Ariana Grande Last Christmas Enters Top 30 Asia Chart While Her Performance At The AMA’s Gets Standing Ovation From Lady Gaga


USA: In a stunning red dress, Ariana Grande gave such an incredible performance of ‘Tattooed Heart’ at the American Music Awards that Lady Gaga & Kelly Clarkson both agreed it was the performance of the night.

Looking like Jessica Rabbit, a shimmering Ariana sung a note perfect version of her track ‘Tattooed Heart’ from Yours Truly. It received a standing ovation from the audience and later, the 20yr old singer was handed the award for Favourite New Artist. In a moving speech that she had kept hidden inside her dress, a visibly shaken Ariana thanked all the usual people. She later apologised to her fans for not tweeting from the award show with an explanation, “oh gawd I haven’t had my phone all night but thank you thank you thank you, such an exciting night & I owe it to u all. love u with all my heart”

Ariana has recently released a version of ‘Last Christmas’ by British pop due, Wham!. The track is now an established favourite but Ariana has given it her own twist. In a daring move she has added new verses to the classic song, but kept the familiar chorus and setting the whole track to a pulsating urban R&B hiphop beat with productions by the Rascals. Ariana has promised to release a new track every week in the run up to Christmas so fans can expect her to make a regular appearance in the top 30 Asia chart.
