Watch Ariana Grande recover after a stumble during her live debut of ‘Thank U, Next’

Grande delivers a 'First Wives Club' inspired performance

Ariana Grande has debuted new single ‘Thank U, Next’ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today.

Mid-set, Grande fell off a chair during the performance, causing the star to exclaim “oh my god!” during the song before she was able to steady herself again.

Grande appeared on stage two dancers in a set inspired by one of Grande’s favourite films – The First Wives Club – which also shares themes with Grande’s latest song.


As well as performing ‘Thank  U, Next’, Grande also performed ‘Breathin” from latest album ‘Sweetener’ for the first time. Grande released a new video for the song yesterday (November 7).

Last week, Grande shared a cut-and-paste style lyric video for  ‘Thank U, Next’ , a song in which the star references her famous exes, including SNL comedian Pete Davidson, with whom she called off her engagement to last month, and late rapper Mac Miller.
