The Good Morning Britain talk show host, who slammed Grande for flying out of the country soon after the Manchester bombing at her concert last month, tweeted an apology while commending Sunday's event.

In this Sunday handout photo provided by Dave Hogan for One Love Manchester, singers Pharrell Williams, left, and Miley Cyrus perform at the One Love Manchester tribute concert in Manchester, north western England, Sunday. Confetti burst following the performance.

British singer Marcus Mumford held a moment of silence before performing.

Sunday's concert will raise money for victims of a suicide bombing that struck at the end of singer Ariana Grande's Manchester show May 22.

Grande later returned to stage with a moving and tearful performance of Somewhere Over The Rainbow bursting into tears of hysteria mid-song.

The show's co-producer continued, "I had the privilege of joining Ariana at the children's hospital the other night, and I'm proud to say that there's a TV set up there right now, and those kids are watching us live, so please say hello to all those kids".

The love continued as Grande's friend Miley Cyrus came to the stage again: the two pop stars embraced with a big hug, and Cyrus hinted, "We've done this song together before".

One of the most powerful moments of the concert was when the Parrs Wood High School Choir sang Grande's "My Everything" with the singer.

Gallagher and Take That hail from Manchester.

"We just wanted to show people we're not scared".

Robbie Williams also performed, changing some of his lyrics of "Strong" to honor the Manchester victims.

And it came after another terror attack in London last night in which seven people were killed and almost 50 injured after three men drove a van into a crowd on London Bridge and set upon people in a crazed knife rampage.

He said: "We're showing love to Manchester and London right now, put your hands in the air in the name of love".

Braun also praised fans for coming to the concert following last night's terror attack on London Bridge and Borough Market and called Grande "one of the bravest people I know".

She may well get choked up while she is singing so she will begin the song, then the Peas will join in to help her.
