Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's weather forecast for the MTV VMAs predicted a good time, and that's what we got. On Sunday night, the duo took the stage to perform their hit "Rain on Me" live for the first time, making pop goodness pour down from the heavens. Gaga sported a black and purple two-piece, and Grande rocked a matching purple crop top and skirt as they crooned the chart-topping track from Gaga's Chromatica album, which dropped in May. The set marked Gaga's first VMAs stageing since she sang "Applause" from her LP Artpop in 2013 and Grande's first VMAs act since 2018. During the show, Gaga also belted her jams "911" and "Stupid Love," making sure to include some epic wardrobe changes.
It was a big night for the artists as they received nine nominations each, earning them the most nods. The duo took home the awards for best collaboration and song of the year for "Rain on Me." Gaga also snagged the award for artist of the year, and Grande received the honour of best music video from home for her "Stuck With U" collaboration with Justin Bieber. Although the event was unlike any other VMAs ceremony, Gaga and Grande still slayed the award show game with their signature flair. Watch them perform "Rain on Me" in the clip above!
