Ariana Grande regaled The Tonight Show audience with her spot-on musical impressions of Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Celine Dion.


The 22-year-old singer Grande  was a guest on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, and as guests of Jimmy Fallon‘s before her, she took part in the game Musical Impression Generator where guests have to sing a random song in the voice of an artist unrelated to that song.

Grande’s first challenge was singing “Mary had a Little Lamb” in the voice of Britney Spears. From the first note, Grande had Fallon and the audience laughing hysterically and then cheering. On her second try Grande had to sing “The Wheels on the Bus” in the voice of Christina Aguilera. The crowd cheered at her impressive impersonation, and Fallon threw up his hands and sprung out of his chair in amazement.

“We should just stop the show there, I don’t know how we can continue. That is unbelievable,” Fallon said, still in awe.

Fallon, too, tried his luck at the game, singing “Cheerleader” in the voice of Aaron Neville and “Can’t Feel My Face” in the voice of Sting.

“I love this game,” Grande told Fallon as she pressed the generator button for a third time. This time she got “Can’t Feel My Face,” same as Fallon, although the artist she had to impersonate was Celine Dion. Fallon asked the band to play the song in a higher key this time. “She would take it up,” Grande said of Dion. “She would modulate.” Her performance, once again, had the crowd cheering, and Fallon joined in as Sting for a final duet between the two.
