Ariana Grande was reportedly a last-minute replacement for Kanye West after the rapper backed out from Coachella 2019, but the pop titan proved on Sunday (April 14) that she was not just a back-up plan. With her string of dancers in-tow, the 25-year-old chart-topper brought hits (and plenty of them) to the annual Indio music affair and she celebrated her recent career highs with special guests Diddy, Nicki Minaj, and *NSYNC. If you weren't able to catch her headlining set in-person or via the festival's stream, iHeartRadio has your back with some hot shots from the pop spectacle. Scroll on!

She had four outfit changes.

Ari said "I've been practicing my whole life for this moment! I could die now." The rumors came true! JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Lance Bass joined her onstage for a mash up of "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" and "It Makes Me Ill".
