Despite her glee, SZA managed to shout out to a famous face in the audience, Taylor Swift.

“Hi, Taylor, I love you,” she told the pop icon, before regaining her poise and finishing her speech.

“I’m just very grateful,” she continued. “And I’m not an attractive crier. Thank you.”

Swift was thrilled to be recognized, and was caught on camera freaking out. In a clip shared by The Swift Society, the 34-year-old turns and yells to her pal, Bleachers singer Jack Antonoff.

Although her words couldn’t be heard over the applause, The Swift Society claims to have deciphered the message by reading the pop star’s lips, believing she said: “I got a shoutout!”

Since being shared on X, formerly Twitter, the video has received 1.1 million views.

“She acts like she’s not the biggest artist in the world right now. lol love her,” said AO.

“Taylor Swift is so naturally sweet,” said @CRose2u. “She supports other artists, dances and enjoys their music, and then drops the mic when she wins on her new album!!! She is awesome.”
