Ariana Grande Played a Tidal Intern on SNL, Did Uncanny Impressions of Pop Stars

Pop star Ariana Grande did double-duty last night as Saturday Night Live’s host and musical guest. Or septuple-duty, depending on how you count, since she also channeled Britney Spears, Shakira, Rihanna, Celine Dion, and Whitney Houston in this skit where she plays an intern at Tidal.

It turns out that Grande  is an extremely impressive impersonator—she also did an uncanny Jennifer Lawrence in a different SNL sketch—and this merry-go-round of impressions was arguably her best performance of the night.
