Ariana Grande's career didn't happen overnight, but at the rate she's going today we know she thinks this is worth the wait. Follow this pop star's journey to superstardom in a career timeline we put together for you!
The Battery's Down (2009)
The Battery's Down is a musical comedy series that follows an actor's struggle to make it big in the Big Apple. Ariana appeared in the Bad, Bad News episode of the series.
The following year, Ariana appeared on the Nickelodeon series Victorious, which starred another Candy cover girl—Victoria Justice. Here, she played the character of Cat Valentine (yup, it's where her character began!), one of Victoria's character's friends.
Ariana next appeared in iCarly, which starred Miranda Cosgrove (who you can remember from The School of Rock) for the iParty With Victorious episode of the show.
Snowflake, the White Gorilla (2011)
There's no doubt that Ariana has one of the best voices in the music industry. So it's only fitting that once in her life, she'll be asked to dub an animated series/movie. Ariana's voice was used to give life to Snowflake in the English dubbed version of the Spanish film, Snowflake, the White Gorilla.
Winx Club (2011)
Ariana then lent her voice to the character of Princess Diaspro for 4 episodes of the Winx Club, an Italian animated TV series which was aired in Nickelodeon.
Between everything she was doing then, Ariana appeared as contestant on Nickelodeon's children's game show Brainsurge.
Yours Truly (2013)
Did you know that Ariana's debut album, Yours Truly, was 3 years in the making? The hitmaker launched her first record with the song "The Way," which skyrocketed to the top of the charts.
Ariana worked again with Jennette McCurdy for this Nickelodeon film, where she plays a gymnast who's part of a teenage heist—all done for a rare, high-value baseball card.
Sam & Cat (2013)
After playing Cat Valentine in Victorious and iCarly, Ariana returns as the character in the spin-off/sequel Sam & Cat with Jennette McCurdy. Sadly, after one season and a few controversies later, looks like the Sam & Cat's on its way to cancellation.
Family Guy (2014)
ICYDK, Ariana also voiced an Italian girl in the adult cartoon Family Guy.
My Everything (2014)
This year looks like a big one for the 21-year-old hitmaker. For her sophomore album, My Everything, she collaborated with artists like Iggy Azalea, Zedd, and Harry Styles for her songs. My Everything is set for release this August.
