Ariana Grande To Perform At SLIMEFEST 2014? Nickelodeon Star To Tour Australia In September 2014

The Australian news website and the global news provider United Press International (UPI) are reporting the exciting news that Nickelodeon Star Ariana Grande ("Sam & Cat", "Victorious") has announced that, to celebrate the release of her upcoming second studio album "My Everything, scheduled to be released on Monday 25th August 2014, the chart-topper will be heading down under to hold a tour of Australia in September 2014!

Although currently unconfirmed, the Nick Star news could mean that Ariana Grande may be one of the performers at Nickelodeon Australia's upcoming SLIMEFEST 2014 concerts, the BIGGEST kid-powered, star filled family slimefest of the year, which Nick AU will be holding in two locations this year, Melbourne and Sydney, on Friday 26th and Saturday 28th September 2014, respectively!

As part of her tour of Australia, Ariana is expected to perform her latest hit single "Break Free" which is holding firm in the ARIA top 5 after two weeks.

The actress and singer already has a strong Australian connection, including with Aussie musical collaborator Iggy Azalea, who featured on the American singers single "Problem".

The news comes on the heels of Grande's first number one hit in the UK for her song "Problem" which recently made history as the first track ever to reach number one in the combined (download and sales) singles chart! "Problem" also reached the No.1 spot on the iTunes charts in more than 50 countries around the world, including Australia.

If Ariana will be performing at SLIMEFEST 2014, she'll be joining the Australian pop singer Cody Simpson, the Sydney-based all-male hip-hop dance & pop music group and "Australia's Got Talent" winners Justice Crew, and the Australian singer-songwriter and dancer Timomatic!

Nickelodeon Australia's second annual SLIMEFEST event, SLIMEFEST 2013, featured headliners including Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush and the US duo Heffron Drive, which consists of Big Time Rusher Kendall Schmidt and BTR's current guitarist, Dustin Belt.
