As well as presenting her former arch-nemesis Kanye West with his Video Vanguard Award, Taylor Swift surprised many by turning up during Nicki Minaj's opening set at the VMAs last night.

The two had had a Twitter spat earlier in the month when Swift took offence to Minaj's rant about white female artists and their nominations - but it appeared all was forgiven by last night.

Minaj  - who won opened the show with a performance of 'Trini Dem Girls' and 'The Night is Still Young' - surprised the audience when she was joined by Swift on the latter song, which segued into Swift's song 'Bad Blood' (becoz deep METAPHORZ an stuf, ppl)

Actually, the whole thing worked out so well that we wouldn't be surprised if that whole Twitter nonsense was staged, too, just so they could perform together. Cynical, us?


Swift also premiered her new video 'Wildest Dreams', which you can see below:
