Ariana Grande Covers Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean” Live: Watch
Several weeks ago, YouTuber Jake Marra posted a mash-up of Ariana Grande‘s “One Last Time” and Justin Bieber‘s “What Do You Mean?” When Ryan Seacrest asked Ariana about it, she admitted that she was obsessed with the end result: “Whoever did that is such a genius.” So last night (September 18), Ariana did one better — she covered “What Do You Mean” during her concert at Houston’s Toyota Center. She used the original instrumental, though with her powerful vocals she still made the song — Justin’s debut No. 1, believe it or not — her own.
Ariana is touring with Prince Royce and Who Is Fancy until October 25, so five days before she debuts her own single “Focus.” Watch her cover “What Do You Mean?” and hear the mashup that inspired the stunt below.
