Watch Ariana Grande’s “One Love Manchester” Benefit Concert In Full & HD: Favorite Performances?
Ariana Grande got her wish fulfilled: to give back to Manchester.
She held her “One Love” benefit concert on Sunday (June 4), featuring guest performances from Justin Bieber, The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Marcus Mumford, Niall Horan, Little Mix, Katy Perry, Take That, Imogen Heap, Pharrell Williams, Robbie Williams, and Liam Gallagher.
All the proceeds from tickets sold will go to an emergency fund created by the British Red Cross to support the families of the victims of the Manchester terrorist attack from May 22.
Which were my favorite moments from the benefit concert? There were many, but I will only stress two now: Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande’s joint performance of “Don’t Dream It’s Over”, and evidently; Ariana’s emotional live rendition of “One Last Time”, which she got to perform with all of her guest artists on stage (sans Justin Bieber, who decided to leave the venue early because… he got things to do? Places to fly to? Apparently not. He simply didn’t want to stay until the concert finished. He didn’t want to support Ariana during the “One Last Time” finale performance. But he got time to go to a bar and get drunk at night that same day in Manchester.)

Oh well. Putting this upsetting thing to the side, I’m so glad the “One Love Manchester” concert was a big success and lots of money was collected to support the families of the victims of the terrorist attack. And I was moved to see Ariana so moved. She was on the verge of tears in multiple occasions during her set.
