Last night in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Ariana Grande was performing on her Sweetener Tour. Pittsburgh is where Mac Miller is from and throughout the night fans who attended the show noticed Ariana was very emotional during her performance. Even before the show started, Ariana had a playlist of Mac Miller’s songs playing through out the venue while fans were getting to their seats.
Below is a video of Ariana performing her hit single Thank U Next, and in it it mentions Mac Miller. You can hear the whole arena scream his name.

During her performance of raindrops, Ariana was crying and could barely sing the song. If you don’t know this track, it’s off of her Sweetener album, and the lyrics are
When raindrops fell down from the sky
The day you left me, an angel cried
Oh, she cried, an angel cried
