Ariana Grande started her "Side to Side" performance on a stationary bike
The artists took the Madison Square Garden stage in matching shades of rose on Sunday, performing their collaboration “Side to Side.”
Grande, 23, began the tune solo atop a stationary bike – emulating a Soul Cycle spin class – with a peppy ponytail and visor, before moving to the pommel horse (looks like someone watched the Olympics).
Minaj then joined Grande on the stage for the faux workout in a latex pink leotard – hearkening back to her 2014 album The Pinkprint. The rapper was accompanied by a bevy of hunky men, also dressed in bright shades of magenta.

The women – who sang “Bang Bang” with Jessie J at the 2014 VMAs – couldn’t resist getting a little NSFW at the end of their bit (see below gif).
Ahead of taking the stage, Grande told MTV pre-show host Charlamagne Tha God of Minaj, “I really genuinely love her. I feel like we have a very strong sisterhood … I adore that woman.”
Grande also confirmed her relationship with Mac Miller, who she was spotted hugging in the audience after singing.
