In the event you've been too busy obsessing over Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce's fairytale romance to even recall that the singer has had other boyfriends (same), let us take you back nine years ago to February 2015—aka when the singer and DJ Calvin Harris sparked dating rumors and cemented their romance after being spotted in the setting of all love stories: Whole Foods.

A lot of time has passed since those days (including grocery prices, unfort 😭), but the exes still seem to be on good terms after their breakup in 2016. Like, so much so that the DJ apparently cheered Tay on multiple times throughout the night at yesterday's 66th annual Grammy Awards.
While the duo didn't reunite à la Taylor and Harry Styles at last year's ceremony (at least, not that we know of!), an insider at the event *did* make note that Calvin and his wife, Vick Hope, looked happy and at ease at their table and that the musician even clapped for Taylor while she accepted her various awards during the evening.
According to the audience member, Calvin glanced at his ex as she passed by towards the beginning of the program and reportedly laughed and clapped when Grammys host Trevor Noah joked that every time the singer was mentioned throughout the night, the cameras would show someone 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," the comedian began before adding, "I'm gonna give her a break. Every time someone says Taylor Swift, I'm going to cut the cameras to someone who plays football." At that instant, the cameras panned to Terry Crews in a truly hilarious moment.

Honestly? Love to see the good vibes between everyone at last night's ceremony! Especially since the former couple's breakup went through a few hardships after the DJ denied collaborating with the singer in an interview following the release of his 2016 single with Rihanna "This Is What You Came For," which we now know Tay co-wrote.
"You know, we haven't even spoken about [collaborating]. I can't see it happening, though...she's about to take a long break," Calvin said in an On Air with Ryan Seacrest interview on April 29, 2016 while promoting the song—a move that seemingly contradicted his work IRL with Taylor. Reports later surfaced that she had been hurt by his comments and that the entire ordeal led to the end of their relationship.
Calvin later opened up about the aftermath of the disagreement to British GQ and mused, "It's very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly. The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than the relationship itself. When we were together, we were very careful for it not to be a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense."
