The 1975 had some fun in the BBC Live Lounge as they paid tribute to Ariana Grande.
The group performed a cover version of Ari’s thank u, next.
We’re so grateful for this cover of ‘thank u, next’ by @The1975 💘

When introducing the song, Matty Healy said Grande has “become the main protagonist—is that the right word?—in most people’s lives. The person I see spoken about most. And somebody I’ve started to really care about for some reason.”
Healy continued, “She’s had a right old tough time and I like her a lot. I think she’s cool. And she’s got a great voice. And I don’t. So I’m gonna sing one of her songs.”
What a beautiful tribute to her.
