Olivia Rodrigo Accidentally Broke One Of Her Grammy Awards Shortly After Her Big Win.. Olivia Rodrigo who had quite a big night the just concluded Grammy Awards, broke one of the awards she took home.
19-year-old Rodrigo who won for best new artist, best pop solo performance and best pop vocal album, accidentally dropped one of her trophies backstage and it broke apart.
She tried to balance her three Grammys backstage at Sunday night’s awards show, only to drop and break one just like her idol Taylor Swift did 12 years prior.
A photographer tried to reassure Rodrigo by saying, “That’s all right” before jokingly adding, “We’ll just put it on your bill” in a video tweeted by Variety.
An assistant came to rescue and temporarily put the trophy back together so the “Good 4 U” singer could finish taking photos with three awards she won out of the seven categories she was nominated in.
Rodrigo has long cited Swift as one of the biggest influences on her music career. The two finally got in touch after the “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” star’s meteoric rise to fame last year, with Rodrigo telling Billboard that the “All Too Well” singer had sent her a note to congratulate her on her success.
During the ceremony, Rodrigo had many memorable moments. She made her Grammy performance debut performing “Drivers License” inside a vintage white Mercedes-Benz convertible parked onstage. During BTS’ performance of their chart-topper “Butter,” member V went viral for playfully flirting with Rodrigo in the audience.
