Other winners at the event held at the Stage Theater in Berlin, Germany are actress Uma Thurman and former F1 driver Michael Schumacher.
Ariana Grande was among the winners at the 66th Bambi Awards. The singer took home the Best Newcomer trophy during the ceremony held on Thursday, November 13 at the Stage Theater in Berlin, Germany.
Grande, who rose to fame for playing Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's "Victorious" and its spin-off "Sam & Cat", already has released two albums. Both peaked at No. 1 on Billboard 200. This year, she dominated the singles charts with her hits "Problems", "Break Free" and "Bang-Bang".
"Ariana Grande is a young singer with a powerful voice who knows how to combine pop, soul, hip-hop and electronic music to form an irresistible dance sound. Her hits set new records on iTunes, her concerts sell out and she has millions of fans on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Her unmistakeable voice and unusual range spanning five octaves make her one of the exceptional talents of our time," the Bambi jury explained why the pint-sized diva deserved the award.
Another international star who won a Bambi in music field was U2. The Irish rockers were the winners in the Music International category. "U2 create rock music with attitude and poetic texts that Bono, their charismatic singer, verbalises with his unique voice. Guitarist The Edge, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. provide the unmistakeable U2 sound of strong rhythms and melodies," the jury said of the group's win.
