Nicki Minaj did double duty in Downtown Los Angeles on Sunday night (28Aug11), dashing from the MTV Video Music Awards to join Taylor Swift onstage across the street.
The R&B star picked up Best Hip-Hop Video prize for Super Bass at the Nokia Theatre awards show and then stunned Swift's fans at the Staples Center by stepping out for a performance with the country star.
Sunday's show ended a four-night stint at the Staples Center for Swift and she made sure it was a star-packed run of shows, welcoming Justin Bieber, comedienne Ellen DeGeneres and Jason Mraz onstage, but it was Sunday's special guest who brought the house down with a performance of Super Bass.
Swift danced around and offered up a vocal assist on the chorus.
After the show, Swift tweeted, "The combination of the Insane crowd tonight and @Nickiminaj joining me onstage for Superbass = #IwishthatIcouldhavethismoment4life."
