Both stars appeared equally excited to be in each other’s presence, as Styles reportedly shared how he grew up on Twain’s music thanks to his mom.“Shania Twain taught me to sing,” Styles told the Coachella crowd.
“She also taught me that men are trash,” he added.Twain, 56, said she was “starstruck” as she shared the stage with Styles.
The crowd was also surprised when Justin Bieber hit the stage to join Daniel Caesar for a performance of their mega hit “Peaches.”
Bieber performed shirtless, wearing nothing but denim jeans, Calvin Klein boxers and a red hat. Bieber and Caesar were photographed hugging onstage.
Big Sean also caught the concert bug after rapper YG brought him out during his set. Big Sean captured the crowd’s hearts when he performed alongside his girlfriend Jhené Aiko.
“Now I wanna go on tour,” Big Sean tweeted after the show with a crying face emoji.

Phoebe Bridgers also made her Coachella debut. The star delighted fans with music from her album “Punisher,” released in 2020 as well as a first-ever live performance of her new song “Sidelines.” She also brought out Arlo Parks for duets of “I Know the End” and “Graceland Too.”

Earlier this month Coachella organizers posted a new lineup after it was announced that Kanye West, who changed his legal name to Ye, was dropped. Replacing him is Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd.
Swedish House Mafia had already been listed as performers prior to the lineup change, but it wasn’t immediately clear when they were to perform. Now they are listed at the top of the Sunday nightly schedule, along with The Weeknd.
