Candis Cayne joined Caitlyn Jenner at a Boy George concert on Friday night, and joined in giving the former Olympian a standing ovation.

"Caitlyn Jenner in the house for her first Boy George concert!" Jenner announced onstage to the standing O. "This is going to be a good group. Thank you so much.

"Enough about me. Thank you for being here tonight. This is so much fun for me. Let's hear it here at the Greek Theater for Boy George! Let's get it going!"

Caitlyn Jenner and Candis Cayne were spotted a short time later dancing to Boy George and Culture Club hits from the 1980s.

Boy George said later, during an interview with Entertainment Tonight, that the standing ovation was exactly what he expected.

"I expected a standing ovation for her and I wasn't disappointed," he said. "We need to celebrate the kinds of changes that are happening."

Candis Cayne is a transgender actress who has become very close friends with Caitlyn Jenner since her transformation. She attended Caitlyn's post-ESPYs party earlier this month, when she made her famous acceptance speech for the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

Many suspected Candis Cayne and Caitlyn Jenner to be involved in a romantic relationship, but both say that isn't true. The two are very good friends, and likely because of what each has endured, they have a very close emotional connection.

Were you a Boy George/Culture Club fan in the 1980s? Would you love to have rocked out the their tunes along with Candis Cayne and Caitlyn Jenner on Friday night?
