Ariana Grande has cancelled her upcoming appearance on Saturday Night Live, over emotional reasons.

The 25-year-old has had a tough few months after ex Mac Miller died, following a suspected drug overdose.

And the Dangerous Woman singer has been replaced by Kanye West for the episode in question.

Executive producer Lorne Michaels confirmed the news during an appearance on Cadence13s Origins podcast, explaining: We had Ariana drop out for emotional reasons two days ago.

And then Kanye stepped up, so hell be there.

It looks like Yeezy has been working hard on his performance, with a string of surprise guests.

According to TMZ, the Gold Digger rapper has reached out to Kid Cudi, Lil Pump and Teyana Taylor to get involved, with the show itself being hosted by Adam Driver.

Include Kim Kardashian in that line-up and were completely sold.

Seeing as Ye has been seen backstage in a Make America Great Again cap, were guessing all eyes will be on what the 41-year-old produces.
