This is difficult to watch. Taylor Swift accepts the award for Best Female Video at the 2009 VMA Awards on MTV, and as she’s wrapping up, Kanye West stage-bombs her to shout, “Beyonce (also nominated) has one of the best videos of all time!”

Swift is crestfallen as the rapper hands the microphone back to her. She never really finishes what she wanted to say initially. The camera pulls back to show the audience giving her a standing ovation as she stands alone, a solitary statue in silver, in front of millions of at-home viewers. Somehow, Swift pulled herself together to give a wonderful performance from a New York subway moments later. It was an emotional night for the country singer.
