From dropping the first official listen of her new single, “Break Free,” to announcing her performance at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards — not to mention, um, breathing new life into MTV staple “TRL” after seven years off the air — Ariana Grande’s “Total Ariana Live” was clearly a lot to process.
How ’bout we all just grab a family-size tub of hummus (chips optional), take a seat on the nearest couch, gather our
breath ponytails, and relive “Total Ariana Live” in all its glory — in GIFs, obviously.
Open on SCREAMS. “TAL” host and objectively incredible human being Sway introduced Ariana Grande.
“I’m very, very excited, but I’m so nervous!” Ariana revealed. “I’ve never done anything like this. I brought ’TRL’ back!”
Luckily, she had her cuddly ponytail there to calm her down.
And then, the big reveal: Ariana will perform her new My Everything single, “Break Free” featuring Zedd, at the VMAs!
Next, Ariana whipped out a killer Harry Styles impression (“Sure, mate.”).
And played “Hip-Hop Mix-Up,” where she performed A$AP Rocky’s “F–kin’ Problems” in the style of Broadway. Truly, it was [EXPLETIVE DELETED].
Following that, Ariana slowed it down for an flaw-free, vocally driven rendition of “Problem.”
When reached for comment, the entire world had this to say:
How do you cap off such a perfect night? “BREAK FREE” DANCE PARTY.” Good night!
