Ariana Grande had a huge surprise under her sleeve during her weekend two set at the 2019 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The “Thank U, Next” singer, 25, brought out her friend Justin Bieber moments before the encore of her Sunday, April 21, performance at the Indio, California, festival. The “Friends” crooner, also 25, took the stage to perform his 2015 single “Sorry.”
“I haven’t been on stage in, like, two years,” Bieber pointed out to the audience. “I came out here, [and] I had no idea I was going to be on this stage tonight. Absolutely no idea. I wore this fly outfit not knowing that I was going to be on stage.”
After reiterating that he had not performed in public in a while, the Grammy winner added, “I had to get my groove back, I had to get my swag back, you know what I’m saying? So, thank you so much, Coachella. Thank you so much, Ariana Grande. We love you so much, man. Thank you so much.”
Bieber drove the crowd wild when he delivered one final message: “By the way, album coming soon.”
