In January this year, Highsnobiety reported that Nintendo was working on a series of cardboard toys for its Switch console called Nintendo Labo. The kit, which effectively turned the Switch into a mini arcade, dropped last month, and thanks to Ariana Grande, we can now see it in action.

Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 24-year-old singer gave a jaunty performance of her latest single “No More Tears Left to Cry,” which is set to feature on her upcoming fourth studio album, Sweetener.

Grande is backed by Fallon and house band The Roots, with everyone donning boiler suits and rocking out with the cardboard creations. From keys to percussion to lead guitar, each quirky instrument is constructed with a Nintendo Switch at its heart.

To hear Grande’s sweet vocals and see how the unorthodox instruments held up, check out the video above.
