not the only one who can sing like that.

    I love her voice. I can hear how everyone says she sounds like Mariah. In that case, she sounds like Mariah in the 90s. I love her voice.

    Mariah – your wig girl its been snatched! I am checking for this album despite the hot mess that was the MS paint cover which her team changed swiftly this performance was #beautiful

    She has similarities to MC, but in no way shape or form is she on her level.. MC’s skill & voice is far more robust than Ariana’s. MC’s musicianship is far superior.. She’s also greater technically.. MC certainly can still run circles around these chicks. Check out her performances from Aus, and have a seat. She’s good but nothing special.. Her management will fail at trying to make her too much like MC..

    These Mariah “insults” look like compliments to me. How many of you have actually been told to stop trying to sound like Mariah?
