AceShowbiz - Ariana Grande's headlining set at the 2019 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is undoubtedly one that people most anticipate the most. The hype builds up even more when it's rumored that the former Nickelodeon alum will bring NSYNC to her set, and the rumors turn out to be true! She did join forces with the group when she took the stage at the festival on Sunday, April 14.
The "Thank U, Next" hitmaker kicked off her performance with a rendition of "God Is a Woman", bringing out her signature "The Last Supper"-inspired set. She then launched into performances of her other hits such as "Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" before welcoming NSYNC to the stage. Not all members were present during the performance though, as Justin Timberlake was missing from the group.
JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass and Chris Kirkpatrick teamed up with Ariana for a performance of "It's Tearing Up My Heart". They harmonize, "It's tearin' up my heart when I'm with you/ But when we are apart, I feel it too/ And no matter what I do, I feel the pain/ With or without you." After thanking Ariana for the opportunity to reunite at Coachella, the four men left the stage.
NSYNC apparently wasn't the only musician that Ariana invited to the stage. Following a performance of "Be Alright", she offered the festival goers a rendition of her collaboration with Nicki Minaj, "Side to Side", before the female emcee hit the stage to help her friend perform the song. The two then followed it up by belting out another of their collaborative track, "Bang Bang". Unfortunately, their other collaborator, Jessie J, didn't join them.
During the performance, Nicki noticeably forgot her lyrics, but Ariana managed to cover it up with her pitch perfect vocals.
Ariana's Coachella set is currently airing during the organizers' live streaming session on YouTube.
