The rapper and pop star's loyal fandoms are well aware of the mutual adoration they share for each other, which made headlines last year when it was revealed that Cardi performed to "Bad Romance" (backstage dancers, signature dance moves and all) during her high school talent show.

Shortly after the hip-hop superstar won the Grammy for Best Rap Album, photographers spotted the pair mixing and mingling backstage. What ensued next was nothing short of pop culture magic.
