He told judge, Lionel Richie, “my grandmother who is 78 loves you.” She is ecstatic when she walks in and sees her own idol right in front of her. “Ahh!” she exclaimed after she ran to give Richie a big hug.

She had a romantic story to tell. “My husband and I met on Lady,” she says referring to one of his biggest hits. “No way!” exclaims Richie.

“We would dance to Lady and when we got married, we walked down the aisle to Lady.”

What happens next we are sure made this lady’s dream come true!
