Grande channeled Catwoman with a cat-ear mask and all-black ensemble as she performed on a set designed to look like a city rooftop.

In the interview, Grande teased "The Boy is Mine" video, telling host Jimmy Fallon that the video stars Gossip Girl and You actor Penn Badgley.

"The video stars Penn Badgley, who I've been a fan of ... my entire life, so it was just so amazing to work with him. I'm such a fan," the singer said. "Super honored to have him."

"The Boy is Mine" appears on Grande's album Eternal Sunshine, released in March. The song is a reimagining of the 1998 hit by Brandy and Monica, who make a cameo in the video as news anchors.

In addition to her new music, Grande will star in Wicked, a two-part film adaptation of the Broadway musical and Gregory Maguire novel. The movie got a trailer and a shot-by-shot Lego version in May.
