Celebrities make the talk show rounds to promote their latest projects, from albums to movies — and even whiskey. They play games, sing songs, shoot short films and surprise their biggest fans to show off their best-loved sides, as well as highlight some hidden talents.
Here are some of the best television appearances of 2018.
Ariana Grande on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
It is no secret that Grande is incredible at celebrity impressions. The pop star took it one step further when she appeared on the Musical Genre Challenge segment on The Tonight Show. Her rendition of Drake‘s “God’s Plan” as a 90’s diva hit had the audience wishing there was a full version. Not to mention her goth-rock version of Kendrick Lamar‘s “Humble,” which was totally spot-on.
Cardi B on Saturday Night Live
Pregnancy speculation circulated around Cardi for a while after the “Bodak Yellow” rapper got engaged to Migos’ Offset. The rumors were confirmed during her second performance on SNL. While singing her new hit “Be Careful,” the camera zoomed out and you could see Cardi’s baby bump through her white dress.
