Judging from Ariana Grande’s insanely impressive impersonations of singers, it’s no secret Christina Aguilera has always been one of her top inspirations. This past weekend, Grande —along with hubby Dalton Gomez and friends—was able to experience Aguilera in all of her glory up close and personal.
According to People, Grande attended Aguilera’s show at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday night, July 16, where the veteran singer performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Grande documented the night on her Instagram story and fangirled over Aguilera’s performance, writing, “screaming,” over a clip of Aguilera singing on stage. She also wrote: “I love you. Congratulations to you & the @laphil on a STUNNING show.”
On a separate story, Grande wrote “dead” as Aguilera belted out her signature vocal run during the live rendition of “Ain’t No Other Man” from her 2006 studio album Back to Basics.
Xtina returned the favor and reposted Grande’s videos, including one “from @arianagrande’s point of view,” the singer wrote. In the next two slides, Xtina thanked Grande for her support, writing “Thank you for coming, beautiful” and “Love you girl.” Xtina also made a permanent post on her Instagram that read: “I can wholeheartedly say I had the time of my LIFE performing at the @hollywoodbowl this weekend. THANK YOU to the incredible team that made this show possible✨✨”
