You can tell because Tuesday (November 6), she brought her best white outfit and two finest back-up singers to Ellen to debut her new self-actualized single "Thank U, Next" in a sequence that played like her very own major cinematic moment.
As for the performance, it was definitely live as she almost took a faceplant trying to step down from a chair on the wedding reception-inspired set.
She sings: "Thought I'd end up with Sean/But he wasn't a match/Wrote some songs about Ricky/Now I listen and laugh".
There were some bumps and maybe even a few tears, but she persisted (and managed to find the fun), serving some on-point vocals as always.

"Even nearly got married/And for Pete I'm so thankful/Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm/Cause he was an angel". This September, her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, died of an accidental overdose caused by mixing drugs and alcohol.
Though the Ellen performance mostly goes off without a hitch, Grande and her companions mistakenly dance through the Ellen audience toward the studio exit when the song concludes. "I thought we were supposed to exit". Sometimes things just don't work out and that's okay.
