Katy Perry lauds Ariana Grande’s exceptional vocal talents. Speaking to EXTRA about season 22 winner Abi Carter, the former American Idol judge reminisced about praising Grande’s singing prowess years ago.

Reflecting on Grande’s vocal performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Perry emphasized that Grande’s voice stands out in pop music, echoing her previous sentiment that Grande is the best singer of their generation.

During the 19-season tenure of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ariana Grande made multiple appearances. On one occasion in 2018, the two-time Grammy-winning artist performed “Breathin” from her Sweetener album live on television for the first time. Additionally, she showcased her hit single “thank u, next” during the same appearance on the show.

In January, Ariana Grande released her seventh studio album, “Eternal Sunshine,” following the success of her chart-topping single “yes, and?” The album enjoyed a two-week stint at the pinnacle of the Billboard 200 chart. Additionally, upon its release, “Eternal Sunshine” became the most-streamed album on Spotify in a single day in 2024, as confirmed by the streaming platform in March.

In an April TikTok post, the Wicked star marked the one-month milestone of her latest album by expressing gratitude to her fans, saying, “thank you for your love.” She hinted at the beginning of a new era for her album, suggesting that there’s much more to come within the “eternal sunshine” cycle, and expressed excitement for what lies ahead.

During her Extra interview, Perry confirmed her preparation for the release of her next album, following her departure from American Idol after seven seasons. She hinted at the forthcoming music, which is currently without a release date, during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in February when she announced her exit from Idol. Perry teased about her plans for the year ahead, suggesting it will be an exciting time for all popstar artists.
