Taylor Swift is all about the girl power.

The 26-year-old singer tweeted her congratulations to the "Final Five" U.S. women's gymnastics team -- Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian -- after they won gold in the team final competition on Tuesday. The sweet message posted on Wednesday marks the first tweet since July 17, when Swift tweeted her response to Kim Kardashian leaking snippets of her taped conversation with Kanye West over his song "Famous."

"Sending my biggest congratulations to Simone, Aly, Laurie, Gabby and Madison!" Swift wrote, alongside an American flag emoji. "YOU DID IT GIRLS!! #FinalFive."

Of course, Swift isn't the only star giving the U.S. women's gymnastics team a shout-out, particularly Biles, the 19-year-old three-time world all-around champion. On Sunday, Kardashian tweeted that her 3-year-old daughter, North, was already trying to copy Biles' skills.

"Aww that is just too cute!" Biles tweeted back. "She totally needs a #gkSimone leo and she'll be my mini me!"

And perhaps the Final Five can someday join Swift on stage? Last July, the "Shake It Off" singer shocked the whole crowd during her concert in New Jersey when she brought out the U.S. Women's World Cup championship team.

"Got to welcome the U.S. Women's Soccer Team home after their World Cup Victory," Swift wrote on Instagram along with a picture of her and the team waving American flags. "I LOVE THEM AND THEY ARE THE NICEST."
