According to Brooke and Madison’s mom, Stephanie Morris, Taylor Swift’s mom handpicked girls out of the crowd to attend the musician’s private “T-party” after the performance. The girls wore special shirts, and held lit signs and guitars to help them get noticed.


“It was an amazing experience for them and something they will never forget!” said Stephanie.
