Ariana Grande reveals first time on Wicked set was 'most emotional day' of her life

The pop star plays Glinda alongside Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba in Jon M. Chu's upcoming two-part adaptation of the hit Broadway musical. Recalling her first time on set, Grande told Variety at the 2024 Met Gala, "My first day on set for Wicked was the most emotional day of my life. All I remember was holding hands with Cynthia and Jon and crying. And (Jon) saying, 'Welcome to Wicked.'"
