Ellen wasn’t the only big winner at The People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 9. The Wanted won their VERY FIRST award for Best Breakout Artist (yay!) and they decided to say thank you by singing a bluegrass song dedicated to Ellen, since she has been a huge advocate for them. Ellen gave the guys their first big break a year ago today, when she invited them on the show.
The band was so thankful that they decided to surprise Ellen on her show this morning with bouquets of flowers and kisses.
“We never forgot that,” said Jay McGuiness. “It’s been a very good year for us but the whole time, we never forgot. You took a big risk.”
Ellen was flattered but said she knew they would make it big and was happy to help them in any way she could. “Here’s to another year better than that so that you again, dedicate every speech to me,” she said.
What would you do for a bouquet of flowers from The Wanted?
