A blast from the past. Before they were the Carters, they were just Beyonce and Jay-Z. The folks over at MTV dug up the power couple's first TV appearance together from 'TRL' way back in 2002.

When asked how they met, the two awkwardly side-stepped any hint of a romance. "We met a long time ago; award shows, a lot of different performances," Bey said.

Jay expertly then stepped in to steer the conversation away from revealing any more dish. "You know, people, you see each other, and you respect each other's music, there's always that conversation 'We oughta do something!' he said. "[It's] that time filler. When that time filler turns into something real, it's music."

“I was 18 when we first met, 19 when we started dating. There was no rush. No one expected me to run off and get married,” Beyonce later said in an interview.

Watch them hesitate then spill details on their initial union in the video above.
