Ellie Goulding is a Royal Wedding Singer! The Star Dishes on Performing at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 2011 Nupitals

 

“Anything Can Happen” at a royal wedding. A celebrity can even get a little starstruck! Just ask singing sensation Ellie Goulding who just opened up about, what is in her opinion, her most “professional” gig to date — singing at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 2011 wedding!

Is there an official ‘Royal Wedding Singer’ title in the British monarchy? If so, we’re bestowing the crown to the Grammy-nominated Goulding, who lent her impressive pipes to the unforgettable nupitals of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.

Sure, a number of celebs have surprisingly moonlighted as wedding singers. John Legend has been known to take a break from serenading his wife Chrissy Teigen from time to time to croon to newlyweds on the reception dance floor. Last year, Ed Sheeran also crashed a wedding to surprise the couple with an impromptu performance. Even Justin Timberlake and Chris Martin previously worked a few nuptial gigs. Bet none of them can add royalty to their resume, though!

Goulding recently opened up to People about what it was like to sing at the wedding of the century and, yes, it was just as scary as it sounds! “I did their first dance and like, talk about scary, ” the British songstress said. “I was so nervous, my hands were shaking.”

Goulding performed a rendition of Elton John’s “Your Song” for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first dance — an epic moment, we’re sure, but her nerves are what sticks out the most when the singer recalls the performance. “That’s one of my memories, looking down at [my hand] and just seeing this, ” she said, giving a quick reenactment of her quivering hands.

Despite her stardom and brilliant voice, Goulding didn’t even believe she was going to actually get to perform for the royal couple, leading up to the ceremony. “I thought I was a decoy, ” she admitted. “I thought I was a decoy for someone else. It could happen! At the time, Gaga was everywhere, and rightly so, she was killing it, and you know, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and then you know, me.”

But regardless of her disbelief — and crazy nerves! — Goulding still rocked her royal wedding performance, well, like a queen!
