'Ariana Grande at the BBC' special to tape on Sept. 7
UPI News Service, 08/31/2018
Ariana Grande will tape a BBC music and interview special in front of a studio audience in England on Sept. 7.
Davina McCall will host the one-hour program "Ariana at the BBC," which is scheduled to air in the fall.
"Since I've been asked to do this show... I have been worried that someone is going to call up and tell me they've made a mistake and chosen the wrong presenter, because this seems just too good to be true," McCall said in a statement Friday.
"Ariana Grande is such an incredible talent. She's very funny and incredibly kind and has achieved so much already in her career! I'm really excited about talking to her and, of course, hearing some of her amazing music."
Grande is set to perform at the funeral of legendary singer Aretha Franklin Friday.
The 25-year-old recording artist has been in the headlines lately due to the release of her latest album Sweetener and her whirlwind romance and engagement to "Saturday Night Live" player Pete Davidson.
