SAN ANTONIO - One of the world's biggest pop stars surprised fans Wednesday night at a San Antonio nightclub.

Ariana Grande made an appearance at HEAT Nightclub on North Main Wednesday night according to posts on social media, including her own Instagram story.

Grande's Instagram story (which only displays for 24 hours) shows a video of two drag performers. One of them is captioned with the words, "my heart."

Other posts from people either performing at or attending Wednesday's "Drag Me to Fame" event show a woman who appears to be Grande in the crowd.

One of the entertainers who was on stage at HEAT on Wednesday night said someone tipped her a $100 bill and that's when she noticed it was Grande who was in the audience with a few of her dancers and a bodyguard. 

"I see her and say, 'Baby thank you,'" Alayna Marquez said. "Then she yells, 'You're freaking gorgeous!'"

Marquez said she broke character to hug and kiss Grande.

"She was having a blast. We respected her and (she respected) us," Marquez said.

Grande is in San Antonio for a performance Friday evening at the AT&T Center.
