When Beyonce won Video of the Year, she allowed Taylor to come up onstage and give her acceptance speech a second time. "You know, they told me to be ready just in case she might want to say something," Taylor said. "It was just so wonderful and so incredibly classy of her and just gracious and wonderful to let me say something. She's just been my hero and one of my idols ever since I was little. She's a great person."
