Trevor Noah had the hardest job at the 66th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, but he held his own — and he got the ultimate stamp of approval.

In a sweet moment backstage captured and shared on TikTok, Taylor Swift greeted the comedian, 39, with a hug and praised him for such a successful night as host of the awards show — for his fourth consecutive year.

She embraced the former Daily Show host as she told him he did a “beautiful job tonight, you really did.”

“I don’t know how you do it,” Swift, 34, added.

After greeting Noah, she embraced another person standing beside him who she called “the best.”

“I’ve seen you running around all night, I don’t know how you do it,” she told him.

During Noah’s opening monologue, he gave Swift a shoutout as she entered the Crypto.com Arena a few minutes late with an entourage including Jack Antonoff and his wife Margaret Qualley.

"Are you seeing what's happening right now as Taylor Swift moves through the room?" Noah asked the crowd. "The local economy around those tables improves. Can you see you get this magic right now? Look at this magic. Lionel Richie, now Lionel Wealthy. Look at that."

He also poked fun at the camera time Swift gets at NFL games, where she cheers on boyfriend Travis Kelce. Noah joked that every time the "Cruel Summer" singer is mentioned throughout the night, the cameras will show someone else — who plays football.

"I think it is so unfair how NFL fans have been complaining about the cameras cutting to Taylor Swift? Right? Like she's controlling the cameras at the games.”

"I'm gonna get revenge. Every time someone says Taylor Swift. I'm going to cut the cameras to someone who plays football," he continued, and the cameras panned to Terry Crews.

Taylor Swift accepts the "Best Pop Vocal Album" award for "Midnights" from Trevor Noahonstage during the 66th GRAMMY Awards at Crypto.com Arena on February 04, 2024 in Los Angeles, California.

The night was a big one for Swift, who made history as she collected her fourth Grammy for album of the year for 2022’s Midnights. She’s now the only artist to ever win the coveted category four times, having previously won for Fearless in 2010, 1989 in 2016 and Folklore in 2021.

"I would love to tell you that this is the best moment in my life. But I feel this happy when I've finished a song or when I've cracked the code to a bridge that I love or when I'm shot listing a music video, or when I'm rehearsing with my dancers or my band or getting ready to go to Tokyo to play a show," she said, teasing the 2024 start of The Eras Tour in Japan on Feb. 7.

"For me, the award is the work. All I want to do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much. It makes me so happy. It makes me unbelievably blown away that it makes some people happy who voted for this award too. All I want to do is keep doing this. So thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do what I love so much.”

In an Instagram post shared minutes later, she shared the album's cover art as well as several song lyrics that were written down on a piece of paper in Swift's handwriting. "And so I enter into evidence/ My tarnished coat of arms / My muses, acquired like bruises / My talismans and charms / The tick, tick, tick of love bombs/ My veins of pitch black ink."

Underneath the lyrics, Swift wrote, "All's fair in love and poetry ... Sincerely, The Chairman of The Tortured Poets Department."
