The best performances at Coachella 2019

Ariana Grande has dominated pop music for the past year with her back-to-back albums Sweetener and Thank U, Next , but she threw it back to the early 2000s during her Coachella headlining set by reuniting NSYNC on stage with her .

Glover made the most of the experience, taking a smoke break in the audience between songs and getting emotional while talking about the recent deaths of rappers Nipsey Hussle and Mac Miller.

More famous for his TV roles like Stringer Bell and John Luther, Idris Elba nevertheless filled a tent of eager listeners for his two-hour set of “hard, techie house music” as DJ Big Driis.

Although they have a new album due out soon, Tame Imapala stuck to the hits for their quasi-headlining set, only playing the same two singles (“Patience” and “Borderline”) that they debuted on Saturday Night Live a few weeks earlier.

The rising Spanish singer and dancer who incorporates elements of flamenco and R&B into her work delivered one of the weekend’s best performances, which included takes on the dreamy “Barefoot in the Park” (her collaboration with British crooner James Blake), El Mal Querer opener “Malamente,” and a breathtaking acapella version of “Catalina.” “It means so much to me and my people to share this with you,” she told the crowd .

That translated to some technical difficulties during her set: She temporarily forgot the words to her song “All the Good Girls Go to Hell,” and rapper Vince Staples’ microphone was muted when he came on stage to join her for a performance.
