Update: Tuesday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” featured only one celebrity guest.
A rather popular one, it should be noted.
Pop superstar Ariana Grande appeared as the whole-show guest on Tuesday’s episode. She took part in a “Fan Surprise” segment, a “Musical Genre Challenge,” a “NBD” sketch and an interview with Jimmy Fallon. She also closed the show with a performance of her new single “No Tears Left To Cry.”
Videos of the interview (in which she spilled major details about her new album), performance and musical genre challenge follow. Additional videos will be posted upon availability.
Photos from the taping are also embedded.
The idea of Ariana Grande appearing on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” is nothing new — the pop superstar has visited the show on numerous occasions.
There is, however, something quite special about Grande’s appearance on Tuesday’s episode.
Grande is a “whole-show” guest on the episode. In addition to closing the show with a performance of “No Tears Left To Cry,” Grande joins host Jimmy Fallon for an interview. She also participates in a “Musical Genre Challenge,” a “NBD” bit, and a “Fan Surprise” segment.
Taped earlier Tuesday, the episode airs at 11:35PM ET/PT on NBC. Ahead of the broadcast, NBC shared first-look photos.
