Ariana Grande fights back tears during emotional Grammys performance

After a turbulent couple of years, Ariana Grande fought back her tears during an emotional Grammys performance.

This comes almost three years after the devastating terrorist attack which took place at the 'Thank U, Next' singer's concert in Manchester and a year and a half after the untimely death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

Watch a clip of the emotional performance below: 

For the event, the 26-year-old performed a medley of her biggest recent hits, which included 'Thank U, Next', and it was while singing this song, which among others, references Mac Miller, that she struggled to contain her emotions.

She shook the beginning of the lyrics up a little for the performance and decided to thank her dad for everything he's done for her. Fighting back her tears, the singer said: "I be thanking my dad, 'cause he's really awesome."

This performance comes after Grande unexpectedly pulled out of singing at the 2019 Grammy's last minute. As per Elle, the singer didn't attend the event because she believed that she would not receive enough creative freedom performing.

And while Grande might have been able to hold back her tears, her fans took to social media to praise the hitmaker for her emotional performance which left many of them in tears.

One wrote: "The most beautiful performance. i'm [sic] in tears. beyond proud of you @ArianaGrande"

A second added: "Never fails when @ArianaGrande performs tears start rolling down my face."

Meanwhile, a third remarked: "She performed 4 songs... She was so powerful every second... She wanted to cry with 'thank you, next' but she continued. She is Ariana Grande. And that was Sweetener/Thank you, next era... I'm so grateful."

While Grande's performance was well-received, despite being nominated for a total of five Grammys, the 26-year-old singer went home empty-handed.
