Not only did she wear a bridal-style blazer dress with lace accents and thigh-high white boots, but Grande also had the entire stage set as a wedding reception - complete with white cake, table settings and tons of flowers.

Update 11/6, 10:43 pm: Grande has heard our pleas for clarity and responded with a clip of her upcoming performance on Ellen, that indeed appears to be First Wives Club themed.

She powered through the hard moment, ending her live performance with a big smile. And for all those who insist everyone lip syncs these kinds of performances, Grande's laughter a couple of times puts that to rest.

This was real and authentic and so, so on point!

She helped organize the One Love Manchester concert previous year, raising more than US$23 million for victims of the Manchester bombing. That whole presentation was fire, but she probably needed to clarify that exit a little better with DeGeneres. "We love you, we support you".

In a split second, as she's getting off the chair while still singing live, you can see her stumble just a bit and she even stops singing, saying, "Oh, my God!" as she gains her balance and goes on.

"We were supposed to come down?"

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, the singer, 25, told her fans: "remember when i was like hey i have no tears left to cry and the universe was like HAAAAAAAAA b***h u thought" (sic). Pete Davidson, who until very recently was Grande's fiancé, had made a joke about their breakup on an SNL preview, and Grande didn't appreciate it. "She's a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world".
