The pop diva hinted about the special performance earlier in the day by posting a short audio clip of the mashup on Instagram. “Rehearsinggggg a lil sum to add to the show today #honeymoontour,” she captioned the post.

Grande’s performance of “What Do You Mean?” follows a YouTube mashup of Bieber's Hot 100 hit with her My Everything track “One Last Time.” The mashup became an viral sensation after YouTuber Jake Marra posted the video in early September. Listen below.

“Really enjoying the instrumental for Justin Bieber’s latest single,” Marra wrote on YouTube. “So I thought I’d make a quick mashup! Songs are in the same key and same tempo, too easy!”

It’s no secret that Grande is a big fan of Bieber’s music. In early April, the diva was joined by Bieber in Los Angeles for a performance of her song “Love Me Harder.” Bieber stuck around for a solo job of his "Where Are You Now,” and the pair joined forces for a duet of Bieber's 2012 track “As Long As You Love Me."
