Things aren't going great at Tidal right now, and it's trying to save itself with exclusive exclusive releases from the likes of Rihanna. But what if a power outage messed up their streams? As SNL humorously imagines, it's Chloe the intern (aka Ariana Grande) to the rescue. As glimpsed on the Tonight Show, the diminutive pop star has got a gigantic voice and flawlessly belted out hits from the likes of Britney Spears, Shakira and Celine Dion until the music was restored.

SNL did a very similar skit about Pandora in 2012 with Bruno Mars (and was mocked on Twitter for copying it), but it's going to take more than Ariana Grande to help Tidal, which just fired its CFO and COO. You can watch her try her best in the video below, but the Hulu stream is geo-blocked outside the US unless you have a (working) VPN.
