After ALL the Twitter drama, looks like there's no "Bad Blood" between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj.

During Minaj's opening performance at tonight's VMAs, Swift—donning a red beaded fringe to complement the rapper's sparkly carnival-inspired look—made a surprise appearance.  It began with Minaj's hit "The Night Is Still Young," then the pair finished things off with a duet of Swift's vengeance anthem "Bad Blood." Watch the performance, below:
