Last night, Jimmy Fallon and Ariana Grande proved to the world that there's more than one way to skin a cat. Um...yeah. Or, more than one way to perform a rap song. On "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," the host and the singer got together to belt out "99 Problems," "Insane In The Brain," and "Thrift Shop," all as Broadway numbers.

Fallon, for some reason, donned a long blonde wig, and Grande just kind of killed it, in a very Billie Holiday type of way. We never knew that the line "this is fucking awesome" could be quite such a sensational moment in song.
