Ariana Grande brought the magic to the 2024 Met Gala.

How to Watch

Watch The Voice on NBC and Peacock. 

On May 6 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Grande gave a, well, grand performance singing "Once Upon a Dream" from Sleeping Beauty. There, she fully embraced the "Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion" theme by being elegantly carried onstage before sounding like a true Disney princess, singing an operatic version of the song. 

Check out the performance further down this article.

Grande and her Wicked co-star, Cynthia Erivo, met up at the Met Gala red carpet to pose for stunning pictures together. Grande looked stunning in a white Loewe corset adorned with pearls. Erivo complemented Grande's look by rocking a Thom Browne two-piece set that featured pink floral detailing. The two then embraced, holding hands before Grande gave Erivo a kiss on the cheek. 

To make the night even more awe-inspiring, Erivo joined Grande onstage for a show-stopping, surprise performance. Grande started off her set by singing her hits “Into You” from Dangerous Woman; “Seven Rings” from Thank U, Next; and “The Boy Is Mine,” “We Can’t Be Friends,” and “Yes, And” from her latest album, Eternal Sunshine

Erivo then made an appearance for a duet of "When You Believe,” originally done by vocal powerhouses Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.

What to know about the Wicked movie starring Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo

In the upcoming Wicked movie, which is an adaption of the Broadway musical of the same name, Grande will play Glinda (the "good" witch), while Erivo will play Elphaba, the "wicked" witch. 

When production wrapped in January, Erivo took to Instagram to pay homage to every talented person who worked on the film. 

"The universe will take things away to make space for the grand gifts it has waiting for us. This moment, this film, these people, this cast, this crew, this director, my Glinda, were the grandest gift I could ever have asked for, and I am eternally grateful for the chance to bring you this Elphie. I hope when you meet her, you’ll love her as much and as fiercely as I do. And with that I say, that’s a wrap for me, Elphie out!!" she wrote in the caption.
