Chad Kroeger (the lead singer of Nickelback) and Avril Lavigne are one of those rare Hollywood couples who have somehow managed to stay friends after getting divorced. When they announced their separation a couple of years ago, Avril said via Instagram, “We are still, and forever will be, the best of friends, and will always care deeply for each other.” Unlike other exes, you can tell these two actually mean it. A good example? Avril joined Chad on stage recently, to rock out together at a Nickelback show. Pretty cool. She shared this video:

EX. GOALS. Amazing.

Avril captioned the video:

Chad also shared something on Instagram about the event. He posted the following photo, and said, “When we say ‘you never know who will join us for ‘Rockstar’ karaoke’… we mean it. Thank you @avrillavigne and Los Angeles for an amazing night! #FeedTheMachineTour#NBCA

What makes this surprise appearance even more awesome is that Avril hasn’t performed in three years — we love that she chose her ex’s show to end her hiatus.

The Canadian singer has unfortunately been battling Lyme disease for the past two years, but she recently announced that she’s feeling better and working on new music. She explained:


When can we expect to hear the new tunes? Lavigne told Billboard, “When it’s ready lol. Which will be soon.” (Aghhh. We almost can’t wait.) And who will likely be Avril’s biggest fan when her new hits drop? Chad — duh.

We love that you’re feeling happy and healthy, Avril. Please, don’t keep us in suspense for too long.
