Sure, Taylor Swift took home the top prize Sunday night (April 1) at the Academy of Country Music Awards. But no one got slimed at that awards show.

The night before, Taylor got a trophy for community service from first lady Michelle Obama at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards.

Mrs. Obama gave Taylor the Big Help Award for all of Taylor's work with kids' charities and with tornado and flood victims. The first lady said Taylor is someone "who is going to keep making sparks fly for all of us in the years ahead."

As for Taylor, well, she was pretty psyched to meet the first lady.

"I'm so honored. I have always wanted to meet you," Taylor said. "This is amazing. I am so honored to be receiving this award from the first lady of the United States. I am freaking out."

Gotta give props to the first lady, who didn't freak out when—sitting in the audience—she got hit with some of the slime dumped on Justin Bieber and Will Smith.
