Ariana Grande has channelled '90s cult classic First Wives Club for the first performance of her headline-making new single, Thank U, Next.

Grande was there to debut "Thank U, Next", which references her former flames, including her ex-fiance, Pete Davidson, the late Mac Miller, and rapper Big Sean.

For the performance, Grande and her backup singers, Tayla Parx and Victoria Monet, who both helped her write "thank u, next", donned all-white outfits that gave off a clear bridal vibe.

The "Bang Bang" singer revealed that her exes, who she mentions by name in the first verse, heard the song before its release on Saturday.

It seems Ariana Grande still has some tears left to cry.

The Gabonese worldwide has already notched up two goals in the competition so far and will be eager to extend his scoring tally. He will be keen to impress following a rather disappointing couple of weeks for the Welshman.

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. She finished the performance with a smile, and danced down the aisles of the set while the audience cheered. It's one thing to sing the words, "I'm so fucking grateful for my ex", and it's another to really look like you mean them. I'll be thanking my dad. "'Cause she grew from the drama".

In a split second, as she's getting off the chair while still singing live, you can see her stumble just a bit and she even stops singing, saying, "Oh, my God!" as she gains her balance and goes on.

"I thought we were supposed to exit", She laughed.

Ninety minutes after the song dropped, Davidson made his own statement during the "SNL's" Weekend Update segment, concluding his raucous guest spot by saying, "I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it's nobody's business".
