Grande announced during the live concert to the crowd of 50,000 and viewers around the world she had changed the set list completely after meeting 15 year old Olivia Campbell's mother. "I had the pleasure of meeting Olivia's mommy a few days ago as soon as I met her I started crying and gave her a big hug." She then went on to say "she told me to stop crying as Olivia wouldn't want me to cry and said Olivia would want to hear the hits. We had a totally different show planned and a rehearsal but changed everything."
The singer performed hits such as "Be Alright", "The Way" with boyfriend Mac Miller, "Break Free" and more including duets with Miley Cyrus "Don't Dream It's Over", Chris Martin "Don't Look Back in Anger", Black Eyed Peas "Where is the Love?", Victoria Monet "Better Days" and Parrs Wood High School Choir "My Everything".
Throughout the concert, artists talked about love and unity and seeing some of the biggest artists on stage together uniting as one, brought the message forward. Grande hopes to raise over 2 million to help the families that suffered from the tragic event.
