Ariana Grande struggled to perform on stage, during her concert in Mac Miller’s hometown.
The singer’s Sweetener tour stopped in Pittsburgh this week, and Ariana got emotional as she sang her hit song ‘Thank U, Next’.
Ariana choked up while trying to sing the lyrics, “Wish I could say ‘Thank you’ to Malcolm, ’cause he was an angel,” and struggled to get any words out as the crowd encouraged her to keep going.

It’s been nine months since Mac sadly passed away in September 2018, following an accidental drug overdose.
Ariana and Mac dated for two years, before splitting in April last year.
Following her split from Mac, the singer enjoyed a whirlwind romance with comedian Pete Davidson, and she even got engaged to him after just a few weeks of dating.
However, Ariana and Pete ended up calling off their engagement later that year in October, one month after Mac passed away.
