The 25-year-old singer was petrified the 'Like A Virgin' hitmaker would not live up to her expectations and after being told the 56-year-old star had heaped praise on her music, saying she cannot get her songs out of her head, the blonde beauty refused to believe it was true.

When told about Madonna's positive comments on the red carpet at the ceremony at the Los Angeles Staples Center last night (08.02.15), she told 'Access Hollywood': "Stop, I will pass out! You can't, don't be lying. Oh my God, I've been so scared to meet her, because it means too much to me.

"When she first said something nice about me in the press a couple of weeks ago, I was like, 'There's no way it's real, it' too good to be real."

Earlier in the evening, Madonna admitted she was a huge fan of the 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' hitmaker's "catchy" songs.

She said: "She writes some damn catchy pop songs. Can't get them out of my head."

Despite Taylor's nerves, she did finally manage to muster up the courage to meet the music legend.

She tweeted: "Madonna is now a person I've met. #TheGrammys (sic)"

Madonna appeared equally as pleased to meet the 'Shake It Off' songstress as she took to Twitter to post a picture of the pair embracing at the ceremony.

She wrote: "Shaking it up back stage at the Grammy's with Taylor!! #livingforlove (sic)"
