Ariana Grande made history with her headlining Coachella performance or as they are dubbing it as #Arichella for weekend one of two as the youngest artist to headline Coachella. Grande is also only the fourth woman to ever headline Coachella, after Björk (twice, in 2002 and 2007), Lady Gaga (2017) and Beyoncé (2018).

Grande’s weekend one of two performance included a star-studded lineup of surprised guests throughout her Coachella set including Nicki Minaj, *NSYNC, Diddy, and Mase.

Not only were her surprise guests incredible, but her setlist was full of her hit songs like “God is a woman,” “Love Me Harder,” “Break Free,” “Breathin’,” “Into You,” “One Last Time,” “Dangerous Woman” and of course her latest hits “no tears left to cry,” “thank u, next,” “monopoly” and “7 rings.”

*NSYNC launching the surprise guest list with a full choreographed performance of their 1997 classic hit “Tearin’ Up My Heart” in which the singer expressed her excitement for the performance, which you can read more about HERE. “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” samples an old ‘NSYNC hit “It Makes Me Ill” from their album, No Strings Attached, So it only made sense to bring them out for a collab on-stage immediately following the performance of that song.

Nicki Minaj performing “Side to Side,” with Grande, also singing their 2014 collab, “Bang Bang” together. Sadly Grande and Minaj didn’t perform their latest collaborative effort of “Bed.”

Diddy and Mase joined Grande to perform Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money Mo Problems,” with Grande singing Faith Evans’ parts in the song. They ended their performance shouting out those who couldn’t be here today including B.I.G., Tupac, Mac Miller, Nipsey and more to pay homage to those we lost through the years during their collaborative performance.
