Ariana Grande continues putting on the finishing touches for her MTV Music Video Awards performance. Stealing a moment to herself backstage, the “thank u, next” singer snapped some bedazzled PPE rehearsal pics while sporting a 90’s chic double ponytail.
The first solo pic, with the caption “Greetings,” is a precursor to Ari’s second, showing off the artist’s full hairdo and arm ink in a bathroom mirror reflection.
Twitter user @ArianatorFallen was able to capture another rehearsal moment from Ariana’s Instagram story. Ari approaches a mirror and miraculously does a full on squat and hold wearing white platforms all the way up
Just last week, Grande set the internet a blaze tweeting a joint performance with Lady Gaga would go down at this year’s VMA’s. The duo’s latest hit single and accompanying music video for “Rain on Me” is nominated for a whopping seven Moon People.
The live performance marks Ari’s first since 2018 at the awards show, when she performed her hit “God Is a Woman.” She’s nominated for an astounding nine awards - Video of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop, Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Best Choreography and Best Collaboration (all for “Rain on Me”), and for her collaboration with Justin Bieber, “Stuck With U” (Best Collaboration and Best Music Video From Home).
The MTV Music Video Awards are set to air this Sunday at 8PM ET with socially distant, live performances throughout all New York City. Make sure to follow RADIO.COM on all social media to can catch VMA highlights and reactions.
