Ariana Grande was also linked romantically with Nathan Sykes, but she’s denied that too.

Ariana Grande told Access Hollywood Live: "No, no - we're not dating. He’s the sweetest. He’s amazing. I have to say, he’s one of the most talented vocalists I’ve ever heard in my life. And live, all the time, he’s like, spot on."

Ariana Grande knocked out pop impresario Scooter Braun so much told MTV News “She’s so little and petite — when she opens her mouth it’s kind of unbelievable that it’s coming from this little person. She reminds me of both Mariah [Carey] and Christina [Aguilera]. Christina was this young, petite girl with this gigantic voice and Ariana kind of has the same thing. And her tone and her range remind me of Mariah.”
