Watch Ariana Grande make surprise appearance at Coachella

'No Tears Left To Cry' goes even harder live.

Ariana Grande made a surprise appearance at the second weekend of Coachella, dropping into Kygo’s set to perform her new single.

Grande returned this week with ‘No Tears Left To Cry’, her first new single since last year’s Manchester Arena attack.

The song sees the 24-year-old opting for a downbeat gospel inspired introduction, before it later makes way for a hugely infectious chorus.


The singer performed the new single as well as a cover of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ – a track that’s been remixed by Kygo in the past. Watch footage of the Coachella performance below.

Speaking earlier this year, manager Scooter Braun also explained the huge emotional toll that the attack in Manchester had on Ariana Grande.

“When she found out that fans of hers had died, she was… so sad”, Braun revealed during an appearance on the Big Questions with Carl Fussman podcast

“She cried for days, she felt everything – every face they announced, every name, she wore on her sleeve. Every bit of emotion because that’s who she is. And the thing I will always remember is that she goes, ‘If I don’t do something, I’m not who I say I am to these people’”.

Last weekend Coachella saw Beyonce own the weekend, while Eminem also delivered a star-studded headline performance and The Weeknd treated the desert to some new material. The likes of St Vincent, Aurora and Cardi B also delivered stellar sets.

Fans heading to the Valley for the second consecutive weekend of the festival however, have been warned to delay their arrival if they’re planning to camp due to weather warnings of high winds blowing up dust and sand.
