“Ariana was so fun and sweet,” one eyewitness told E! News. “She was interacting with the fans so much and was having the cutest moments on and off camera with the coaches. She was so sweet to anyone who came up to her from the production team, as well. Ariana and Kelly Clarkson were taking selfies. It was so cute.”

As for how she’s getting along with the other panelists, one insider said that Grande and country music star Blake Shelton “are so funny together.”

Another onlooker expressed a similar sentiment, revealing that the newlywed “seemed excited and interested in how everything worked.” In addition, Shelton, Clarkson, and Legend “seemed completely welcoming towards her,” even if they did clown on her a couple of times, as the second onlooker described it. We can’t wait to see what kind of witty, comedic banter Grande brings to the popular NBC singing competition.
