Nick Jonas was honored with the task of presenting Billboard Women in Music’s “Icon” award to his first and forever celebrity crush, Shania Twain. The special moment at Friday’s ceremony was enough to make Nick, a star in his own right, weak in the knees.
Nick, starstruck, couldn’t help himself from using the stage to gloat about sweet revenge. “To all the mean kids at school who made fun of me for singing ‘Man! I Feel Like a Woman,’ suck it—I’m getting a hug,” the singer told the crowd.
After the long-awaited hug was shared and the night was over, Nick continued to relish the moment with a series of Instagram posts.”That moment your lifelong crush knows you exist…#stilltheone,” Nick wrote alongside a photo of Shania holding his face.
