So *This* Is How Taylor Swift Convinced Tom Hiddleston to Dance at the Met Gala

It all started with The Weeknd....

Other than Nicki Minaj's epic side-eye at Demi Lovato, the highlight of 2016's Met Gala had to be footage of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston turning it up to the tune of "Crazy in Love." While Taylor is no stranger to dancing (see: literally every awards show ever), it was somewhat unexpected to see Hiddleston cut it up—but, hey, when Taylor asks you to dance, you don't say no.

"I love dancing, who doesn't?" the actor explained to the Press Association. "I was on a table with Taylor Swift  and The Weeknd was playing and she said, 'The thing about these parties is nobody gets up to dance' and you're making music. She, as a musician, was like, 'We've got to dance for The Weeknd' so we got up and danced.  I didn't know it was going to ping 'round the world, but it's all good."

So, can we all agree that the best part of this explanation is the sentence "I was on a table with Taylor Swift?"
