When the MTV VMA nominations dropped last month, Nicki Minaj couldn’t help but feel a bit slighted when her “Anaconda” clip didn’t get a Video of the Year nod and her “Feeling Myself” visual wasn’t acknowledged at all.

Looks as though they’ve officially made up, though, as both ladies teamed up for the award ceremony’s opening performance. The affair featured bits of Minaj’s “Trini Dem Girls”, “The Night Is Still Young” and then Swift’s “Bad Blood”.
