Ariana Grande continues making the TV rounds in support of her just-released debut album Yours Truly, and she has again enlisted the help of one of her friends. On Tuesday she and Mac Miller performed “The Way” for the morning show set, and today (September 5) she appeared on Live with Kelly & Michael with The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes for their beautifully spare duet “Almost Is Never Enough.”

I imagine it would be intimidating to go note for note with a vocal powerhouse like Ariana, but Sykes holds his own, and the result is a lovely, understated performance from both. Or, as co-host Kelly Ripa said afterward, “It looks like the top of a wedding cake watching you two singing to each other! It’s so beautiful.”
