Sophia Grace and Rosie Meet Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum + More at the Grammys
The Grammy red carpet was aflutter with stars of all kinds on Sunday night, but none so cute perhaps as 8-year-old Sophia Grace Brownlee and her 5-year-old sidekick Rosie, who were covering the red carpet for ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’ The girls, who were discovered via YouTube, have been seen on past episodes of ‘Ellen’ rapping, meeting Nicki Minaj and even serving as Ellen’s correspondents at the American Music Awards.
Because the tiara and tutu-clad, high-voiced little girls from Essex, England, with their adorable British accents, did such a great job covering the AMAs, Ellen sent them to the Grammys, where they met stars like Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Flo Rida and Maroon 5. When the girls met Lady Antebellum for their second time this past weekend (the first was at the AMAs), Hillary Scott asked who their favorite star is that they’ve met so far, and without skipping a beat Sophia Grace answered, “You!”
After a short “bubble party” with Lady A on camera, the girls met up with some of their favorite pop acts, with Rosie telling Rihanna she’s her favorite singer. Then, pointing to her own gold, sparkling shirt, Sophia Grace began to speculate about what it was going to be like to meet Taylor Swift.
“I bet you any money that Taylor Swift, when she comes up, she’ll be wearing gold because gold really suits her, and in a magazine I’ve got it’s got gold in all of it. So I bet you she’ll be wearing gold,” she dished to viewers. When the cameras show the country starlet making her entrance across the way, a high-pitched squeal of delight can be heard from about three feet above the red carpet. “It’s Taylor Swift!” Sophia screamed. “And she’s wearing gold!”
After talking to the girls for a bit, Swift looked at the ‘Ellen’ cameras and said what everyone else was thinking. Pointing down at the girls she just gushed, “This is cute.” Having seen their favorite stars, the bedazzled little girls ended their dream day with a giant helping of cotton candy.
