Olivia Rodrigo accidentally broke a Grammy like her idol Taylor Swift


All hail Olivia Rodrigo: a new Grammy winner…and a dropper.

The “Drivers License” singer made her mark at the 2022 ceremony in Las Vegas on Sunday night, where she picked up three of her seven award nominations for her chart-topping debut album, “Sour.”

While Rodrigo may not have seen the Grammys windfall some had expected, holding all three awards at once, including the Best New Artist trophy, proved to be a bit of a challenge.

After the ceremony, the Disney star confidently posed for photos with her award. That is, until she accidentally drops one of her golden gramophones, which shatters it.

In footage of the accident, Rodrigo loses one of her awards, which hits the red carpet floor, as a wall of photographers take pictures and she makes a shocked face.

“I’m fine,” one of them told him. “We’ll put it on your bill.”

Luckily, an assistant was on hand to reassemble the trophy and return it in pristine condition to Rodrigo, who laughed off the incident and posed with the three awards without further mishap.

Fans of Rodrigo, who has long cited Taylor Swift as a musical inspiration, were quick to notice that the “Folklore” singer also took a step back at the 2010 Grammy Awards.

Just like Rodrigo, Swift lost one of her awards at the ceremony, where she picked up her first of three Album of the Year trophies, while posing for photos.

Rodrigo is in esteemed company, as other stars have also mishandled their Grammys material, including Adele, who beat her award in half on stage at the ceremony in 2017.

Despite her temporary setback, Rodrigo had a good night at the 64th Annual Awards, where she ultimately triumphed in the Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album categories.

In her first acceptance speech of the night, an emotional Rodrigo told the crowd, “This is my biggest dream come true. Thanks very much!”

The “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” star was also the second act to hit the stage after Silk Sonic, wowing the crowd with a moving performance of his record-breaking single “Drivers License.”
