Candy Cane-Grams: As Sweetener Tour Returns, Ariana Grande's Officially in the Holiday Spirit
Are you "Wit It This Christmas?" Ariana Grande got into the holiday spirit over the weekend, by adding a Christmas section to the kickoff of the latest leg of her ongoing Sweetener World Tour.
At a tour stop in Uniondale, New York on Saturday (Nov. 9), the superstar launched into a medley of songs from her 2015 Christmas & Chill EP -- including "Wit It This Christmas," "December," "Winter Things" and "True Love" -- as well as modern holiday classic "Santa Tell Me."
During the latter song, Grande surprised lucky fans by throwing wrapped gifts into the crowd, including Tiffany earrings and a Starbucks gift card signed by the star, according to fan tweets. Adding to the show's holiday spirit, Grande and her back-up dancers performed closing number "Thank U Next" wearing the Mean Girls-referencing sexy Santa costumes on display in the music video for the No. 1 hit.
In tandem with her performance, Christmas & Chill re-entered the iTunes chart, much to Grande's unabashed glee. "Oh my god. my favorite body of work," she tweeted. "She is rising from the dead ! thank u new listeners of christmas n chill and hello everyone that is just now discovering it. i'm so happy."
