Adding to that impressive feat, Ari sang Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing" flawlessly, earning loving looks from the Obamas and a standing ovation from some of the big names at the Women of Soul: Performance at the White House concert (including Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, Aretha Franklin, Melissa Etheridge and Tessanne Chin).
So you could say Ariana was in some amazingly good company. She also didn't seem a bit nervous, even making a little small talk with the Obamas before kicking off her song, saying, "Mr. President, Mrs. Obama--what's up? How are ya? Good to see ya. What's good, it's all good?"
OMG, that's pretty freaking adorable. (Side note: for all the hair and style haters, Ariana rocked a gorgeous black gown and wore her hair DOWN for a change.)
Ariana even got some Twitter praise after the event from Patti, who tweeted: "@ArianaGrande I love you back Baby Girl and keep doing what you're doing because you're fierce! XOXO!
