Ariana Grande's 'SNL' Promos Feature Plenty of Problems with Taran Killam [WATCH]

Ariana Grande is taking over Saturday Night Live this weekend (March 12), acting as the show's host and musical guest. Ahead of her big weekend, the "Focus" singer's SNL promos with Taran Killam have arrived online, and let's just say... there's a "Problem" or two.

The first problem for Grande comes, of course, because of her last name, which shares the size with a Starbucks drink. After a grande cup of joe is delivered to 30 Rock, Killam mistakenly claims it's for the pop superstar... but well, she doesn't always follow her name when it comes to her caffeine fix.

Other problems for Killam and Grande include their difference in stature and deciding exactly which cloud Grande lives on in Manhattan.

But, the biggest problem of all is the lyrics to her massive Iggy Azalea-featuring hit "Problem."

"I've got one less, one less prom production," Killam sings, mistakenly quoting both the lyrics and overall theme of the song, which the longtime SNL cast member mistakes for being all about getting ready for a big high school prom.

Grande is set to host the Saturday, March 12 episode of SNL and debut two new songs on the show, "Dangerous Woman" and "Be Alright." The new singles (as well as "Focus") are set to appear on her new album Dangerous Woman, which is due to be released later this year.
