Now THIS is true besties! When Ed Swift beat out Taylor Swift for Song of the Year at the 2016 Grammy’s, she had the CUTEST reaction in the world. She was on her feet jumping up and down in excitement and cried with joy as soon as his name was announced!
BFF joy! We think Taylor Swift, 26, was even more thrilled than Best Song winner Ed Sheeran, 24, over his surprising victory in the category with “Thinking Out Loud, which marked Ed’s first win in four trips to the Grammys and a big win over such competitors as, well, Taylor herself who many expected would take the trophy for “Blank Space.” Read on for the absolutely cutest reaction EVER from Tay!
You would have thought Tay Tay herself actually won Ed’s award as she not only jumped to her feet before he did, ran over and gave him the world’s biggest hug….then SHE went back to her seat and hugged her pal Selena Gomez, 23, with pure excitement over Teddy’s win, as she couldn’t contain the joy to simply just embracing the British read head. Taylor kept putting her hands over her mouth in pure joyous shock while Ed gave his speech onstage, and it was so priceless to see her reaction of genuine excitement, it was as if it was her own little brother onstage accepting the honor!

We don’t believe for one second any of that emotion was faked, as Taylor has been one of Ed’s greatest supporters over the years, even having him open for her on her Red tour in 2013. She revealed during interviews before the 2014 release of 1989 that Ed was the very first person she played the album in length to, because his opinion mattered that much to her. Obviously she’s still so close to him to this day!
HollywoodLifers, are you happy that Ed finally won his first Grammy? Are you surprised Taylor was so excited.
