The reign of Ariana Grande continues! 

The pop songstress is a nine-time Billboard Music Awards nominee this year, and she hit the stage during Wednesday's ceremony for an epic performance of her hit, "7 Rings." 

Rocking thigh-high boots, a pink jacket over a pink latex bra and skirt, she appeared on stage on a low-rider covered in graffiti before bringing some sensual dance moves to her live rendition of the sexy anthem. Projected behind her and her backup dancers, a street scene was shown featuring rows of suburban homes before a massive moon. 

She's definitely borrowing elements from the track's music video but they still manage to elevate the sultry tune. As the song wound down, she returned to the car and struck a seductive pose as it was lowered down into the stage.

Grande has dominated the Billboard charts over the last year, with both Sweetener and Thank U, Next topping the Billboard 200 in less than six months. The latter's title track marked Grande's first chart-topper on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, with "7 Rings" following suit. 

Last month, Grande celebrated another major career milestone: headlining Coachella. As part of her performance, the singer made a splash with surprise appearances from 'N Sync and Justin Bieber. More on that below.
