Olivia Rodrigo won three Grammys at Sunday’s big show: Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance and best Pop Vocal Album. But when the 19-year-old singer attempted to hold all three golden gramophones backstage, she accidentally dropped one of the trophies, breaking it in two. Gasping in shock, her reaction was snapped by photographers, who made light of the moment. “That’s alright,” a photographer told Rodrigo in a clip captured by Variety, “We’ll just put it on your bill. We have your credit card on file.”

An assistant then helped the “Good 4 u” singer reassemble the Grammy so that Rodrigo could continue to pose with her three trophies. The moment marked a bit of déjà vu from the 2010 Grammy Awards, when Taylor Swift accidentally dropped one of the four awards she won that year backstage. Like Rodrigo, Swift’s trophy was quickly put back together.

Rodrigo has been vocal about how Swift, 32, is one of her biggest musical influences and how much it’s meant that she has welcomed her to the music industry. Rodrigo told Billboard last May that Swift sent her a nice note to congratulate her on success of her debut single “Drivers License.”
“I don’t want to divulge too much because it’s really sweet and personal, but she talks a lot about how, I think, you make your own luck in the world,” Rodrigo told the outlet at the time. “And when you do kind things to others, good things come your way.”
That month, the pop stars crossed paths at the 2021 Brit Awards, with Rodrigo posting a fun photo making a silly face with Swift to Instagram.
