During the 15-minute episode, the talented duo joined forces for performances of WICKED's "Loathing", LITTLE SHOP OF HORROR's "Suddenly Seymour", "10 Minutes Ago" from Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA and the Frank Sinatra classic 'Nothing In Common'.
In between numbers, they discussed their shared love of musical theater, with Grande revealing, "I was a huge theater nerd my whole life, still am. It's what I put on when I need to restore my soul and heal myself. It brings you back to home." Agreed MacFarland, "It's very earnest music. I was raised on that stuff.
Grande also admitted her love for a certain Frankie Valli musical, sharing "You want to hear something embarrassing? I used to wait outside the JERSEY BOYS theater in line every f**kin day." She also tells MacFarlane, "One of my dream roles is to play Elphaba. I would do it tomorrow!"
