Starry Eyed

Meet Ellie Goulding. How adorbale is she?! Ellie is the newest British singer-songwriter to start making herself big here in the states. Her latest accomplishment....Ellie was the sole performer asked to perform at the Royal reception at Buckingham Palace. Just a light Friday night performance...right! Her cover of Elton John's "Your Song" was William & Kate's first dance. Yea, that wedding. On top of that, she is the musical guest this week on the 700th episode of SNL hosted by Tina Fey.

 

"Your Song"

 

A few other things she can add to her list of accomplishments:

-Ellie was the #1 selling new artist in the UK last year

-Winner of the Brit Awards 2010 - Critics Choice Award

-She got her start supporting Little Boots on tour in the UK. Smart choice.

-She's a runner......and has a website devoted to her running all over the world. Oh, and it's sponsored by Nike....no biggie.
