Comedian Julia Finkelstein has the internet doing a double take. Her impression of pop sensation Ariana Grande is so on point, for a second, you wonder if the videos are dubbed or doctored in some way.
She’s that good.
Finkelstein has been dropping Grande impersonation videos for a minute now, but last week, her parody of Vogue’s 73 Questions video series starring her as the “No Tears Left To Cry” singer is going viral—and for good reason.
Finkelstein absolutely nails Grande’s cutesy mannerisms, her sometimes hard to understand singing style, and her occasional thoughtful and enlightening takes.
Last month, Finkelstein parodied Grande discussing her split with SNL’s Pete Davidson and shared how their pet pig, Piggy Smalls, will see his parents.
Before that, the comedian impersonated Grande opening up about her no.1 hit album, Sweetener.
“It’s called Sweetener because I just wanted something that someone can kind of listen to in the morning and stir into their coffee…”
She even impersonates Grande impersonating other artists including Celine Dion and Britney Spears.
In a recent interview with Refinery 29, Finkelstein revealed how she discovered her talent for impersonating the songstress.
“One of her songs came on, there were like a few of her riffs,” Finkelstein said. “Each one of them just sounds… where it’s like gibberish, so I always impersonate that but in her voice, so it genuinely stems from the riff.”
Finklestein also shared the key to getting Grande down.
The first is the eyebrow movements, which the comedian described to the outlet as “worried.” Then there is the jaw, which she says must be prominent and clenched. Finally, Grande’s signature “yuh,” a noise Grande frequently makes in her songs that “really comes from the back of the throat.”
So now, how do we get Julia on Ellen?!
