Nicki Minaj pays tribute to Manchester bombing victims at Monday night show 

Kevin Mazur/WireImageNicki Minaj and Ariana Grande are good friends, so it's no wonder that, during her Monday night concert in Manchester, England, the Head Barb paid tribute to the 22 people killed in the 2017 terrorist bombing after Ariana's show at that same venue.

After singing "Grand Piano," which she called "the saddest song I've ever had to perform," Nicki told the musicians to keep playing, so she could "take a moment to remember the victims of the Manchester terrorist attacks."

At the show, Nicki told fans, "Put your light in the sky to remember everybody we lost, and God bless the families of everyone who survived them.  And God bless Manchester for being resilient and not bowing down to fear! For being matter what! No matter what!" 

The audience responded with wild cheers.

You can watch fan-shot video of the moment now on YouTube.

The European leg of the rapper's Nicki Wrld tour, which has been plagued by technical difficulties and cancellations, continues Wednesday night in Luxembourg.
