Music guest Ariana Grande gives a TV debut performance of “Imagine” for the Tonight Show audience.
Ariana Grande was the musical guest on tonight’s episode of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, performing the second cut from her forthcoming album thank u, next, “imagine.” The Roots backed her up, adding some jazzy holiday flourishes and making the first performance of the track a special one. Elsewhere in the episode, Ari stood alongside Fallon, Horatio Sanz, Tracy Morgan and Chris Kattan for a performance of “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” from Saturday Night Live. Check that out below, and watch the “imagine” performance above.

Grande also stuck around for some Christmas carolling with Saturday Night Livealums Horatio Sanz, Tracy Morgan and Chris Kattan.
Ari’s new track is currently in a three-way race for the coveted U.K. Christmas No. 1 and it’s lifted from her upcoming studio album.
Earlier in the show, she bopped along with Fallon, Horatio Sanz, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan for a cover of “I Wish It Was Christmas Today,” which Sanz and Fallon inexplicably sang (terribly) while Grande smiled silently.
Grande has described “Imagine” as a “a simple, beautiful love that is now (and forever) unattainable,” although fans were quick to point out references to her late boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, in that he had a tattoo that said “Imagine” and there are allusions to some of his lyrics in the song. Grande wrote, “A lot of this album mourns failed yet important, beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth/exploring new independence),. But for those of you asking about ‘Imagine’: I would say if ‘Thank U, Next’ = acceptance… ‘Imagine’ = denial. Hope that makes sense.”
