The 2022 Palm Springs Awards Gala would've been held tonight but the celebrations were canceled due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.

The honorees were still recognized for their accomplishments. One of those was the one-and-only Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga received the Icon Award for her performance in the film "House of Gucci."
