The pop powerhouses took to Twitter to share their mutual admiration for one another, and it was adorable.

Smith was quick to return the love, replying: “You are truly wonderful in every way Ms Clarkson. All my love forever and always. Hope to see you soon!!!!!”
Clarkson continued to gush about the British Grammy winner, even proposing a duet next time they're together, responding: "We should probably sing together at some point if we’re ever in the same neighborhood again. Just sayin'," then adding: "love your new song!"

WHEN JOHN MAYER WAS LEFT SPEECHLESS AFTER NICKI MINAJ TWEETED HIM
"I spend an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like me or not," wrote a thoughtful Mayer. Within minutes, the musician got a steamy response — from Minaj herself. Making a reference to Mayer's 2002 track "Your Body Is a Wonderland," Minaj posed the question: "Would my body be your wonderland?" The rapper followed up by tweeting, “Asking for a friend."
Mayer was left (understandably) speechless by the quick and innuendo-filled retort. "Please hold on, losing my s—," he wrote back. "This isn't my reply yet." And it seems like Mayer is still reeling from the interaction; the guitar hero still has yet to reply.
