Young Filipino trio, TNT Boys, got the surprise of their lives when pop diva Ariana Grande joined their performance in American late night talk show “The Late Late Show with James Corden”.
Francis Concepcion, Mackie Empuerto, and Kiefer Sanchez performed Jennifer Hudson’s “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” during their guest appearance.
Mid-song, Grande, who was waiting backstage, appeared on-stage and sang with the trio.
Concepcion, who was the biggest fan of Grande out of the three, said meeting grande felt like a “dream.”
The “7 rings” singer meanwhile expressed her admiration for the young Filipino singers.
“I’m obsessed with you guys, you guys are so incredible,” said Grande who even went down on her knees and clapped for the boys at the end of their performance.
Prior to the surprise, host James Corden shared a story of his first meeting with the boys, particularly Concepcion, who is a big fan of Grande.
“You just performed on the stage and there was a commercial break, and I came over and I came to meet to meet you, Francis, and you went like this: ‘oh my god, oh my god’… and I was like, I thought I’m huge in the Philippines,” Corden recalled.
“You were going ‘oh my god’ and I went ‘hi’ and you’re first words were: ‘you’ve met Ariana Grande’,” he added.
When asked why Concepcion is “obsessed” with the Grammy-winning artist, he replied: ” I love her voice and her attitude.”
