Less than two weeks after her concert was attacked by a suicide bomber, Ariana Grande was back on stage in Manchester, England.
The 23-year-old singer was among the slew of stars performing at the “One Love Manchester” benefit concert Sunday afternoon in front of 50,000 fans — many of whom had been at the show on May 22 that was devastated by a bomb blast.
Grande was joined by Miley Cyrus for an emotional rendition of “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” the Crowded House hit that they covered in 2015. The friends sat side-by-side on stage, giggling and chatting in between the lyrics, before getting the whole crowd on their feet waving their arms in unison.

Cyrus went on to dedicate her new song “Inspired” to the Northern England city of Manchester, which she called “home from home.”
“We love you so much,” Grande told the audience at the Old Trafford Cricket Grounds.
She was also joined on stage by 24 pupils from from Parrs Wood High School choir for a special performance of “My Everything.” The students recorded a version of the song last week to raise funds for the victims of the terror attack.
Other breakout performances included Pharrell sharing the stage with Cyrus to lighten the mood with “Happy.”
Along with Grande, artists slated to appear include Justin Bieber, Robbie Williams, Little Mix, Katy Perry, Take That, Niall Horan, Coldplay, Marcus Mumford, and Pharrell Williams.
Last week, Grande surprised fans who were injured in the attack by visiting them at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Sunday’s event is intended to honor the victims of the deadly suicide bombing at Grande’s May 22 concert at Manchester Arena which killed 22 people and injured at least 59 others.
