Ariana Grande: Could she have a secret album out there?

Ariana Grande went straight to the top of the music charts with her single "thank u, next" this Sunday night, but this Monday, she suffered quite a few mishaps during her first live performance of the hit song.

Ariana Grande fans are speculating whether the singer has secretly released a whole album under a different identity.

Ariana Grande kept it very real during her Wednesday performance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show"!

Otherwise, the performance was thematically about what you would expect, with the stage set up to look like a wedding attended only by Grande and her two dancers, dressed in all white and enjoying themselves with no men in sight.

At one point, she climbed on top of a chair and almost fell on her way down. She recovered like a champ, though, laughing off the moment while continuing to sing, like it was no big deal.

All of this is addressed in the song, naturally, and on Ellen, Ari's poise and control make her delivery of the song an event.

In the video, the kidnappers force several of the young male students to give their names and the names of their parents. The priest did not say precisely when the children were freed, or whether any deal had been made with the kidnappers.

Grande, who memorializes Miller as an "angel" on the track, recently paid tribute to him online after a fan sent her a video of the late rapper listening to her song "R.E.M".

She helped organize the One Love Manchester concert a year ago, raising more than US$23 million for victims of the Manchester bombing.

Grande, however, wanted to ensure her listeners and followers that "thank u, next" was not meant to be a clap-back or revenge song.

"We were supposed to come down?"

And for all those who insist everyone lip syncs these kinds of performances, Grande's laughter a couple of times puts that to rest.

After the song's release, the star thanked fans for their support on Twitter.
