BRITs 2018: Ariana Grande Watched the Manchester Tribute Last Night
What a woman...
Today marks almost nine months since there was a bombing at Ariana Grande's Dangerous Woman Tour in Manchester. The attack killed 23 people and injured over 500 of those attending the concert. Many are still grieving the horrific affects of that night.
Yesterday Liam Gallagher took to the BRITs stage to pay tribute to the victims and their families and Ariana was watching.

The 'One Last Time' singer was originally rumoured to be performing at the event. However, according to Geoff Taylor, chief executive of the Brit Awards, Ariana was ill the night ahead of the show and unfortunately "on doctor's orders" not to leave the US.
Instead, Liam stepped in to sing a rousing rendition of the Oasis single 'Live Forever' that brought BRITs viewers to tears.
Ever a remarkable woman, fans soon noticed that Ariana was watching and showing her support for Liam on Instagram.
The 'Into You' superstar posted an Instagram story of Liam's tribute with a bee emoji (Manchester's symbol) and a heart. The gesture may seem small but it's a striking reminder that Ariana cares and wanted to be a part of the tribute in spite of her illness.
Ariana did of course host the huge One Love Manchester benefit concert in the weeks immediately after the bombing.
No one would have blamed Ariana if she ended her tour after the attack but instead, she chose to honour the victims.
The event was a testimony to her spirit and character and last night was a reminder of how special she is.
We love you Ariana and we love you Liam. We couldn't be more grateful for both of you and what you do.
