The Good Morning Britain co-host had originally criticized Grande for leaving the United Kingdom soon after the suicide bombing at her May 22 Manchester concert instead of staying behind to be with the surviving victims and their families.

“I misjudged you, @ArianaGrande & I apologise. You're an admirable young woman & this is a magnificent night.

Respect.#OneLoveManchester,” Morgan tweeted along with a photo of Grande hugging a young local choir member in the middle of the song “My Everything.”

Grande returned to England earlier this week and met with victims in the hospital. She then put on the One Love Manchester benefit concert on Sunday, which featured A-list performers like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Coldplay, Liam Gallagher, Katy Perry, and more.
