Watch Ariana Grande Perform “The Way” + “Problem,” Accept Young Influencer Award At iHeartRadio Music Awards!


Ariana Grande had an incredible night at the first-ever iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday (May 1) at the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles, CA! Not only did she impress the crowd with a killer duel-performance of her first hit “The Way” and her brand new single “Problem” — and looked incredible doing it — she also took the stage one more time — to accept her iHeartRadio Young Influencer Award!

Hilary Duff — who was looking incredible in a LBD herself — presented Ariana with the award, introducing her as “a young woman who’s a real trendsetter,” before going on to reveal her latest success: “She’s influencing a new generation of fans who have taken her song ‘Problem’ to #1 in 50 countries… and taken her to heart.”

Ariana, surprised to be honored with the special award, was even more excited that Hilary was the one giving it to her, finishing up her gracious, flustered speech with: “I’m going to go hug Hilary Duff again.” Adorable.

Check out Ariana’s performance and her sweet acceptance speech in the videos below now and let us know how you think she did at the iHeartRadio Music Awards last night!
