Powerful female artists supporting each other is our favorite type of content on a Friday. Katy Perry attended one of Taylor Swift’s sold-out “Eras Tour” concerts in Sydney, Australia on Feb. 23—alongside boyfriend Travis Kelce and British musician Rita Ora.

“The One That Got Away” singer shared the cutest message and sent the internet and Swifties in a spiral with her adorable Instagram post recapping the show at Accor Stadium. The two beautiful women smiled bright and posed cheek-to-cheek in the American Idol judge’s cover snap. The 39-year-old, who will celebrate a milestone birthday this October, included videos of Swift, 34, performing “You Belong With Me” from Fearless and “Bad Blood,” from Reputation—songs to which Perry and the audience, of course, knew all the words.

“got to see an old friend shine tonight ♥️✨,” the Grammy-nominated artist, captioned the carousel shared with her 206 million followers.

“we need to calm downnn,” Amazon music commented, in reference to Swift’s 2019 hit from Lover, “You Need to Calm Down,” which the Santa Barbara, Calif. native starred in the music video for.
