Even when she's not in attendance, Taylor Swift can still steal the spotlight at an awards show.

Last night (April 20) at the TimesCenter in New York, the 7th Shorty Awards (hosted by Rachel Dratch) celebrated the best in social media, from Vine to Twitter to Instagram to emojis (Poop Face won emoji of the year and was, in fact, present to accept the honor).

But it can't be an awards show without Taylor Swift, right? She won best singer for her indelible social media presence and sent in a video acceptance speech that was classic Swift.

"When I was first told the news that I'd won a Shorty Award I was conflicted, because I'm very tall," Swift deadpanned. "I did not understand what the honor was for. Now I understand it's because you guys have been unbelievable on social media, and I'm really happy about that. My second thought, just for the record, was [rapping] 'shorty wanna ride wit me, ride wit me, we can get low.'"

Watch Swift rap Young Buck's 2004 hit -- and then chastise herself for doing so -- below. 

Perhaps more importantly, Bill Nye the Science Guy was in attendance. After winning for best science social media presence, he busted some legitimately smooth dance moves to the Miracles' 1975 classic "Love Machine" while handing out the Shorty for "best in weird" (won by SavedYouAClick). It seems his Dancing With the Stars stint paid off.
