Ariana Grande Perfectly Impersonates Celine Dion on ‘The Tonight Show’ [VIDEO]
Ariana Grande has one set of pipes, but the “One Last Time” singer shows just how well she uses them when she impersonated Celine Dion on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Friday night (March 20).
We already know that she can belt a Mariah Carey tune effortlessly, but she blew everyone away with her vocals on the 1992 track “Beauty and the Beast.” Performing it with Jimmy Fallon, who sang as Peabo Bryson, she didn’t only hit every note perfectly but also sounded exactly like Celine! The impersonation was so good that Jimmy broke out of character a few times, especially when she would throw in all the ad-libs that the “My Heart Will Go On” singer is known for.
Ariana, who has been known for her performances on Nickelodeon shows Victorious and Sam & Cat, got more laughs when she started hitting her chest — something Celine has been known to do at live performances.
Her acting didn’t stop there. She exercised her comedic chops on Jimmy’s “Ew” segment. Playing Alexa Armstrong, Sara’s BFF, Ariana goes back to her teen years and is dressed in a flamingo- and candy-covered dress with a stuffed unicorn purse to match. While they took selfies and chatted about Instagram, the segment took a funnier turn when Sara and Alexa had a sing-off before Sara’s stepdad, Gary, walks in. Can you guess who won that one? You can see the rest of the skit below.
That wasn’t the only thing Ariana was up to on Friday night. She kicked off the first of two nights of The Honeymoon Tour at the New York City arena. She performs again tonight with Rixton, who’ll be opening the show.
