When Ariana Grande's soundboard cut out in the middle of her Honeymoon Tour show in Brooklyn Sunday night, things could've gone a lot worse than they did. She could've left the stage, she could've canceled everything or she could've thrown her mic at her band Lil Wayne-style:
But despite how frustrating it is to have ALL of your sound disappear mid-concert (especially during "Right There," which is a JAM), Ari was fueled by her fans, who kept singing. Her dancers didn't skip a step onstage, and her band (if you were close enough to hear them without the arena-sized sound system) kept rockin'. What could've been a silent embarrassment turned into a humongous singalong.
For those of us who weren't at the Barclays Center this weekend, Ari shared the "magical moment" on Instagram:
"when the sound board shuts down during your show and everyone on stage keeps going because your fans are absolutely everything and sing the song for you at the top of their lungs," she wrote. "such a magical moment. I love y'all so much."
"technical difficulties !!! ? thank you my babies for singing at the top of your lungs, you saved the number ??????? show must go on #IllAlwaysBeRightThere"
What a moment! Looks like her "babes" will always be "right there."
