Ariana Grande makes a surprise appearance at Coachella to debut her first single since Manchester bombing

The singer, 24, took to the stage at the Californian music festival to debut the track 'No Tears Left To Cry' just under a year after 22 people were killed following her concert.

After releasing her single online just hours beforehand, the American pop star then joined Kygo on Friday night to perform it live for the first time.

She remained on stage with the DJ to sing Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing during his set on the second weekend of the exclusive festival.

Ariana looked incredible in a lilac vest top and short taffeta skirt in the same pastel shade.

The star finished off her look with a black bum bag and mink-coloured thigh-high heeled boots.

After leaving the stage, Ariana was snapped hugging her rapper boyfriend Mac Miller.

The single is the first she has released since she was caught up in the terrorist attack in Manchester last year.

It poignantly includes the lyrics: "Ain't got no tears left to cry."

Earlier this week she took to Twitter to announce she was releasing new material.

Ariana wrote "no tears left to cry" upside down alongside the date April 20 – hinting the song would drop on Friday.

It is the first time she has tweeted since January 1, and she also posted a tear drop and the words "missed you" and shared a snap of her wearing a grey jumper with the "no tears left to cry" slogan on the front.

Ariana has collaborated with Pharrell on her new record, and he recently said it's "amazing" and "next level".

Her manager, Scooter Braun, said of her new album to Variety: "She has such an extraordinary voice and it's time for her to sing the songs that define her."

Ariana has been quiet on Twitter and Instagram in recent months and was forced to pull out of the performing at the Brits in February due to illness.

Scooter recently revealed the agony young star went through in the days that followed the Manchester bombing.

She visited 19 injured concertgoers in hospital soon after the attack, and continued with her Dangerous Woman tour following her incredible One Love Manchester concert.
