BLACKPINK made history by becoming the first female K-pop group to take the stage at Coachella. Add to that, their set was also live-streamed on the big screen in New York City's Time Square. It's amazing how these girls can't take a bad picture, ever.

Country music star Kacey Musgraves made her debut at Coachella, but she left with a treasure trail of memes when she got left hanging while attempting to get the crowd to "Yeehaw" with her (lol). 

Selena Gomez and Cardi-B made a surprise appearance during DJ Snake's set to perform their mega-hit "Taki Taki". We've not seen or heard much of Gomez lately so deservedly, the crowd went wild to see her up on the Coachella stage for the first time. Cardi-B got everyone on their feet like a pro, having performed at the festival last year.

Full-time reality TV star and occasional model Jordyn Woods made an unexpected cameo during Jaden Smith's set (who looked ghastly in his bleached eyebrows by the way). Woods was in the news lately for all the wrong reasons; she was involved in a scandalised tryst with Khloe Kardashian's baby daddy Tristan Thompson.

 

Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover brought out zero guests for his headlining set. In other news, he also finally released Guava Island (co-starring a resplendent Rihanna) over the weekend. The short film was free to stream on Amazon Prime for a limited time.

 

Ariana Grande pulled out all the stops for her headlining act. On top of an over-the-top "Arichella" pop-up, she brought out 90s heartthrobs *NSYNC for a rendition of "Tearin' Up My Heart", rap queen Nicki Minaj for "Side To Side" and hip-hop mogul Diddy for "Mo Money Mo Problems".

 

Talk of the town, Billish Eilish performed at Coachella for the first time. In what looked like a scene out of The Exorcist, she dangled from a mattress in reference to her album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. Things didn't according to plan, however, when she forgot her lyrics to "all the good girls go to hell". The crowd didn't care much though.
