2013 AMAs: Ariana Grande Shows Her Power Vocals On “Tattooed Heart”

Ariana Grande let her voice take center stage at the 2013 American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (Nov. 24) night. The 20-year-old Florida native performed her slow, doo-wop single, “Tattooed Heart,” off her debut Yours Truly. It was Grande’s first time performing at the AMAs, given her abrupt rise to fame in the last year. Following the success of her breakthrough single “The Way,” which features Mac Miller, Grande’s Yours Truly album took the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Watching her AMA performance, it’s obvious Grande deserves all the attention she’s been getting. Watch her sing like a coming-of-age diva in the video above.

Grande was up for Best New Artist at the 2013 American Music Awards, which she won.
