You might think that being a famous TV actress would make you immune to fangirling at major red carpet events — but you’d be wrong. Even Nina Dobrev experiences an overwhelming feeling of freaking out when she meets someone she thinks is the bomb dot com. Who did the Vampire Diaries actress go gaga over at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards?


“My #fangirl moment of the night.... Meeting @Madisonziegler1313 from "chandelier" music video. Soooo talented! #VMA,” Nina captioned the adorable Instagram photo of her posing with the Dance Moms star. This selfie is totally cute and it’s pretty obvious that Nina knelt down to get level with the 11-year-old dance prodigy.

Just in case you’ve been living under a rock the past few months, Maddie has become an overnight success story after starring in Sia’s music video for “Chandelier” a few months back. The video is a monumental achievement and was nominated for “Video of the Year” at the 2014 VMAs — though it ended up losing to Miley Cyrus and her “Wrecking Ball” video. We see big things happening for Maddie in the coming years and with fans like Nina, you know she’s going to take the entertainment world by storm!
