The video for “Bad Blood” wasn’t the only thing Taylor Swift debuted at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards.

Calvin Harris‘ place in her inner circle was also cemented in the most public of ways: a few awards show hugs – and a kiss!

Before she picked up each of her awards – including Top Artist, Top Female Artist, Billboard Chart Achievement, and Top Billboard 200 Album – Swift, 25, got a supportive squeeze from Harris before she took the stage.

(She also got hugs from the other members of her front row crew: brother Austin, who graduated from college this weekend, Ed Sheeran, and her “Bad Blood” video co-stars Martha Hunt, Hailee Steinfeld and Serayah.)

Swift’s video was so hotly-anticipated that it got its own custom emoji: a bandaid with a black center. It’s a reference to a lyric from the song – “Band-Aids don’t fix bullet holes”

After picking up the award for Top Artist, she started her speech with “Oh, this is such a good night!” before giving a shout out to her brother.

“To anyone who is graduating this year, this is for you!” Swift said. “Congratulations … We have so much more to accomplish and so much more to fight for!”
