Ariana Grande is absolutely fine with all those Mariah Carey comparisons.

"Mariah has been a huge influence on me since I was a little girl," Grande revealed to Us Weekly. "I've even done a cover of one of her songs. I don't think there are any negatives to being compared to one of the greatest vocalists of all time. It's honestly a great honor."

Comparisons between the two artists have been rolling in since Grande busted onto the music scene in 2013, with some critics on board and some arguing otherwise.

But in whichever camp you happen to fall, you'll probably still enjoy Grande's fantastic cover of Carey's "Emotions":
