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!

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!
