Lady Gaga? Madonna? Meet 17-year-old Ariana Grande. She's the star of Nickelodeon's hit show Victorious (which means Lourdes, Rocco, David and Mercy would know who she is... if they're even allowed to watch TV.)

Ariana decided to face down the comparisons between Lady Gaga's top song "Born This Way" and Madonna's "Express Yourself" by making a mashup video.

And you know what? It's pretty amazing. Check it out!

On YouTube Ariana writes, "This is an homage to one of the greatest artists of all time and my idol, Madonna, whom I've been listening to my whole life, and another great artist that I admire so much, Lady Gaga. Both of these songs resonate with me musically, lyrically, and inspire me to bring my own sound into it. The messages in both of these songs are incredibly empowering and I wanted to share them with the girls and boys who look up to me. Hope you enjoy."
