Ariana fans have become very familiar with the singer's mother, Joan Grande, her brother, Frankie, and grandparents, Marjorie (aka Nonna) and the late Frank Grande.

During her performance, the 25-year-old almost fell during the song's second verse after she had climbed onto a white chair to sing a few lines.

Ariana's dance routine was a tribute to the classic Hollywood film "First Wives Club", however Ari's chair stunt saw her stumble and nearly fall to the ground, as you can see in the video above.

Inspired by her favorite movie The First Wives Club, the pop superstar was joined by the song's co-writers, Victoria Monét and Tayla Parx.

"This one gon" last / "Cause her name is Ari / And I'm so good with that", she sang without missing a note, adding a self-deprecating chuckle.

While she didn't go into detail about what tore them apart, it appears that she has come to terms with their distant relationship. "Only wanna do it once, real bad / Gon" make that shit last / God forbid something happens / Least this song is a smash". She finished the performance with a smile, and danced down the aisles of the set while the audience cheered. You've had a rough year.
