5. Ariana Grande and The Muses (Hercules)

Having a troubadour, à la Gilmore Girls, would be great, but let’s be honest, having The Muses from Hercules narrate your life in song was everyone’s dream at some point. By definition, The Muses are “Godesses of the Arts.” If Beyoncé is the Queen, then Ariana Grande would definitely be a goddess.

Fans first got a sense of how powerful Grande’s voice was when she was introduced on Nickelodeon’s Victorious. When she finally pursued her music career, she put out instant hits. In Hairspray Live! she went toe to toe with fellow powerhouse Jennifer Hudson in a duet of “Come so Far (Got so Far to Go)” and together they brought the house down.

There’s no question that Grande could handle the vocal challenge of The Muses’ songs. Her vocal range would allow her to hit the high belting notes, but also add a silkier low texture (though Thalia’s lowest notes can’t be beaten). Plus, Grande’s signature high ponytail gives her an iconic Muse look all her own.

If you still need convincing, check out her version of “Zero To Hero.” Ariana recorded the cover for 2015’s We Love Disney album, and performed the song live at the annual Disney Parks Christmas parade and celebration.
