Ariana Grande made her live return to the UK last night, performing for the first time since the One Love Manchester concert.
The ‘Sweetener’ singer performed to an intimate crowd at London’s KOKO as part of Capital FM’s Up Close series. It saw her delivering a show that mixed some of her biggest hits with material from her newest album – which was released last month.
The 20-song set saw her opening with ‘raindrops (an angel cried)’, before continuing the run of new material with ‘blazed’ and ‘R.E.M’.
Although she continued to play the majority of her latest record ‘Sweetener‘, social media footage shows the huge reaction to an Acapella rendition of ‘One Last Time’ late on -which prompted mass singalongs.
Check out footage of the show below.
