Watch: Ariana Grande Rocks ‘iHeartRadio Music Awards’ With ‘Problem’

Rihanna laughs from audience as Ariana shows off her new choreography

ariana grande iheartradio music awards 2014 billboard 650 Watch:  Ariana Grande Rocks iHeartRadio Music Awards With Problem

It looks like the projected blockbuster first week sales of “Problem” won’t be enough to satisfy 20-year-old powerhouse Ariana Grande.

For, in a bid to ensure the song lands atop the Billboard Hot 100 next week, Grande took to the iHeartRadio Music Awards with a slamming performance of the Iggy Azalea-assisted number.

While earning a few headbobs and chuckles from serial p-patter Rihanna, Ariana showed off a newfound confidence and choreography in the blazing set that saw her  belt out a medley of her hit “The Way” and “Problem”.

Easily a highlight of the night, tuck in below to see the performance that had us buzzing:

    She is a great vocalist but a boring performer

    @Islandboi80 She’s trying way harder then most of the Pop & Urban acts out there. So far she’s done the Disney Radio Awards, iHeart Awards, came out with her Lyric video & you no the video is on the way, plus she’s going to do even more when the album comes out. I can’t wait!

    Performance would’ve been a 10/10 if she didn’t look 14 years old. She needs to get a new wig ASAP. Otherwise she did really good.

    She’s such a cutie and her vocals are just like the studio which is good but at the same time, her enunciation is really bad. I can barely make out what she says at times. I dunno, I wanna like this girl but her performance was cringe-worthy because she looks so young trying to be all s***. I love her white boots though.

    Just saw it on TV. She looked all of 4ft nothing on stage, much as I give her props for her voice this is why these Disney/Nick kids can’t make it. You can’t look 14 and expect adults to buy your music, same with Selena.

    I love Ariana!

    By the way, why the hell is Rihfund laughing? It better not be at Ariana’s dancing because Rihfund can barely follow a robots steps.

    BTW thatgrapejuice- your new site layout sucks and is worse than before. All these damn ads and it runs slower too.

    Not crazy about the hair, but there is just something about rih that makes her able to pull off any look.

    This jada from matrix look gave me absolute life. Although as a fan i feel like this look was kind of close to the icon award outfit! But nevertheless still absolutely gorgeous! That green lip is everything! I think she was laughing because she thought it was cute to see ari breaking out with cute dance moves! I even chuckled a bit! I give ari an a for effort she isnt the best dancer but i she already has me sold i can do without it!

    Yass, Riri is working those “dooky” braids…

    Anyways, Ariana shut that down. She was prancing around looking cute & sounding good. Her voice is not for me (too girlish & immature) but she can sing live unlike the other diva in the audience.

    Good For Her 10/10!

    I enjoyed the performance but I agree with everyone that said she needs to work on her enunciation.

    She’s just a little stiff and inexperienced. She’ll get better.

    I HOPE SHE GETS BETTER WITH TIME BECAUSE SHE HAS A GOOD VOICE. BUT BABY GIRL HAS NO STAGE PRESENCE. SHE REALLY CAN’T DANCE AND THE WHOLE SECOND HALF OF THE SONG SHE WAS OUT OF BREATH AND THATS WHEN SHE STARTS SCREAMING AND TRYING TO PUMP THE CROWD UP. HOPE SHE GETS BETTER. I’M JUST NOT FEELING HER PERFORMANCES THO. UGH WHY CANT WE HAVE MORE POWERFUL PERFORMERS LIKE BEYONCE / PINK / CIARA. *YES CIARA MIGHT NOT HAVE A POWERFUL VOICE BUT SHE CAN PUT ON A SHOW.

    Her tone is starting to get really annoying, she needs to use her range much more. The song is still tragic and so was that routine, the Lolita s** appeal that she’s aiming for is not working.
