Family is what matters most, Ariana Grande has shown. The One Last Time singer attended the American Music Awards on Sunday night – where she performed and accepted a prize – and turned the star-studded evening into a family affair as she took her grandmother as her date.

Nonna Grande, as she is affectionately called, was on hand to cheer her 22-year-old granddaughter to victory.

The pop princess was performing her new hit Focus on stage and had dear Nonna bopping along in the audience.

Addressing the crowds, the pint-sized singer gave her best Nonna Grande impression and explained how her grandmother had basically ensured her win.

Recalling Nonna's words, she mimicked: "Ariana I went on the computer. I voted, so I think you'll win."

"Thank you! Ew I'm crying," she laughed. "I love you guys so, so much. Thank you to my family, who's here tonight. I think I owe a lot of this to my Nonna, who made sure to remind me that she voted."
