Ariana Grande and Seth MacFarlane joined Apple Music’s “Carpool Karaoke” guest star ranks last night and belted out a well-known Broadway tune, “Suddenly Seymour” from “The Little Shop of Horrors.” The pair cruised the streets with MacFarlane behind the wheel and Grande happily riding shotgun. You also can’t miss the “Audrey”-style Venus Fly Trap plant riding in the backseat part of the time.
MacFarlane has carved such a name for himself in the comedy world as Emmy-winning “Family Guy” creator and writer, director, and star of “Ted” and “Ted 2” that it’s hard to remember he’s also a Grammy-nominated artist who has performed in iconic venues like Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall.
Grande is known for her powerhouse vocals and empowering pop songs that are meant to uplift and inspire. While singing Show Tunes may have seemed like an unlikely musical route for these two to take, they definitely pulled it off and actually did a great job! Grande’s voice floated like silk around MacFarlane’s. They both sang with passion and their voices blended well.
A slight hitch occurred when MacFarlane suddenly stopped as Grande was about to go for a high note. Like true professionals, they recovered well and both ended with a long, well-sustained note.
You can check out their full “Suddenly Seymour” performance in the attached video. Stay tuned to AXS for updates on Ariana Grande and Seth MacFarlane and for ongoing “Carpool Karaoke” coverage.
