Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea Perform “Problem” at 2014 Billboard Music Awards (VIDEO)
Ariana Grande is unstoppable. The 20-year-old singer has been on a whirlwind media tour promoting her chart-topping single “Problem.” Her latest stop? The 2014 Billboard Music Awards, where Ari was joined on stage by Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea.
The diva-in-training performed in a black-and-white dress, flaunting her pipes and mimicking a few of Bob Fosse’s most memorable moves. Iggy then joined her on stage for her rapid-fire guest verse. Cue adorable synchronized choreography!
Ariana and Iggy are both successful newcomers to the industry, and they definitely left a lasting impression on the music legends in the house at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 18 in Las Vegas. “Problem,” featuring Iggy, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 after selling 438,000 downloads in its first week — the fourth-biggest start for a song by a female artist. Way to go, Ariana!
Meanwhile, Iggy’s hit single “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX, currently stands at No. 3 on the Hot 100. With "Problem” now at No. 4, Billboard reports that Iggy is the first female rapper ever to have two songs concurrently in the Top 5 of the Hot 100 chart. Clearly, Ariana and Iggy aren’t showing signs of stopping anytime soon — and we couldn’t be happier!
