Reviewers of the tour performances have praised Grande’s vocals and ability to convey emotion in the songs but found the concerts to be over-produced: “some judicious editing would’ve elevated the evening from surprising to satisfying and possibly even shockingly good. As it is, Grande is so busy piling on the spectacle she neglects to highlight the one thing – those deceptively powerful pipes – setting her apart from her contemporaries.” The tour earned $14 million in its first 25 performances, selling 290,699 tickets.

At the age of ten, Grande co-founded the South Florida youth singing group Kids Who Care, which performed for charitable fund-raising events, raising over $500,000 for charities in 2007 alone.
