If you missed this episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, NWA is bringing it to you! Ariana Grande proved Tuesday night that she can mimic everyone from Britney spears to Celine Dion when host Jimmy Fallon challenged her to a game of “Wheel of musical impressions.”
The 22-year-old pop star kicked off the game with an on – the – spot Britney Spears- styled version of “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” She then went on to knock it out of the park with an impressive impression of the vocal queen Christina Aguilera’s version of the “Wheels on the Bus.” She matched the five-time Grammy Award winner’s tone and riff in the same manner that made Aguilera a star in the ‘90s. Let’s just say she left Fallon and the audience blown away!
“We should just stop the show there; I don’t know how we can continue,” Fallon said. “That is unbelievable. Wow, I want that recording.”
Aguilera tweeted about Grande’s rendition on Wednesday.
Grande wasn’t playing the game alone; Fallon had to show off his skills with some impressions of his own. The musical impressions generator selected OMI’s “Cheerleader” as Aaron Neville and The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” as Sting crooning for Fallon.
Grande’s final impression was to emulate Celine Dion preforming “Can’t Feel My Face.” At first she seemed unsure about how to accomplish the task of imitating the Canadian artist, but once she open her mouth she SLAYED it with no hesitations. Even though Grande blew Fallon out of the water, the two finished in a flawless duet of “Can’t Feel My Face” as Sting and Dion!
“I love this game,” Grande exclaimed.
Keep an eye out for Grande! During her appearance, she announced her first single called “Focus” off her new album coming out Oct. 30.
