A last-minute promise Ariana Grande made to a victim's mum completely changed her concert.

Ariana Grande thought she had the set list of her Manchester One Love concert all worked out. That was, until she met the mother of one of the fans that was killed when a suicide bomber let off an explosion at her May 22 concert.

Speaking to the 50,000 strong crowd, Ariana said she “had the pleasure” of meeting the mother of 15-year-old Olivia Campbell.

"As soon as I met her I started crying and gave her a big hug," the singer told the crowd.

“She told me to stop crying as Olivia wouldn't have wanted me to cry."

What Olivia's mother - Charlotte - told Ariana next would change her entire show.

"And then she told me that Olivia would have wanted to hear the hits.

"So that means that we had a totally different show planned and we had a rehearsal yesterday where we changed everything."

But the singer admitted that including the songs her fans had originally turned out to see her perform two weeks ago was for the best.

"This evening has been so light and so filled with fun and love and bright energy and I want to thank you for that," she said.
