Hot off their Olympic run, the Final Five are living their best life.

Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, Aly Raisman and Madison Kocian attended the MTV Video Music Awards and had the absolute best time, meeting some of music and pop culture’s biggest stars at Sunday’s show. (Gabby Douglas skipped the awards show after suffering an allergic reaction.)

The foursome took the stage to present the award for Best Female Video, which went to Beyonce. Naturally, they all freaked out. Who wouldn’t?!

Hernandez, who will be joining season 23 of Dancing With the Stars, probably had the best reaction after hugging the 34-year-old “Formation” singer onstage.

Just look at the 16-year-old gymnast’s face! Too adorable!

Hernandez had to preserve the moment, taking to Twitter to make sure the surreal experience actually really happened. “I just hugged Beyonce,” she adorably tweeted to her more than 274K followers.

During the awards show, she and her teammates also met Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

Hernandez even took a selfie with West, who debuted his NSFW “Fade” music video featuring real-life couple Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert at the awards show, captioning the pic, “I love Kanye more than Kanye loves Kanye.”

Biles, meanwhile, made a cameo on Kardashian’s Snapchat.

Kardashian also posted a photo with Biles, Raisman, Hernandez and Kocian to her Snapchat, with a gold medal at the bottom signifying the Final Five’s epic run at the Rio Olympics.

On the “white” carpet, Raisman told ET’s Carly Steel that Douglas’ VMA no-show was due to an “allergic reaction,” reiterating that the 20-year-old gold medalist was “doing OK.” “Something was a little swollen on her face. They’re having her rest, just in case,” Raisman said. Watch the video below for more.
