Ariana Grande made a triumphant return to the stage on Sunday, June 4 in Manchester, where she performed at the One Love Manchester benefit concert at the Lancashire Cricket Club’s Old Trafford ground to a sprawling, sold-out crowd.
Joined by a star-studded lineup of international artists, including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell, Take That, Little Mix and more, Grande kicked off her own performance with the ’90s house-tinged Dangerous Woman banger “Be Alright,” complete with backup dancers and choreography, before segueing into her dance-pop anthem “Break Free.”
After some other performances from various artists, Grande returned to the stage with Victoria Monet, her Dangerous Woman Tour opener, to perform their socially-charged collaboration, “Better Days.” The pop star also teamed up with the Black Eyes Peas during the group’s performance of “Where Is the Love?”, taking over for Fergie‘s vocal on the emotional chorus.
She performed with the Parrs Wood High School Choir on “My Everything,” during which she started crying, following up the emotional performance with a duet of “The Way” with her beau, Mac Miller. Grande also joined her friend Cyrus for an ethereal duet of “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”
Later, Grande performed her tracks “Side to Side,” “Love Me Harder” and “One Last Time,” alongside all her co-performers. She closed the concert with an acoustic version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
