Ariana Grande's "One Last Time" Video: Watch
The 'My Everything' star survives the apocalypse in the video for her new single.

Nicki Minaj joined Ariana Grande on stage last night (February 15) at the NBA All-Star Weekend halftime performance. She was there to spit her verse on Jessie J‘s “Bang Bang,” so her appearance was brief. Still, they used their time wisely: Once Minaj finished her verse, she started dancing closer to Grande. The My Everything star responded by lightly spanking The Pinkprint rapper’s ass.

Grande performed six songs total: her biggest hits from Yours Truly (“The Way”) and its follow-up LP My Everything (“Problem,” “Break Free,” “Love Me Harder”), plus her new single “One Last Time.” While she wore a cheerleader’s outfit, the mini diva focused her energy on singing — that is, until Minaj took the stage with her.
