Ariana Grande headlined Coachella last night, and she pulled out all the stops for her set, singing 26 songs from her entire discography. Grande had four big guest stars—*NSYNC, minus Justin Timberlake, as rumored; Diddy; Mase; and Nicki Minaj. She, Diddy, and Mase performed a tribute to her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and other late hip-hop artists, including Nipsey Hussle, 2Pac, and Biggie. And she had four costume changes, with looks styled by Law Roach.
Fans thoroughly documented the night on social media. Here, everything that happened.
Grande had four different outfits, mostly consisting of crop tops and mini skirts with knee-high boots, which is really her signature look. There was a shimmery orange number:
A silky raspberry outfit with big puffy sleeves and a choker neck:
Minaj matched this look with her own leggings and crop top:
A white belted crop top and mini skirt with knee-high boots, which Diddy and Mase matched with their light ensembles:
And a sparkly silver crop top, skirt, and boots:
Grande’s Guest Stars
*NSYNC, without Justin Timberlake, were the first to join her. Where was Timberlake? He just wrapped up his tour in Connecticut the night before, making it hard for him to get all the way to Coachella in California and be present for rehearsals.
The boys joined her for her song “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” then mixed in their song “It Makes Me Ill.” Then, she accompanied them for their classic “Tearin’ Up My Heart”:
Minaj, meanwhile, joined Grande for their duets together, “Side to Side” and “Bang Bang.” Some fans noted Minaj seemed to forget her verses for “Bang Bang,” but it was still glorious:
Grande’s last guests were Diddy and Mase, who performed “Mo Money Mo Problems” with her as a tribute to late hip-hop artists Mac Miller (Grande’s ex-boyfriend), Nipsey Hussle, 2Pac, and Biggie.
Grande’s Singing, Dancing, and Stage
Grande impressed a lot of people on Twitter with her choreography with *NSYNC and during her own tracks.
Grande put her all into singing. A fan noted that during “Needy,” Grande cried, getting so into the song’s lyrics:
And to top off her vocals and great dancing, Grande performed behind a mesmerizing stage. The visuals were really wild during “NASA”:
And Pixar’s Eve and Wall-E even made a guest appearance during “Goodnight n Go”:
Celebs Watching Grande’s Show
