Gaga, 34, kicked off the appearance by performing “911” from her recently dropped album, Chromatica. She was then joined by Grande, 27, to complete their first live rendition of their upbeat collaboration during the unprecedented ceremony amid the COVID-19 crisis. When Grande left after their joint performance, Gaga concluded by performing “Stupid Love.”

The A Star Is Born actress’ last time on the VMAs stage occurred in 2013 when she performed her hit “Applause.” Grande, meanwhile, made an appearance at the 2018 ceremony to perform “God Is a Woman.”

“Rain on Me” is the second single from Gaga’s sixth studio album, Chromatica, released on May 29. While promoting the track, the Victorious alum revealed the song’s hidden meaning and gushed over Gaga.

“One time ….. I met a woman who knew pain the same way I did … who cried as much as I did … and who’s heart was bigger than her whole body,” Grande tweeted at the time. “She immediately felt like a sister to me.”
