You know, we had an amazing time last night…but if we could have traded places with anyone for just five minutes, it would have been the Staples Center valet!
Last night, shortly after the Grammys were over, Lea Michele tweeted out the most amazing news. While waiting for her car to be brought around, a legend came to her side to introduce herself.
It was Barbra
Sharing with unimaginable bliss, Lea tweeted:
"As if this night at the Grammys wasn't amazing enough…waiting at the valet… Mrs Barbra Streisand came up to me. I can barely breath…
She was so wonderful, kind and beyond nice. I can't believe I just met my idol. I feel so blessed and thankful right now…"
The part she's leaving out is after she introduced herself, Barbra asked if Lea wouldn't mind dueting on Happy Days Are Here Again right in the parking lot. A band materialized out of a nearby bush and the pair swelled the air with magic and music, while for just for that single moment in time, all wars ceased and all hate vanished at the sound of their harmonious voices.
No, sorry, wait, that's just how we imagined it play out in our heads. Never mind.
We're so happy for you, Lea. It isn't very often that you get to meet your idols and now that we're sure she is a fan of the show, we hope Babs gave you her blessing to continue singing her catalogue. We know it's always a treat for us!
P.S. - Did anyone see Lea sing My Man at the MusiCares benefit last Friday??? We want to see it soooo bad!
