Just two months after a terror attack on her arena concert in Manchester, United Kingdom, a man was arrested who police say had plans to target Grande's show in Costa Rica. They're not releasing much information about him, but Costa Rican authorities have at least confirmed he is a Colombian citizen with the family names Caicedo López. They have not revealed whether he was working alone or on behalf of any sort of organization, terrorist or otherwise.

After the man in question was arrested, Grande's concert went off without a hitch — and she has massive cajones to continue to perform after someone was arrested for planning to target another one of her shows. She even posted a mirror selfie to Instagram for her Costa Rican friends before going onstage.

Costa Rica tonight! Missed you. I love you. Grateful.

A post shared by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on

"Cost Rica tonight," she wrote, adding a sweet message for her fans in the country: "Missed you. I love you. Grateful."

The incident follows closely — and eerily so — on the heels of the May attack at a concert of Grande's in Manchester, England. A suicide bomber connected to ISIL detonated an explosive device in the lobby of the Manchester arena where Grande played just after her concert ended on May 22. Twenty-two people were killed in the blast, including a number of children, and many were left injured. Grande returned to Manchester weeks later to host a benefit show to raise funds for the victims and their families.

Fans posted photos and videos from the show, which looked amazing. We still can hardly believe how Grande has bounced back after the devastating attack in Manchester, but she's been the picture of grace and resilience. Well done, sis.
