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.”
