Yesterday, I attended the Global Citizen Festival, where celebs like Mariah Carey, Charlie Puth, Metallica, and more performed for countless positive causes.
However, it was basically like one long-ass award show, which means there were amazing moments — and some awkward ones, too. Here are some of the best:
AMAZING: Mariah Carey returned to the stage and slayed the Late Night Valentine's Mix of "We Belong Together":

AWKWARD: Way too many speakers.
The amount of “inspirational” speakers today at global citizen was way too much. Performances were like 10 minutes while the speakers talked for like 40 minutes. The event itself was also pretty unorganized. There was only 1 entrance/exit line and VERYYY crowded because of that
AMAZING: Charlie Puth had a super cute "New York State of Mind" moment:

AWKWARD: People booed the mayor of New York City Eric Adams:
AMAZING: Mickey Guyton joined Metallica on their set for an incredible surprise:
.@MickeyGuyton joining @Metallica for “Nothing Else Matters” was an amazing treat for the @GlblCtzn Festival crowd in New York City.Guyton offered her own take on the song for The Metallica Blacklist Album, so it was pretty awesome to see her join Metallica to sing it.
AWKWARD: Priyanka Chopra stumbled on her words a little in this moment:
AMAZING: Joe Jonas performed his brother Nick's hit "Jealous":
AWKWARD: Nancy Pelosi was also booed:
