His comments came shortly after Grande stunned the crowd with a cover of Franklin's hit, "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," which she performed with a live band and backup choir.
"I've got to apologise because I've got to brush up," Bishop Ellis III said as he pulled Grande in close. "My 28-year-old daughter tells me, 'Dad, you are old at 60.' When I saw Ariana Grande on the program, I thought that was a new something at Taco Bell. Girl, let me give you all the respect"
Grande, however, played it cool and laughed off the bizarre and, again, very public interaction.
After all, there are other, more pressing awkward interactions she must focus on, like the fact that her fiancé Pete Davidson just met Hillary Clinton, the inspiration behind one of his wildest tattoos. Oh, and her ex-boyfriend Big Sean happens to be in the audience. On top of all that, Grande just gave a performance so immaculate, we should all be embarrassed. Watch it, below.
