The "7 Rings" musician joined the iconic singer onstage for an unexpected duet at Streisand's Tuesday night (August 6) concert at the United Center in the Windy City. Together, the pair took on "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)," the funky, upbeat pop smash the 77-year-old superstar collaborated with the late Donna Summer in 1979.
As Billboard points out, the encounter should have come as no surprise at all. Just the day before (August 5) taking the stage, Streisand took to Instagram with a post-manicure photo of her and Grande after getting their nails done at the same shop in Chicago. "Made a new friend," the legendary performer captioned the image at the time.
The moment must have been particularly special for the 26-year-old, who once said she wishes to follow in the film star's footsteps in a 2013 interview. "A lot of my friends are partiers, but I've never really clicked with that," she said at the time. "I like Barbra Streisand, and when was the last time you saw Babs getting, like, turnt up? That's kind of the road that I, as a lady, would like to go down."
As seen in a number of fan-recorded videos online, Grande and Streisand had the time of their lives performing the duet — which proved to be a success, as the legend later tweeted with a selfie of the pair, "Secret’s out. Thank you @ArianaGrande."
