2013 American Music Awards - Show

Ariana Grande owned the stage during the season finale of ABC’s Greatest Hits. For her dazzling performance, the pint-sized diva honored Whitney Houston with covers of “How Will I Know” and “Queen of the Night.”

“Whitney holds such a special place in my heart. She inspired me to start singing as a little girl,” she told Billboard in 2013. “I’d watch The Bodyguard and tell my mom I wanted to do that one day. Her riffs are so precise and I love her tone. She’s my inspiration.” 

Of course, it should come as no surprise that Grande can hold her weight alongside the legends. Known for her spot-on vocal impersonations, the “Voodoo Love” singer has covered everyone from Christina Aguilera to Celine Dion with mind-blowing precision.

Last night was no exception. Watch Ariana slay below.
