“Pete Davidson, thanks for existing,” Grande said at the end of her speech.

The Video Music Awards was the couple’s first public outing together, as pointed out by PeopleTheir relationship has been a viral sensation, even leading to the online discussion around “big dick energy.”

Grande was also seen helping friend Minaj make her way to the stage as she accepted the award for “Best Hip Hop Video,” the first category of the night. Minaj won for “Chun Li.”
