Nicki Minaj opened Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards with an explosive performance that included a duet with Taylor Swift, marking a very public truce after their Twitter debate about the VMA nominations earlier this summer.

Together they performed Minaj’s “The Night Is Still Young” and Swift’s “Bad Blood,” but the love fest didn’t stop after the pair left the stage. Minaj and Swift tweeted at each other for the rest of the night, and posted photos of each other to Instagram, shutting down all the haters who still claimed there was animosity between the pop titans.

After their back-and-forth earlier this summer, Swift apologized to Minaj, who told Good Morning America that they had made up after a phone call. “She was super super sweet and she apologized,” Minaj said. “She said, ‘Look, I didn’t understand the big picture of what you were saying but now I get it.’ We’re all good.”

Based on that sentiment, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Minaj join Swift on stage for her 1989 tour before it wraps in December.
