    Piers Morgan in 2013. Morgan apologized to singer Ariana Grande on Sunday, after initially criticizing her following the May 22, attack following her concert in Manchester, England.

Ariana Grande’s all-star benefit concert for victims of last month’s attack following her show in Manchester, England, has won over a critic in Piers Morgan.

The outspoken former CNN personality and current host of ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” had criticized Grande on Twitter following the attack for returning home to the U.S. instead of visiting with victims.

The 23-year-old Grande visited injured fans in the hospital last week before Sunday’s One Love Manchester concert. Grande was joined by Miley Cyrus, Pharrell, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and others at the concert that raised more than $13 million for a relief fund.

Morgan tweeted during the concert that he misjudged Grande and apologized. He added, “You’re an admirable young woman & this is a magnificent night.”
