Taylor Swift showed she felt no hard feelings towards Kanye West as she greeted him backstage at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. Their amicable meeting may have come as a shock to fans – who will remember all too well the moment when Kanye hijacked Taylor's acceptance speech during the VMAs in 2009 and claimed that his friend Beyoncé Knowles deserved the win more.

Six years later it seems that the pair have put the past behind them as Taylor happily chatted to Kanye behind the scenes.

The pop princess accepted Kanye's friendly handshake and even went as far as to embrace the rapper and cosy up to him for photographs.

As they sported wide grins for the cameras and looked to be enjoying each other's company, Taylor and Kanye were joined by the Yeezus star's wife Kim Kardashian, who was also given a big hug from Taylor.

At the 2009 VMAs, Kanye shocked the audience and viewers at home when he stormed the stage and grabbed the microphone out of Taylor's hand during her acceptance speech. The Shake It Off singer had just been presented with the Best Female Video gong for You Belong with Me.

"Thank you so much," she said. "I always dreamed about what it would be like to maybe win one of these someday, but I never actually thought it would have happened. I sing country music so thank you so much for giving me a chance to win a VMA award."

Kanye then swooped in, making his surprise interruption on stage, announcing: "Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'm gonna let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time." Beyoncé had been nominated for the same award for her hit video Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).

During Sunday night's ceremony in Los Angeles, Taylor lost out on three awards – Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance – for Shake It Off.

The 25-year-old singer didn't let her defeat dampen her spirit, however, as she was spotted pulling out her famous dance moves throughout the evening and looked to be having the time of her life.

Kanye seemed almost ready to recreate his 2009 moment – this time with Beck. When the alternative rock singer was handed the Album of the Year award for Morning Phase – beating Beyoncé for her eponymous album – Kanye got up from his seat and approached the stage.

The rapper quickly changed his mind and returned back to his place, but later voiced his opinion backstage, saying: "Beck needs to respect artistry. He should have given his award to Beyoncé."
