Ariana Grande is “sobbing” with joy after getting to sing alongside one of her biggest heroes… Barbra Streisand!
The Boyfriend singer shocked the audience at Babs’ concert at the United Center in Chicago on Tuesday night when she appeared on stage to perform the iconic duet No More Tears (Enough Is Enough) with the musical legend.
The crowd immediately gave Ari a standing O as she stormed the stage in a black power suit, which matched Barbs’ all-black ensemble. The pair then held hands while performing the song, with the 26-year-old valiantly taking on Donna Summer’s part.
Streisand later took to social media to share a pic (above) of herself and Ari standing side by side in the green room before the show, making sure to thank the former Nickelodeon star for stopping by in her caption.
As you can see in the Instagram shot, Ariana’s fangirling pretty hard.
If her childlike expression wasn’t revealing enough, the Grammy-winner left a comment on the photo detailing the whirlwind of emotions she was going through following the epic performance. She wrote:
“I’m sobbing 🖤 love you so much. i cant. get over this. it’s just…. the most special and cherished experience ever. thank you. ☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️”
Grande later shared a black and white version of the photo to Twitter, writing in the caption:
“cherishing this moment forever @BarbraStreisand”
We bet she will!
Cherish the moment yourself by watching the duet in full (below)!
Streisand teased this epic duet a day before her concert, taking to Instagram to share a mildly mysterious snapshot of her hands next to Grande’s tattoo-laden hand:
Babs didn’t mention Ari by name in the post, but the Sweetener songstress gave everything away by commenting on the pic with a heart emoji.
The sob-worthy performance comes a week after we EXCLUSIVELY reported Ariana has a new man in her life: Mikey Foster of the musical duo Social House.
The two have worked on multiple songs together over the past few months, like thank u, next; 7 rings; and Ari’s latest bop, Boyfriend. Days after the release of Boyfriend, the two partied it up in Chicago following Grande’s performance at Lollapalooza — and they’ve been making regular cameos on each other’s IGs.
Ariana has yet to publicly comment on the rumored romance. We wonder if she mentioned it to her new bestie, Barbra…
