Ariana Grande has stunned fans with an incredible Coachella performance during which she was joined by NSYNC and Nicki Minaj.
Grande opened up with “God Is a Woman” before transitioning into “Bad Idea.” She then launched into a performance of “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.”
It wasn’t long before Grande was joined on stage by NSYNC—minus Justin Timberlake—for a rousing performance of the group’s classic hit, “It’s Tearing Up My Heart.”
Ariana Grande and NSYNC had hinted at the performance
Both Grande and the members of NSYNC had hinted that they would be performing together in a series of cryptic tweets.
JC Chasez tweeted: “Mic check, mic check one… two… is this thing on?!?”
Grande then quoted the tweet aid said: “….sure is.”
“I’ve been rehearsing my whole motherf***ing life for this moment. Make some noise for NSYNC!”

When NSYNC came out on stage, Grande said: “I’ve been rehearsing my whole motherf**king life for this moment. Make some noise for NSYNC!”
She was later joined on stage by Nicki Minaj for a performance of “Bang Bang” and “Side to Side”—however, the pair appeared to experience technical issues with Minaj apparently losing her in-ear audio during the performance.
Later in her wide-ranging set, she performed “No Tears Left to Cry” and “Thank U, Next.”
