‘u were so beyond brilliant tonight. so grateful to have been a part of this with u. & thank u again @mtv.’

The first image in Ariana’s virtual photo album showed her and Gaga donning some next level face masks, while rehearsing choreography in a studio space.

Gaga’s mask had the logo for her latest studio album Chromatica printed on it in a metallic shade of pink and it had silver spikes sewn into it, while Ariana’s was completely covered in sparkling rhinestones. 

The ladies appeared to have on grey sports bras and they both rocked colorful eyeshadow looks. 

All love: 'thank u so much for having me @ladygaga i love u with all my heart always,' began the 27-year-old Sweetner songstress in her post's caption

One particularly noteworthy image was one of Ariana pumping a generous helping of hand sanitizer into Gaga’s open palms. 

The pair were fully dressed in their performance outfits and had on face masks, while seemingly hanging out backstage.
