Ariana Grande, you really are a red carpet pro.

Even as the clock was ticking for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards to begin, the "Dangerous Woman" singer was gracious enough to stop by Live From the Red Carpet to discuss the exciting night ahead. Before she could get on the platform, however, the pop superstar lost her footing.

"I almost broke my ass," Ariana joked to E! News' Sibley Scoles before showing off her designer gown. "Can we rewind? But that pony! You got to make it work."

Speaking of work, the "Focus" singer is killing it on the charts after the release of her latest album Dangerous Woman. In fact, the response has left the singer feeling extra grateful.

"It feels amazing. I'm so grateful for the response. Everybody has been all around positive and I'm not supposed to read things like that but I've been on Twitter just reading," she shared on Live From the Red Carpet. "It's been the most positive reaction to anything I ever put out. When you work so hard—I'm going to cry." 

While Top 40 music lovers are digging her single "Dangerous Woman," Ariana promises fans that there are more great tunes to come. In fact, she may just have a song of the summer up her sleeves.

"I think my single 'Into You' right now is definitely like a summery vibe. I did one called 'Side to Side,' another favorite summery type," she shared. "I hope everyone likes it. The cool thing is that everybody has a different favorite. That means a lot to me."

What all fans love is the singer's musical impressions most recently seen on Saturday Night Live. After spending plenty of years on Nickelodeon, perhaps it should come as no surprise that Ariana can channel many other singers instantly.

"I think I developed an ear for different voices, different characters just by being around theatrical people," she shared. "I don't know, it's always been something I do for fun, but I'm happy that everyone likes it."
