John Travolta's awkward encounter with Taylor Swift

John Travolta presented Taylor Swift with the award for 'Video of the Year' at the VMAs last night.

However, he awkwardly confused RuPaul's Drag Race queen Jade Jolie for the hit-maker.

A video has gone viral of the Grease star attempting to hand the trophy to Jade on stage at the VMAs.

He soon realised his mistake and quickly tried to redeem himself by laughing and gently patting her shoulder.

In fairness to John, she does look exactly like Taylor.

Jade is also well known for her impression of the singer so we can understand the blunder.

Fan reactions

Viewers have been reacting to John's slip up on social media.

One wrote, 'To be fair to him, she was dressed as her and did look like her! #VMAs'
