The 65-year-old was given the job of handing over the Video of the Year award – but things didn’t quite go to plan.

Movie legend John Travolta has been ruthlessly mocked online after appearing to confuse Taylor Swiftwith a drag queen.

The oblivious Grease great nearly gave the VMA for the Video of the Year to Jade Jolie, who does have a slight resemblance to the super star singer, instead of the 29-year-old. 

Taylor finally got her hands on the prize for You Need To Calm Down after the actor eventually released his mistake.

He smiled as he gave Ru Paul’s Drag Race star Jade a hug as the award finally went to the American.
