Twitter campaign #greygreyfortaytay gets megastar's resounding Yes for 70-year-old theatre legends to sing her song

Taylor Swift gives her blessing to Belvoir Street using Shake it Off, retains Queen of Nice crown

Taylor Swift has answered the prayers of the cast of the play Seventeen,, who had been waiting in anticipation to see if they could use her hit Shake It Off. Taking to Twitter with #greygreyfortaytay, they quickly gathered many supporters.

Singer Tim Minchin called on a famous buddy to lend a hand:

The septuagenarian cast made up of Australian acting royalty, were initially unfamiliar with the catchy tune, and had spent weeks learning it, as it was needed for a crucial part of the play – their last day of school as 17-year-olds.

“There’s this great moment where they Shake It Off, and they know all the words and have amazing moves,” Belvoir director Anne-Louise Sarks said on Twitter.

After learning that permission by the publishers had been denied, Belvoir St took to Twitter, where the hashtag #greygreyfortaytay took off and reached all the way to the megastar herself.

Here’s the celebratory moment the cast heard all their hard work learning the song and campaigning for Tay Tay’s permission paid off:

However, Swift did make one misstep. Apparently wishing a theatre production good luck is NOT the way to go.
