​Watch Ariana Grande’s spot-on impression of Celine Dion

Everyone knows Ariana Grande can sing, but did you know she's also incredible at doing celebrity impressions? The pint-sized pop star popped in to Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show this week, where she nailed an impersonation of Celine Dion singing “Tale as Old as Time” from Beauty and the Beast.

Belting an impromptu duet with Jimmy, the 21-year-old songstress had the Quebec-born chanteuse’s distinctive vibrato and hand mannerisms down pat, as the talk-show host collapsed into laughter.

It was the "Love Me Harder" singer's first appearance as a guest rather than a musical performer on The Tonight Show. At first, Ariana seemed nervous.

"I don't speak. It's my first time speaking in front of people ... I've never talked on a talk show," admitted the singer, who previously had a comedic acting career on the Nickelodeon show Sam and Cat.

After her successful impression, Ariana later joined Jimmy for his famous “Ew!” sketch, and even sang a snippet of the “Ew!” song – in her signature, silky voice.


The brunette beauty, who is currently dating rapper Big Sean, joins a long list of stars who can do hilarious celebrity impressions. Just last month, Christina Aguilera wowed Jimmy Fallon with her Britney Spears, Cher and Shakira impersonations, while Benedict Cumberbatch racked up 11 imitations – including for Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Alan Rickman, Tom Hiddleston, Jack Nicholson, Matthew McConaughey and Taylor Swift – when he was promoting the Imitation Game last year in an interview with MTV News.

Meanwhile, Ariana is currently on tour and is slated to perform in Vancouver on April 16.
