Meet 29 Of The Most Adorable Arianators In Ariana Grande’s Fan Army

We met up with the fans waiting outside for 'Total Ariana Live,' which airs tonight at 7 p.m. ET on MTV!

Let’s pause all the Ariana Grande lovin’ for a second — we’ll have plenty of time to do that during “Total Ariana Live” tonight at 7p/6c on MTV — and give praise to the unsung heroes on the “Problem” singer’s side: her fans.

While Ariana was busy getting ready for her big ol’ “TRL” revival at MTV, I trekked out into Times Square in New York City to meet the many Arianators lined up outside. They’d traveled all over the country — and even from Brazil — for a glimpse of their flawless Queen Ari.

MTV: Are you holding out hope for another season of “Sam & Cat”?

Melissa: Yes! Every Saturday, I check up on it. Sometimes, I record it if I can’t watch it.

MTV: Any other random bits of Ari knowledge you wanna throw our way?
