Last night (Philippine time), 50,000 fans showed up at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground for the One Love Manchester show, a benefit concert for the victims of the Manchester bombing and their families. This included performances from Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and more, and was attended by 50,000 fans.
Whether they were watching live or just tuned in to the livestream, fans put #OneLoveManchester on the top trending spot with tweets of their favorite moments. One look at the thread and you’ll see a lot of Ariana videos. The most popular ones were her emotional performance of “One Last Time” and singing “The Way” with boyfriend Mac Miller.
There are also clips of Ariana collaborating with Miley for a rendition of “Don’t Dream It’s Over” and with Coldplay’s Chris Martin for “Don’t Look Back in Anger.”

Justin shared a heartwarming message, showing love to the people who’ve lost someone during the bombing.
Probably one of the most talked-about moments were the security guards dancing along with the fans.
