Performing for the first time ever on 'Saturday Night Live' on Sept. 27, Ariana Grande proved once again why she's a chart-topping artist.

The 21-year-old and her powerful, uber-controlled vocals shined during two amazing performances of "Break Free" and "Love Me Harder" on this weekend's episode, hosted by Chris Pratt.

Launching into her first performance atop a piano, Grande started singing a stripped down intro to "Break Free" before hopping down to ground level and moving into the usual, faster-paced version of her hit track.

Surrounded by a group of hot male backup dancers, Ariana oozed sex appeal as she flaunted some impressive choreography.

Later in the show, Grande sang "Love Me Harder," joined on stage by The Weeknd, who is featured in the song.

Did we mention she also wore a hot crop top?

The SNL debut was one of many high-profile gigs the star has earned recently - she sang the National Anthem at the NFL kickoff and performed at the Stand Up To Cancer telethon.

We can't wait to see what she does next.
