AceShowbiz - Love is clearly in the air for Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. Kicking off her "Sweetener Sessions" show at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday night, August 25, the former Nickelodeon star kissed her comedian fiance onstage.
The kiss wasn't the only thing that Pete did that night as he also proudly introduced Ariana to the audience. "Tonight is going to be a good night, let me introduce you to my girl," he said. "Coming to the stage -- I can't believe she talks to me -- give it up for my love, Ariana Grande!"
Donning a light purple "Sweetener" sweatshirt and tan boots, Ariana performed every songs off the new album except for her Nicki Minaj-assisted track "The Light Is Coming". She also belted out "Be My Baby" and "Only 1" off "My Everything" to celebrate the effort's fourth anniversary. Before launching into the latter track, she said, "I've actually never done this song before -- live anyway."
Towards the end of the show, Ariana stopped her performance of "Raindrops (An Angel Cried)" midway after an audience member yelled, "Start again I wasn't recording!" Laughing, she asked the said concertgoer, "Wait. Did you say, 'Start again, I wasn't recording?' Are you ready now?" Ariana did start again, fulfilling the fan's request.
