Ariana Grande was the musical guest and host of this week's Saturday Night Live.

In the tradition of Ray Charles, Mick Jagger, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, MC Hammer (?) and Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande took on double duties on last night's episode of Saturday Night Live, serving as both the host and musical guest.

With plenty of experience in both singing and acting, she made it work, particularly when she combined her talents in a skit that found her playing an intern at Tidal and doing various musical impressions (some we've heard before on Fallon), which included Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Rihanna, most of which were pretty spot on, though there was a lazy jab at the incomprehensibility of Rih's patois on "Work".

From there, she performed two songs from her upcoming third album, Dangerous Woman, which included the title track and a brand new record called "Be Alright".

Watch the aforementioned skit, the performances, and her monologue below.
