Ariana Grande‘s headlining set slayed at Coachella, and got an added boost by the long awaited reunion of 4/5ths of her favorite boy band … ‘NSYNC.
Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez joined Ariana on stage Sunday night during her song “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” — which samples an old ‘NSYNC hit — then kicked the nostalgia into high gear by performing “Tearin’ Up My Heart.”
We broke the story of the surprise collab, including the fact Justin Timberlake wasn’t going to be a part of it, but as you can see … Grande filled in nicely for him.
At one point she announced to the crowd … “I’ve been rehearsing my whole f***ing life for this moment.”
The big guest appearances during Ariana’s set didn’t stop with *NSYNC — Nicki Minaj also joined her and powered through some mic issues to do “Side by Side” and go out with a “Bang Bang.”
Diddy and Mase took the stage with Grande, too.
Looks like JT missed out, but in his defense … he just wrapped up his 115-show Man of the Woods tour the night before.
Maybe next year.
