Singer Ariana Grande's big week on late night continued with an appearance on Thursday's episode of The Tonight Show, but it wasn't amusing like her Late Late Show spots.

The two singers individually gave lovely performances of Aretha Franklin's hit song 'Natural Woman'.

While artists like Mariah Carey, Lauryn Hill, and Missy Elliott penned heartfelt tributes, Ariana Grande paid homage to the Queen of Soul with an emotional performance on "The Tonight Show". I think there are so many times - when I was with her, I literally felt like I was crossing some kind of vortex.

While on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ariana also said that she predicted she would marry Pete Davidson three years ago, during her mini-listening party of her brand new album, "Sweetener".




"It's an honor to have met her and we're going to celebrate her", she said.

According to TMZ, Ariana was originally meant to perform in a comedy skit, but was asked upon arrival by producers to perform an Aretha song in her honour.

Earlier, Grande posted a touching photo on Twitter of herself with the Queen of Soul. The "No Tears Left to Cry" star described the late artist as "so sweet".

Grande later recalled receiving a phone call from Franklin, who wanted Grande to listen to music from either her nephew or grandson - Grande couldn't remember which.
