Fans in attendance took to Twitter to chronicle Grande's latest concert, with one tweeting that a Mac Miller playlist was on in the arena before she took the stage and that the "God Is a Woman" singer had a seat reserved for her late ex.
Ariana really had a Mac Miller playlist for the music before the show and she has an empty seat reserved for him 😩😭 she’s so strong 🥺
During the show, Grande got emotional during at least two of her songs. When she began singing "Raindrops (An Angel Cried)," a song widely believed to be about her split with Miller, she got audibly choked up and, according to a Twitter user, was unable to finish singing the track.
Likewise, during "Thank U, Next" -- which features the lyric "Wish I could say, 'Thank you' to Malcolm / 'Cause he was an angel" -- she began crying. The audience rallied behind the pop star, belting out the song in her place as she composed herself on stage with the help of her dancers.
Pittsburgh loves you so so much. super grateful I was able to be here for this moment. Mac is always with us and shining over you every night💜
