Inside Ariana Grande's stunning transformation: from meek Nickelodeon star to chart-topping singer

ARIANA Grande has become a household name in recent years as she abandoned her roots in acting and became one of the best voices of the music industry.

The iconic singer recently made her debut as the new judge for The Voice, following Nick Jonas' exit, and fans were left amazed as she took over the role seamlessly and many claimed she was "out of the show's league."

2007

Before becoming a rising star in Nickelodeon's Victorious, the Florida native was a regular teen with dark hair and child-like features.

She did start to get some singing experience at the time as she played around in the studio with cover songs.

2010

Ariana first appeared on the silver screen as she embodied Cat on the show Victorious, alongside Victoria Justice.

At the time, the 17-year-old began obsessively dyeing her hair bright red to suit her character and spoke in a softer tone of voice.

The TV star also lent her voice to sing a few songs but was often overshadowed by other cast members of the show.

2012

By 2012, Ariana ditched her bright red locks for darker ones.

At this time, the star began to rock her hair back as the constant dyeing of her hair caused it to get dehydrated and ultimately, break off.

2013

Ariana, who traded her pale skin for a bronzed look, started to explore her music career at this time as she then switched her look for her signature brunette.

She also began to wear her hair in her iconic ponytail so she could hide her damaged hair and add extensions.

Though unconfirmed, Ariana showed off a slimmer nose, hinting that she might have gotten a nose job.

2015

By 2015, Ariana made a name for herself as she collaborated with performers like Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, and Jessie J.

She also added to her signature look mini dresses and massive boots to give her a height boost.

2016

Ariana switched up her look by adding bangs.

She also switched up her styling for more serious looks consisting of dress pants, couture dresses, and puffer jackets.

2017

At this time, Ariana changed her look once more by consistently wearing oversized shirts as dresses and knee-high boots.

This was also a hard year for Ariana as her Manchester concert was bombed by Islamic extremists. Twenty-three people died and Ariana had to take a break to deal with the trauma.

2018

This year was not any better for the singer as she mourned the death of her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller.

The rapper had died from an accidental overdose five months after they ended their relationship and she had begun dating Pete Davidson.

At this time, Ariana started to cover her body in tattoos and was briefly engaged to the comedian before ultimately calling it quits.

2019

Ariana didn't change much in 2019 from the previous year but she dyed her hair even darker, seemingly going back to her roots.

She also kept up her signature look of short skirts and over-the-knee boots, while her music got more explicit and daring.

2020

The singer, like much of the world, went into quarantine due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.

However, she shocked the world when, within a few months of dating, she got engaged to boyfriend Darlton Gomez.

In the few times that she was spotted, she kept her high ponytail and dark locks intact.

2021

2021 has been a growing year for Ariana so far – who not only got married in a private ceremony – but began to change right in front of her fans' eyes.

The new judge for The Voice looks different as she cut back on tanning her skin, chopped her hair, and dyed it completely black.

The star has also sported plumper lips – adding more procedure to the rumored list of plastic surgery she may have gotten.
