Former Nickelodeon starlet Ariana Grande takes her show on the road, belting it out to scores of fans who have grown up with her since her days on the show “Sam and Cat,” where she got her start and the inspiration for her signature cat ears. Dubbed a “baby Mariah Carey,” Grande’s got pipes that garner praise from some of music’s biggest talents including Kelly Clarkson and Katy Perry. Ariana Grande shows are full-service affairs: heavily produced, fully choreographed spectacles. But the real draw is her four-octave powerhouse voice. She performs a mix of original hits and covers, often including Whitney Houston and Madonna songs as well seeing as those women are two of her main influences. Grande is a gracious performer with a strong connection to her fans, which spills over onto social media where she’s very active and will often chronicle her life on and off stage. Her many, many followers often catalog the concert experience in high detail, so expect a lot of raised phones and selfies to be taken throughout the night at an Ariana Grande show. Ariana Grande’s combination of genuine personality, high energy, and triple-threat talent makes for an electrifying performance.
