"I would like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando and at Pulse nightclub last night," she told the crowd. "The LGBTQ community, they’re like my soulmates since I was really young, so I’m very moved by it."
The singer then broke into tears before trying to bring a little lightness back to the stage.
"I don’t know why I’m crying already, because most of this tonight is pretty miserable because my songs are fucking miserable," she said. "I do have two songs that sound happy, but they’re not."

Last night, the Tony Awards ceremony was also dedicated to the Orlando victims and their families and friends. Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of "Hamilton," used his acceptance speech to pay tribute to the victims and recited a touching sonnet about love.
Other celebrities, including Ellen DeGeneres, Lea DeLaria, Adam Lambert and Madonna have also shared their condolences online.
