This Is How Taylor Swift Got Tom Hiddleston to Dance at the Met Gala

Taylor Swift is quite convincing.

In case you missed it, Tom Hiddleston and the “New Romantics” singer had a little dance off at the 2016 Met Gala — and it was pretty much the best video of the night. So how exactly did she get him to boogie his butt off? It’s pretty simple: He loves to dance. “Who doesn’t? It’s a weird one [that it went viral]. I haven’t actually danced for a long time, but I happened to be dancing at the Met Gala because it was a party,” the actor told the Press Association on Thursday (May 5, 2016).

“I was on a table with Taylor Swift and The Weeknd was playing and she said, ‘The thing about these parties is nobody gets up to dance,'” he continued. “She, as a musician, was like, ‘We’ve got to dance for The Weeknd!’ so we got up and danced.”

Luckily for us, Valentino brand ambassador, Carlos Souza, posted a video on Instagram of the two stealing the dance floor together — and we literally cannot stop watching.
