Demi Lovato kicked off her birthday celebrations with Ariana Grande.

The pop star turned 27 on Tuesday but started the party a day early by attending Grande’s concert at London’s O2 Arena on Monday evening.

Before Grande walked on stage, she was joined by her backing dancers and manager Scooter Braun in cheering “happy birthday, Demi”.
