By now you've probably already freaked out over Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift getting snapped looking very cozy and coupled up, but don't for one moment think that those two getting together was completely out of the blue. If you watched videos of those two dancing together at the 2016 Met Gala, then you know Taylor and Tom have showed off their chemistry before. 

During a Met Gala afterparty, the "Blank Space" singer and Marvel star had a seriously competitive dance off. But even if the dancing was serious, the mood between them was not. Tom and Taylor obviously clicked right away, or at least enough for them to get down together on the dance floor.

Here's our GIF play-by-play of the sparks flying between the Brit and the pop star:

Right away you can see that these two are in it to win it:

Suddenly, Taylor faces Tom menacingly. Almost as if she's challenging him. That's a bold move:

You see that little hand gesture she does? That's not a dance move. That's a threat. Taylor came to dance, not dawdle:

Tom is in his own little world with the air punching. That's a classic dance-off technique that's been taught for decades. Maybe centuries:

Now they're starting to enter each other's spaces. This could spell disaster. Or…

 What's this?! The song change seems to throw them off a bit:

You can see Taylor yelling at her coach on the sidelines, while Tom takes an opportunity to rest up for the final part of the match:

You all just witnessed two athletes in their prime making sweet, sweet love to the dance floor using only their rhythm and body movements. What a time to be alive! They entered the arena as competitors and now they are leaving as allies.
