Ariana Grande has wowed fans YET again by pulling out all the stops for Coachella 2019...A time when there is no limit to how much face glitter, lace and tassels one can wear whilst enjoying performances from some of the hottest acts in the world.

Ariana, who was listed as a headliner alongside the likes of Childish Gambino and Tame Impala, sent fans into a complete FRENZY when she brought (most of) the legendary 90's boy band *NSYNC during her performance, with many fans taking to Twitter to share clips of the inconic performance.

With one fan writing, 'WHAT. A. MOMENT' [sic].

The band said to the crowd, “Coachella, this has been a dream of ours, thank you Ariana!”

Taking to Instagram, Joey Fatone shared what we will happily refer to as one of the BEST selfies of all time, including himself, J.C. Chasez, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick and Ariana. The singer captioned the photo, 'Thanks @arianagrande for having us ... was a great time and a chance to perform with my brothers once again ! #arianagrande #cochella2019' [sic].

Last Friday (12th April) the 'God Is A Woman' singer took to Instagram and Twitter to share various clips of her attending an *NSYNC concert when she was little. She loves a good throwback vid!

Fans could barely handle the levels of CUTENESS in the video, with one commenting, 'this is so emotional' [sic].

The star also took to Instagram on that same day to share a video of her singing along to 'Tearin' Up My Heart' by *NSYNC, which later turned out to be the timeless classic that the star revived on stage with the boys. She captioned the video, 'the best medicine 🖤 90s baby 🎧📹' [sic].

The posts followed on from Ariana sharing some 'terrifying' photos of her brain scans that highlight the effects of PTSD,

The 25-year-old also brought other superstars including Diddy and Nicki Minaj. Thank god for camera phones!

Diddy even took a moment to remember Ariana's ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who tragically died last year. The pop princess previously paid tribute to the late rapper on her 'Sweetener' tour, where she played his songs throughout the arena before she took to the stage.
