"You are such a class act," tweeted one fan, adding: "Love both of you and I'm proud of both of you. You are two inspiring queens."
Shania was praised for her attitude
Shania recently returned to Las Vegas for her postponed residency, which kicked off in early 2020 but which she was forced to cancel due to the pandemic.
The star pulled out all the stops for fans when it came to hitting the stage again, and in early January the 56-year-old took to Instagram to share a montage of gorgeous outfits from her last show of the year including a sheer statement gown with a thigh-high split, and a glittery silver gown.
Shania is currently enjoying some much-deserved downtime, but she will be returning to the stage in February through to September.
Let's Go is the singer's second Vegas residency; Shania: Still the One began nine years ago in December 2012, and ended in December 2014 after more than 100 shows.

The chart-topper has incredible energy and is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The star recently got candid about aging and admitted that while she previously worried about it, she has learnt to not give it too much thought.
"I'd rather dream about songs or dream about other things I want to do in my life, and I want to just daydream," she shared. "I'm just going to be healthy and I'm so much more accepting now of the way I look, you know, with and without clothes."
