The “Good 4 U” singer, 19, was posing backstage at the Sunday, April 3, awards show with her trophies piled in her arms when one fell. The California native was shocked when the award fell in two.
Swift, 32 years old, had to balance four of the statuettes in each hand while taking photos at the 52nd Grammy Awards. The “Blank Space” singer sported an off-the-shoulder gown on the red carpet at the time, while Rodrigo looked just as sparkly this year in a black dress, matching opera-length gloves and double chokers.

“When I was younger, my family lived a few blocks from the Staples Center, where the Grammys took place every year,” the “Deja Vu” singer explained at the time. “I would always walk outside the arena and look at the plaques on the ground with all the winners’ names in wide eyed wonder. I visited the Grammy museum on so many of my weekends because I was so intrigued by the history of this show and the incredible musicians that created it. … I’m beyond humbled. Truly a day I will never forget.”
