Lady Gaga may have lost the Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance to SZA and Doja Cat last night, but she appears to have won the internet.

Last night’s show saw SZA hobbling through the Grammy show on crutches, courtesy of an injury she sustained getting out of bed earlier in the day. At one point, she even had to rely on a wheelchair.

That injury didn’t stop her from making it to the stage to collect her award in the Best Pop Duo category for “Kiss Me More,” albeit in a precarious state. For that matter, Gaga’s loss in the category didn’t stop her from helping SZA make it to the stage unscathed, as Gaga jumped to SZA’s assistance, pulling her dress train out of the way as SZA made her way up the stairs. Gaga didn’t hesitate to get down on her knees to adjust the train, despite wearing an expensive designer dress of her own.

The small gesture had a huge impact in the Twitterverse, as fans of SZA and Lady Gaga both took to the platform to praise her. Fans applauded the singer for her kindness as a prime example of women in music supporting one another.

Elsewhere in the show, Lady Gaga received a special introduction from Tony Bennett, the singer with whom she shared her Best Pop Duo performance nomination for their recording of “I Get a Kick Out of You.” She then performed solo versions of “Do I Love You” and “Love for Sale,” two tunes the pair had recorded together. Bennett himself could not appear on stage due to ongoing issues with Alzheimer’s Disease. Gaga dedicated her performance to him.

Between Gaga’s Bennett-dedicated performance and her help with SZA’s dress train, Twitter has erupted in full-on homage. Here’s what people are saying…
