Spears was the winner of the Candies Style Icon Award, which was presented by Fifth Harmony. But there’s definitely some shade-filled history there. Remember when Fifth Harmony was a contestant on The X Factor? It was when Spears was a judge on the show, and she made it perfectly clear before Fifth Harmony advanced to the finals that she thought the group wasn’t cut out to make it.
As soon as Fifth Harmony announced that Spears was the winner of the award, fans took to Twitter to throw back to that time Spears threw so much shade.

Other fans, however, loved the reunion and seemed perfectly willing to ignore the awkwardness we could all see there.
