Ariana Grande Sings Broadway Versions of Rap Songs on ‘Late Night’

Jimmy Fallon and Ariana Grande

Following her whirlwind promo tour, Ariana Grande capped off her release week with an appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” The diva-in-training teamed up with the talk show host to perform a medley of hip-hop songs with a Broadway twist.

Perched on a piano, she belted out Jay Z’s “99 Problems,” Cypress Hill’s “Insane in the Brain,” and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop,” while a wig-wearing Fallon played the keys.

Watch them perform the hits like you’ve never heard them before.

    @georgia23, Lol. I loved it too. And I agree. Once an artist has been associated with Disney, Nick, etc. it’s hard for others to shake that image of that person and people expect them to act a certain way.But who knows? Maybe she’ll be done with Nick soon.

    LOL XD I was expecting to hear her sing “FUCKING” but I laughed when they bleeped it out XD

    That goes more for Disney Channel! Nick has a lot more adult subject matter and innuendo anyway.

    @Leona Lewis, she’s 10 years her senior. I’d hope so, Ariana isn’t finished growing.
