Ariana Grande and Jimmy Fallon layered on the schmaltz Friday night, giving the Broadway songbook treatment to a medley of rap hits. Sitting pretty atop Fallon’s piano, Grande gamely joined the blonde-wigged host in belting out Jay Z’s “99 Problems,” Cypress Hill’s “Insane in the Brain” and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop.”

The performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon caps off a big couple of weeks for the Nickelodeon darling. Fresh on the heels of her debut performance at the MTV Music Video Awards, Grande released her first album, Yours Truly, on September 3rd.
