People can't get over how much Paige Niemann looks like Ariana Grande.
It's official. Ariana Grande has another doppelgänger. Paige Niemann is taking over TikTok and she looks exactly like the superstar.
Celebrity lookalikes are nothing new. Just this year, a YouTuber went viral after people mistook her for Zendaya, then another one broke the internet by recreating Kylie Jenner's Instagram photos and, last but not least, Lili Reinhart found her celebrity twin. It seems like almost everyone famous has a clone roaming the planet.
Now the internet is losing it over another wild lookalike. People can't get over how much teenage TikTok star Paige Niemann looks like Ariana Grande. It's uncanny.
In fact, the resemblance is so terrifying that it's caught the attention of Ariana herself and her reaction is priceless.
TikTok users will likely already know Paige Niemann. The 14-year-old has over 1.6 million followers on the platform thanks to her scarily accurate Ariana Grande impersonations. The social media star regularly uploads videos in which she dresses like Ariana and mimes along to her. She's also popular on Instagram and often posts selfies which look like Ariana took them. Paige is actually one of many teens imitating Ariana on social media but few look as much like Ari as her.
Last week (Nov 22), Paige made her way to Twitter when an Ariana fan posted one of her recent videos with the caption: "I just know Ariana is terrified..." In the video, Paige is styled similar to how Ariana dresses today and she mimes along to Ari as Cat Valentine from scene in Victorious. The clip quickly gained over 11 million views because people were so shook by how similar Paige is to Ari.
People then found old videos of Paige without makeup and started to question whether Paige looks like Ariana or if she is just amazing at styling herself like her.

Two days later (Nov 24), Ari caught wind of the tweet and replied: "i just wonder whyyyy the cat voice / dialogue. i am sure she is the sweetest sweet sweetheart forreal !! but it’s definitley bizarre seeing people blend the two worlds lmao." The fan then responded: "It’s funny because you’re lying" and Ari tweeted back: "i-.... BE NICE."
Someone also tweeted Ariana by writing: "literally every vid i see of someone trying to somewhat “mimic” u it’s ALWAYS a connection w cat valentine instead of the actual you" and Ari responded: "Oof". It looks like, in the politest way possible, Ariana isn't the biggest fan of impersonations that involve Cat Valentine.

Almost all of Paige's videos use Cat dialogue, so maybe she'll change it up in future.
