Ariana Grande was an audience member for once.
Ahead of her sold-out San Antonio performance, Ariana Grande popped by HEAT Nightclub for the weekly “Drag Me to Fame” event at the venue, to watch some lovely dancers perform her hits. The “Needy” singer posted a few clips to her Instagram of some of the acts to take the stage, and audience members couldn’t help but notice her cute space buns as she stared on to the stage.
One performer by the name of Niyala Milan Matthews shared his performance to Instagram, accompanied by a cute write up detailing how pleased he was to perform for his favourite star.

“Was my off night from performing, i had planned to meet friends at a local bar on the north side but one text from a friend changed my entire night. i’ve never made a u-turn so quickly lol. i love to perform.. ever since i was little dancing & singing around has always made me feel the most happy,” Niyala wrote.
“However, ive never felt more anxious performing til tonight. i walked into the club & saw 2 little space buns poking from the crowd, i knew it was her! i ran backstage and started putting my ponytail on.. i had to perform for her! i couldn’t even accept her tip or look her in the eye i was so nervous lol. but! she shared the memory i will truly cherish for a life time! I GOT TO PERFORM FOR MY ICON.”
