Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj performed “Side To Side” at the 2016 VMAs on Sunday. Watch below!

“Side To Side” is featured on Grande’s most recent album, Dangerous Woman, which came out in May. The song will serve as the record’s third single, following “Dangerous Woman” and “Into You.” This marks the first time the stars have performed the track on television, and the song’s music video will come out tonight, too.

This is the second time the collaborators have performed together at the VMAs. As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Grande and Minaj gave the opening performance for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. Joined by Jessie J, they performed “Bang Bang,” and Minaj memorably suffered a wardrobe malfunction.

The rapper had no such issue last year, bouncing back with another opening performance at the 2015 ceremony. For that, she was unexpectedly and famously joined by Taylor Swift, collaborating on “Bad Blood” after feuding over the VMAs nominations. And on the subject of nods, Grande is a five-time nominee at this year’s show.

She was nominated for Best Female Video, Best Pop Video, Best Editing, and Best Cinematography for “Into You,” as well as Best Collaboration Video for “Let Me Love You” with Lil Wayne. Watch video of Grande and Minaj’s “Side To Side” performance below!
