Ariana Grande is well-known for her superb Celine Dion impression, but she's been perfecting it, Carpool Karaoke-style, from an early age.

The "thank u, next" pop star posted a clip on Instagram of her tiny toddler self singing along to the Canadian icon's single "The Reason" in the car — and it's almost pitch perfect.

As E! News pointed out, Dion's track dropped in 1997, when Grande was but four years old, so she could be around this age in the clip.

Grande posted another sweet moment of early car karaoke on Instagram, in a clip featuring her mother, Joan Grande. It's from the same album, Let's Talk About Love, but this time it's Dion's earnest, show-stopping duet with Barbra Streisand, "Tell Him."

"We still sing this," she captioned the post. "She's still barbara and still this stunning and cute if not more so."

Grande's mother responded with as much adorableness on Twitter. "Every mother’s question to their 4 year old daughter, “am I Celine or Barbra?” We are cute!" she tweeted.

The 25-year-old singer has performed her impression of Dion and other fellow female pop singers multiple times, notably on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live

Grande claimed during a 2016 appearance on Elvis Duran and The Morning Show that Dion was so into the SNL sketch that she told Grande, "When I saw you, I peed."

High praise.
