Hey, at least JT stopped himself before actually getting onstage during Taylor's time in the spotlight, unlike someone else we know ... Ahem, Kanye West.

And, also unlike the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, fans were loving T Swift and Justin's bit.

Photos of Taylor's over-the-top freakout have even been made into some pretty great memes already. Our personal favorite? "Justin Timberlake just told Taylor Swift there is no open bar, and that John Mayer and Harry Styles are here."

Yup, pretty perfect. But that was just the cherry on top of Taylor's night at the iHeartRadio awards.

On top of the Best Lyrics award, the "Blank Space" singer took home Artist of the Year and Song of the Year, making her the winningest artist of the night. You go, girl!
