Zendaya surprised fans when she made an appearance on stage during Weekend 2 of Coachella.

The “Euphoria” star – who hasn’t performed in more than seven years – joined Labrinth as they sang his Emmy-nominated hit, “All Of Us,” from the popular HBO series and “I’m Tired.”
Zendaya, 26, stunned in a baby pink dress featuring a corset bodice and a frilly skirt.
She completed the look with a plain white T-shirt underneath, along with silver hoop earrings, a matching ring and thigh-high black boots.
“I cannot express my gratitude enough for this magical night. Thank you for my brother Labrinth for inviting me and giving me the most beautiful safe space to be on stage again,” the actress wrote via her Instagram Stories Saturday night, following her cameo at the star-studded Indio, Calif. music festival.
“And to the crowd tonight… wow. My heart is so full. I can’t thank you enough for the love I received tonight, made all my nerves melt away. I’m so grateful.”
Fans were quick to react to Zendaya’s energetic performance on social media, with many praising her for both her singing and movement on stage.
“THIS IS NOT A DRILL ZENDAYA IS LITERALLY PERFORMING ALL FOR US WITH LABRINTH AT COACHELLA RN OMFGFBDNDND,” one fan tweeted in real time, with another adding, “I would’ve ascended in that f–king crowd wym Zendaya pulled up to Coachella.”
A third person chimed in, “OH ZENDAYA THE PERFORMER IS BACK WE WON,” while another fan joked, “ZENDAYA AT COACHELLA??? PERFORMING??! IN 2023?! this woman has not performed since the last supper y’all.”
It’s been awhile since fans have seen Zendaya on stage as she’s prioritized acting in recent years, including films like “Spider-Man,” “Dune” and “Malcolm & Marie” and TV shows like “Euphoria.” The former “Shake It Up” star released a self-titled debut album in 2013, which featured her popular single, “Replay.”
Her tour to support the album ended in 2015, and she hasn’t taken the stage since — albeit a handful of brief performances at award ceremonies.
“I stepped away from music quite a while ago, for a number of reasons,” she tweeted in March 2022. “But I still really love it.”
Elsewhere during Labrinth’s Coachella set, he brought out Sia and “Dance Moms” alum Maddie Ziegler to perform “Thunderclouds’”
“I f–king love this girl. When I first came to LA, I was depressed and f–ked up,” the rapper said of the “Chandelier” songstress.
“When someone picks you up and supports you as a friend, you gotta hold them close.”
Does this mean we’re getting pop Zendaya back?
