After bringing some pop to the CMA Awards at the beginning of November, Ariana Grande broke out a three-song medley at the American Music Awards on Sunday night, including her hits "Problem," "Break Free," and "Love Me Harder." During "Love Me Harder," she brought out The Weeknd. Dressed in a black, sheer gown, Grande owned the stage.
Grande also performed at the 2013 American Music Awards, where her performance of "Tattooed Heart" earned a standing ovation from Lady Gaga. Grande was also the recipient of the 2013 New Artist of the Year Award.
Later in the evening, Grande performed her summer hit "Bang Bang" with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J.
