Ariana Grande Is Barely Recognizable On Her First Grammys Red Carpet

Everybody has to start somewhere, right?

Itty-bitty bubblegum bubble Ariana Grande has been absolutely KILLIN' it on the red carpet for the past two years.

If anything, seeing this four-year old pic of Ariana has only made us doubly excited to see what she whips out for the 2015 Grammys this upcoming weekend, though. From the red carpet to her sure-to-be epic performance, one thing is for certain—she's gonna slay.
