Christine and the Queens hits the stage for her performance during the 2019 Coachella Music Festival on Saturday night (April 13) in Indio, Calif.

Ariana Grande reunited most of NSYNC during her Coachella set Sunday, a day she said she'll be recovering from "for the next twenty years".

"I've been rehearsing my whole. life for this moment!" yelled Grande, a longtime fan of the boy band.

Grande recently sampled NSYNC's song, "It Makes Me Ill", off their "No Strings Attached" album for her current single, "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" - which they also performed at Coachella.

Grande has also recently been open about her struggles with PTSD following the suicide bombing that killed 22 people at her concert in Manchester, United Kingdom, in May 2017.
