After collaborating for their top-five hit ';Airplanes' without ever meeting B.o.B. and Hayley Williams finally met on Saturday at the rehearsal for their VMA performance tonight.
The recorded the song separately AND recorded the music video separately as well. Williams once joked about how the two will never meet and perform the song live someday "via Skype."
It looks like we won't have to tune into Skype any time soon though as the pair is performing live, and yes, together tonight!"Whoa, hi!" Williams said to B.o.B as he ran across the stage.
"We finally met for the first time," he said, turning to an MTV camera excitedly. "I hope I don't mess up."
"I'm gonna trip and fall," Williams said about their big performance tonight. "Catch me, please!"
Then a stage manager broke up the pairs first meeting because they were on a tight schedule and had to get back to rehearsing the number.
Well it took them long enough! I'm thrilled to see them perform tonight.
Are you going to tune into the VMA's
