Ellen Pompeo took to Twitter on Saturday to urge her followers to vote for Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” to win Video of the Year at the VMAs.

As Gossip Cop reported, Swift scored nine MTV Video Music Awards nominations earlier this week, more than any other artist. Two were for “Blank Space,” while “Bad Blood” earned seven, including the top category. All the honors are voted on by fans through online polling, and the winners are to be revealed at the 2015 VMAs ceremony on August 30.

“I have an idea,” tweeted Pompeo. “How about we vote for a certain video over & over & over today?” She included a link to the MTV voting site for Video of the Year, and went on to retweet fans who said they voted, such as the one who replied, “JUST VOTED LIKE 27728282282782288282 TIMES.” And when someone sent Pompeo a photo of her “Grey’s Anatomy” co-star Justin Chambers, the actress announced, “I’m going to make him vote too.”

Pompeo further shared a screengrab from the voting page on Instagram, showing exactly where people should click to vote for Swift. She captioned the shot, “I like this girl like I like [ice cream] @taylorswift.” Pompeo, of course, has been one of Swift’s favorite actresses for some time, sparking a mutual appreciation and friendship.

Pompeo’s “Grey’s Anatomy” character Meredith inspired the name of Swift’s cat, and Pompeo was one of Swift’s celebrity pals to appear in the “Bad Blood” video. She joined some of the video’s others stars at the Billboard Music Awards in May, where Swift and her squad took the stage to officially premiere the clip (see photo above). About an hour after Pompeo’s tweets, Selena Gomez, who played Swift’s rival in the video, also encouraged fans to vote.

“Bad Blood is nominated for video of the year!!! Vote here guys! -Arsyn,” she tweeted, using the name of her “Bad Blood” alter-ego. The plugs for Swift comes a few days after the superstar clashed with Nicki Minaj over the Video of the Year nominees.
