The "God Is A Woman" hitmaker, 25, performed her breakup anthem, "Thank U, Next" for the first time on the November 7 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

There were some bumps and maybe even a few tears, but she persisted (and managed to find the fun), serving some on-point vocals as always.

Grande chose to channel the classic musical number from "The First Wives Club", wearing bridal white alongside her two backup singers to resemble the film's stars Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Dianne Keaton.

Ariana's dance routine was a tribute to the classic Hollywood film "First Wives Club", however Ari's chair stunt saw her stumble and nearly fall to the ground, as you can see in the video above. "Oh my God!" she said before continuing on.

"This one gon" last / "Cause her name is Ari / And I'm so good with that", she sang without missing a note, adding a self-deprecating chuckle.

"Thank you for being here". Thank you for being here.... you've had a rough year.

We loved how she and her girls simply marched up the stairs and off the set at the end of the number giving great attitude and girl power, but DeGeneres was on the stage waiting to chat with her.
