Taylor Swift suffered every nominee’s nightmare at the Grammys 2014 last night when she mistakenly thought she had won an award when she hadn’t… and it was all caught on camera. Oof!
The 24-year-old I Knew You Were Trouble singer was nominated for Album of the Year, but her Red album lost out to Daft Punk’s hit Random Access Memories, instead.
Due to both titles starting with the same letter, poor Taylor had a bit of an ‘oops’ moment as the winner was announced when she thought (for a nanosecond) that she had won – as did her thrilled record label team sitting behind her.
GIFs capturing Taylor’s inappropriately thrilled reaction quickly went viral on Twitter. But while many cringed for the US starlet, we thought Taylor Swift handled her very public error like a real pro as she graciously transformed her shocked face into a casual clap for the worthy winners. Smooth.
Still, while she may have lost out on a Grammys 2014 award, at least Taylor can sit happy knowing she won LOOK’s best dressed on the night gong for that gorgeous gold lamè Gucci Première gown of hers. Hot hot hot!
