Let it rain!
No less than, in the case of the 2020 MTV VMAs Sunday evening, the place Ariana Grande and Woman Gaga took the level for a joint efficiency in their break duet, “Rain on Me,” simply moments once they gained the most productive collaboration and track of the 12 months prizes.
The home-meets-dance-pop track debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Scorching 100 chart originally of June, making it Gaga’s 5th and Grande’s fourth U.S. No. 1 track. It seems that on Gaga’s album “Chromatica,” and it was once her first time on the VMAs since 2013; Grande carried out remaining in 2018.
However since “Rain on Me” was once launched in the midst of the COVID-19 quarantine, we’ve not had an opportunity to look them carry out it in combination … till Sunday evening’s display. (The futuristic, pink-tastic video was once a minimum of one thing.)
It in truth became out to be extra of a Woman Gaga medley/party than it was once a real duet, although the 2 divas did percentage the level for a couple of moments.
The prolonged phase began out chilly with Gaga, carried out up in a video-reminiscent bustier-studded leather-based outfit and a masks worthy of Bane striking out in a bed room set. She then slid down a pole right into a room of mannequins and onto a level set for a efficiency amongst masked dancers in outfits that shouted again to 1980s apocalyptic movies like, smartly, “Mystery.” However the track? Smartly, it wasn’t “Rain on Me” — it was once any other contemporary monitor, “911.”
However then, Gaga spoke to us all, calling out, “What is Up, MTV?” which became out to be the creation for “Rain.” Gaga joined a newly costumed slew of masked singers, much less apocalyptic than crimson and “Rain”-music-video themed, which gave the opposite major girl of the hour, Ariana Grande, an opportunity to sashay onstage in a glittery tulip skirt and thick white platforms for the duet.
Have been we carried out? We weren’t! Grande and Gaga disappeared right into a rotating tower and best Gaga emerged: in a complete new slinky pink-and-black outfit. She strode up a flight of stairs to a piano formed like … smartly, a mind to steer us all into any other efficiency of a brand new track, “Silly Love.”
“I would like you to like your self this night and each evening,” Gaga stated as soon as the performances had been carried out. “Have fun your self … Be type, masks up. Be courageous.”
Now, we are by no means going to fully know the way they pulled all of that off — however it is secure to mention that the entire thing has left us much more gaga for Gaga (who went on in a while after the efficiency to just accept the artist of the 12 months award). A wholly Grande efficiency, throughout.
