Lady Gaga performed a medley of her album "Chromatica" at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night while wearing a face mask in a nod to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I might sound like a broken record, but wear a mask," she told the audience during her award acceptance speech. "It’s a sign of respect.”


The artist wore a number of different masks throughout the show, showing off her eclectic style. Her mask during the medley performance lit up.


Ariana Grande, who performed a portion of "Rain on Me" with Lady Gaga, also wore a mask.

The performance was pre-taped. Lady Gaga also wore a mask while watching the show air with her manager, according to her Instagram story.
