Camila Cabello has plenty of fans, but her latest might be her most high profile.

The former Fifth Harmony member made her solo performance debut at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (May 21) night, and got a rave review from none other than Katy Perry. During Cabello’s powerful performance of her new single “I Have Questions,” Perry tweeted Cabello to tell her that she sang the ends of the song. Just how impressed was Perry? We think her exclamation points (10 to be exact!) say it all: “HELLOOOO ❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️❤️,” Perry wrote at the end of her tweet.

Cabello wasn’t the only singer’s who got Perry’s attention during the BBMAs. The “Bon Appetite” artist seemed to preparing for her upcoming role as an American Idol judge by giving out accolades to a number of performers throughout the night.

In fact, before the awards even got underway, Perry took to Twitter to say she was excited to see “all my friends in their evolutions on #BBMAs2017 VERY soon,” and gave a special shoutout to performers Nicki Minaj, Halsey, Miley Cyrus and Cher.

During the actual show, Perry had some special words of praise for 23-year-old singer Julia Michaels, who performed “Issues.”

“The last part was so beautiful,” Perry wrote to Michaels.

In addition to encouraging the next generation of artists like Cabello and Michaels, Perry took some time to fangirl over some of her longtime favorites, including Celine Dion.

“I have always lived for you PLS BEAT YOUR CHEST AT THE END OF THIS PERFORMANCE,” Perry tweeted to Dion, who performed the iconic Titanic theme song, “My Heart Will Go On,” at the show last night.

When she wasn’t praising her fellow performers, Perry was making special requests.

“pls tell me A Case of You by Joni Mitchell is in the karaoke queue for whoever is up next,” Perry wrote to Lorde, who also performed at the show.
