Ariana Grande Brought *NSYNC Out During Her Coachella Performance & It Was ’90s PerfectionApril 15, 2019
Ariana Grande has been going strong since the release of Sweetener in August of 2018. She’s released another whole other album, thank u, next, started her tour, and now performed at her very first Coachella. As the youngest female headliner ever, Grande was sure to make a splash, but her set definitely exceeded expectations thanks, in part, to a little help from her friends. Ariana Grande performed with *NSYNC at Coachella on Saturday, April 14, and gave fans a ’90s reunion that brought the house down in Indio, California.
Grande brought out four members of the legendary boy band, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass, to perform with her. The group joined the pop star onstage for a remix of "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored," which famously samples *NSYNC’s "It Makes Me Ill." And then, in what can only be described as a pop dream, Grande joined the group for a performance of their breakout hit, "Tearin’ Up My Heart." She even joined in on the choreography!
While this was supremely exciting for fans of the band, it’s not that shocking. It’s been a long time coming — ever since Grande released Thank U, Next, and "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored" in February.
Plus, Grande has been dropping major hints on social media in the days leading up to her Coachella performance. On Thursday, April 11, she shared a video of herself at an *NSYNC concert when she was a child on Twitter and Instagram.
The next day, on April 12, she posted a video of herself jamming out to the tune "Tearin’ Up My Heart" in her dressing room, with the caption "the best medicine 90s baby."
In an attempt to get fans hyped pre-performance on Sunday, Chasez tweeted out a cryptic tweet, "Mic check, mic check one… two… is this thing on?!?" To which Grande just replied with, "…… sure is."
More to come…
