It was a star-studded night on the season finale of ABC's Greatest Hits, featuring some of music's biggest talents such as Flo Rida, John Legend, Sheryl Crow, Nelly, Celine Dion and Ariana Grande, whose standout performance stole the show.

Grande performed a medley of Whitney Houston's classic tracks, adding her honeyed vocals to "How Will I Know" and "Queen of the Night," Billboard reported. The ever-rising songstress tweeted her excitement for the show prior to taking the stage, writing, "honored to be paying homage to my angel."

Her iconic performance comes on the heels of Grande's latest album, Dangerous Woman, released in late May, as well as several new tracks posted to SoundCloud. Grande shared the original track to her single "Honeymoon Ave." on SoundCloud on Tuesday, along with never-before-heard song "Voodoo Love."

In July, Grande shared an emotional track with Victoria Monét titled "Better Days," an ode to the Black Lives Matter movement.
