Kris Jenner steals the show in Ariana Grande's 'thank u, next' music video: Watch

Ariana Grande's "thank u, next" music video finally premiered on Friday, and it was Kris Jenner who unexpectedly stole the show in the highly-anticipated clip.

The video, which showed Grande recreating iconic moments from chick flicks "Mean Girls," "Bring It On," "13 Going On 30" and "Legally Blonde," comes three weeks into the breakup anthem's time at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and garnered nearly 500,000 views during its live premiere on YouTube.

Grande had been heavily teasing the video on Instagram for weeks, but it was Kris Jenner's cameo as Amy Poehler's iconic "Mean Girls" character, Mrs. George, that generated the biggest conversation online. Clad in a pink velour tracksuit, Jenner melds Poehler's suburban stage-mom persona and her own public perception as an over-involved momager for her already-viral cameo in Grande's latest video as she films Grande (as Regina George) and the rest of her clique dancing at her school's Christmas talent show.

Watch the music video for "thank u, next" below:
 

In lieu of "Jingle Bell Rock," which Regina (originally played by Rachel McAdams) and her friends, the Plastics, memorably created choreography for in the original 2004 film, the ladies dance to Grande's first No. 1 hit as Jenner mimics along from the audience.

The kicker comes at the end of the video, though, when the camera cuts back to Jenner for two seconds as she screams, "thank you next, b--ch!"

Jenner's cameo was so well-received that Twitter called it "the role she was born to play." Others were calling it awards-worthy, saying, "Kris Jenner for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars."
