Ariana Grande named Billboard's 2018 Woman of the Year

  • Billboard has named American singer Ariana Grande its Woman of the Year for 2018

Ariana Grande was in lovely voice if not necessarily graceful presence during her world premiere performance of "Thank U, Next" on "Ellen" Wednesday morning.

There were some bumps and maybe even a few tears, but she persisted (and managed to find the fun), serving some on-point vocals as always.

The singer was looking gorgeous in white for a "First Wives' Club"-inspired performance of the viral track she released within an hour of the return of "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend".

Ariana's dance routine was a tribute to the classic Hollywood film "First Wives Club", however Ari's chair stunt saw her stumble and nearly fall to the ground, as you can see in the video above. So half an hour before the latest episode of SNL started, Grande put her new single out into the world, and it nearly immediately became a meme to rival "me voting in 2016 vs.me voting today". "'Cause she grew from the drama". "Only wanna do it once, real bad / Gon" make that shit last / God forbid something happens / Least this song is a smash". That was wonderful! That was awesome. "We support you", host Ellen DeGeneres said after the song. Thank you for being here.... you've had a rough year.

The cause of death for the victims has never been publicly confirmed, though court records have suggested they were strangled. If it goes as planned, Rourke said he will not fight the release of the autopsy reports for Shanann Watts and her daughters.


What we love most about this video is that Ariana could have totally redone the whole thing, but chose not to.

In Your Hands is thought to be the collaboration between Ariana Grande and Diplo which was teased in 2016.

So far in Ariana's career, she's held the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart three times and her August album release Sweetener pulled in the largest streaming numbers by a female pop album ever. Wrote some songs about Ricky, now I listen and laugh.
