Ariana Grande Owns The Stage In LBD For iHeartRadio Music Awards Performance — Check Out The Pics!


Ariana Grande might not have walked the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday night (May 1) in downtown Los Angeles, CA, but she’s still getting major buzz for the killer performance that had the Shrine Auditorium jumping!

After an introduction from Lil Jon, Ariana opened up with her first smash hit single The Way from her debut album Yours Truly, appearing from behind her dancers wearing an oversized black sweater and the go-go boots she’s been rocking to usher in this new era of her music.

The transition was even more visible when The Way gave way to her brand new track “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea — already burning up iTunes charts around the world, setting records, and getting collectively stuck in all our heads — and her sweater was removed to reveal a tighter sequined slip dress. The look was less conservative and so was the choreography — which even had Rihanna bringing a hand to her mouth!

In addition to impressing the crowd, Ariana has made a huge impression on iHeartRadio and fans around the world, which is exactly why they presented her with the Young Influencer Award. Congrats, Ariana!

Check out the photos of Ariana on stage, off, and with her new biggest fan, Rihanna, in the gallery below now, and be sure to click here to watch Ariana’s performance and see her accept her award… from Hilary Duff!
