Grande set the tone, kicking things off with “God Is a Woman” — the hit second single from her fourth studio album Sweetner — before segueing into “Bad Idea,” her most recent single from the thank u, next album.
The singer then performed “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” a song that samples the No Strings Attached ‘NSYNC album track “It Makes Me Ill” — and, to the audience’s pleasure — Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick joined Grande on stage.
As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one night, the rest of Grande’s nearly 90-minute set also saw guest appearances from Nicki Minaj, Diddy and Mase.
Minaj joined the Grande on stage for their collaborations “Side to Side” and “Bang Bang” while Diddy and Mase appeared to pay tribute to The Notorious B.I.G., performing “Mo Money Mo Problems” with the headliner singing Faith Evans’ verse.
Grande finished the evening with a fitting encore of smash hit “thank u, next.”
