This is How Ariana Grande Remembered Mac Miller on the Coachella Stage

As she prepped to storm the stage during one of the biggest music festivals in the country, Coachella 2019, Ariana Grande had Mac Miller in her heart. In backstage photos taken at the art and music festival, Ariana wore a Pittsburgh Steelers jersey, a subtle, heartfelt reminder of Mac Miller’s beloved hometown football team.

It was in 2018 that Grande and Miller attended Coachella together, marking their final public outings as a couple before their May 2018 split. Following her surprise appearance as DJ Kygo was playing his set, Miller tweeted that he was very proud of her and welcomed her back as he missed her. In September that same year, Miller died from a drug overdose. Ariana, 25, shared her grieving journey with fans, with special memorial anniversaries on social media and included Miller’s catalogue of music on her Sweetener Tour.

It’s no surprise the singer insisted on honoring her former love with the Steelers jersey during such a major career milestone. Ariana reflected on what it meant to bring back *NSYNC together once again as she performed her Coachella set, calling Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez, and Lance Bass, the kindest human beings around. It could really go any which way when meeting childhood heroes, but that no one has ever been cooler, kinder, lovelier or sillier to be around, she gushed on Instagram. She wondered how they sounded and danced exactly like they did when she and her mom followed them around on tour, when she was just five years old. She thanked all of them for their time and energy and said that she loved them forever.

As if a dazzling set, theatrics, guest appearances, tons of hits and awe-inspiring choreography weren’t enough, the diva also changed dresses multiple times, giving her fans an unexpected fashion show. The songstress delivered the show exactly how they wanted it and sang all their favorite songs, omitting no top track from the set. Grande put her dancing shoes on, tearing up the stage with an impressively choreographed performance.
