Production sources tell us Ariana was scheduled to appear on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Falon" Thursday. but she was only going to do a comedy skit.

The 25-year-old USA star brought the house down last night with a hastily-arranged and emotional rendition of Aretha's 1967 hit (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. She's so special. I feel sad but really inspired and celebratory.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's whirlwind engagement just keeps getting sweeter ― and "Sweetener". Sometimes you find yourself in a room and you're like, what am I doing in this room?

Aretha Franklin - Nobody like you
No one has ever given us pleasure with such full-throated abandon as Aretha Franklin did, and does. It featured a close-up image of Franklin and a still photo of LaBelle singing in the background.

The two weren't dating, they weren't even pals ― but her 2016 appearance on Davidson's show, "Saturday Night Live" clearly sparked something in the pop star.

At another point in the song, Ari sings QUOTE, "This is for everybody / Babe, you gotta take care of your body, yuh yuh / Ain't no time to deny it, that is why we talking about it". "She called me one time, it was one time only, and she goes, 'Hi, its Aretha.' I'm like, 'Franklin?'" According to Grande, Franklin asked if she could send her a recording that her grandson made, but "didn't know how" to text the MP3, so a package ended up arriving months later in the mail. I'm not crushy. But I left and I like jokingly said to my tour manager, I was like, "I'm marrying him".

We're told when Ariana left the stage she broke down in tears.
