Watch: Taylor Swift Joins Nicki Minaj on Stage at VMAs

Insert the “Bad Blood” jokes here — it looks like the feud between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj is over.

During Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, Minaj opened the show with a bang, performing “Trini Dem Girls” before introducing a special guest. Swift joined her during “The Night Is Still Young,” sending the audience (and Twitter) into a frenzy.

Swift then launched into her hit “Bad Blood,” and afterword, the two, who previously made headlines for a Twitter beef, hugged it out on stage.

When the nominations were announced, Minaj called out MTV when she was snubbed for a video of the year nomination.

“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” she tweeted. “If I was a different ‘kind’ of artist, ‘Anaconda’ would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well.”

Swift then accused her of “pit[ing] women against each other,” but the two later made up over social media after Swift apologized.

Watch the full performance below.
