Ariana Grande first performed Thank U, Next on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, accompanied by a dance routine that referenced the iconic movie The First Wives Club. The song quickly soared to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

After teasing behind-the-scenes images from the music video all week, Grande finally dropped the music video for Thank U, Next on Friday, November 30. Within 11 hours, at the time of this writing, the video has already been viewed over 32 million times on YouTube.

In the video, Grande is seen recreating iconic scenes from 2000s hit films "Legally Blonde," 13 Going On 30," "Bring It On" and "Mean Girls."

Celebrity cameos include Dynasty actress Elizabeth Gillies as Cady Heron (the role originally played by Lindsay Lohan) doing a Mean Girls walk down the high school hallway, and Jennifer Coolidge as her Legally Blonde character Paulette, learning to do the famous bend-and-snap move.

Mean Girls cast member Jonathan Bennett is seen playing his original character of Aaron Samuels, while musician Troye Sivan and Kris Jenner also appear.

Earlier this week, Grande released a four-part YouTube Original titled Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries.
