Ariana Grande opened her “Sweetener Tour” in Albany, New York this week and paid tribute to her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. According to those at the show, before she came out on stage some of Mac’s tracks, including “Dang!,” were played in the arena.

Mac wasn’t actually represented during the show, with Ari skipping such Mac-related tunes “ghostin” or “imagine,” noting it was “too heavy” for her to perform them. He was mentioned in her song “Thank u, Next,” though.

As for the show itself, Ari stuck mostly to songs from her two most recent albums, “Sweetener” and “Thank U, Next,” although the set list did older songs like “Dangerous Woman,” and “One Last Time” and “Break Free.”  She also used her microphone stand to do a little pole dancing during the show. Check it out below.

  • ONE MORE THING! Ari is using her tour to get more of her fans registered to vote. Each show will feature registration booths as part of a campaign dubbed “#ThankUNextGen.” The campaign is in connection with HeadCount, a nonprofit, that works with musicians to promote vote participation.

Emotions aren’t only high for “Game Of Thrones” fans, it’s intense for the actors, too. We already know that Kit Harington cried when the HBO show wrapped filming, but it turns out that’s not the first time the show has overwhelmed him – at one point, he even entered therapy because of the series.

Spoiler alert for fans who aren’t caught up! It was all because of his character Jon Snow’s death in the fifth season. To cope with all the pressure, which included fans yelling at him in the street asking if he was coming back to life, he sought therapy.
