Ariana Grande has set Coachella on fire with many now coining the insanely popular music & arts fest, ARICHELLA. Grande performed her first of two headlining sets yesterday opening with “God is a Woman” and followed up with single “Bad Idea,” off her latest album.

The 25-year-old hit maker continued with “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” which samples one of the songs from *NSYNC’s 2000 album, No Strings Attached. In this performance, she brought out Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick to join her onstage. Justin Timberlake was not present.

But it didn’t stop there. The group went on to perform “Tearin’ Up My Heart” on stage as well.

Grande promoted the upcoming performance on Instagram days before the performance, singing a snippet of the old classic.

Joey Fatone shared a pre-set selfie that they took before performing and posted to his Instagram, thanking Grande for the opportunity to perform.

The pop star continued with songs “R.E.M”, “Be Alright”, “Sweetener” and “Side to Side”–bringing rapper Nicki Minaj out for the performance. They also performed their 2014 hit, “Bang Bang.”

She also brought out Diddy himself to perform a special rendition of “Mo Money Mo Problems” with Grande carrying Faith Evan’s vocals.

Grande’s set was nearly two hours long with her performing other songs like “7 Rings,” “Love Me Harder,” “breathin,” “Right There,” “NASA,” “goodnight n go,” “Into You,” “Dangerous Woman” and a slew of others. She ended her set with the wildly popular “thank u, next.”

Grande is only the fourth woman ever to headline Coachella, with only Björk, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé preceding her. She joins Childish Gambino and Tame Impala as the headliners this year.
