Ariana Grande performs at 2016 Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival

On August 20th, Ariana Grande performed at the Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival, as she performed many of her hits.

Ariana Grande’s set was just under an hour of pure pop power. It was all killer, no filler, just one hit after another. Her vocal runs were judiciously delivered, and the old-school fly backup dancers could have won a gold medal for synchronized swimming (had they been in water). When she launched into “Into You,” that sensuous punch of dance-pop pleasure had the rabid crowd of fans flipping their shit, alternating between dancing and trying to Snap the moment. The dancing won out.

While performing her breakthrough hit “The Way,” Ariana Grande was joined by the song’s original guest star, Mac Miller, who came out for an unexpected appearance to rap his part.
