Taylor Swift Skipped An Awards Show To See Her Brother's College Play

Instead of attending the MTV Europe Music Awards in Scotland, Taylor Swift went to Notre Dame to see her brother Austin in a play.

Taylor Swift's younger brother and only sibling, Austin, 22, is a student at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana.

He enrolled in fall 2010, transferred to Vanderbilt University in 2011 for his sophomore year, and returned to ND to finish his education in fall 2012.

Austin, a Film, Television and Theatre major, tweeted last week that he would be acting in the department's performance of Six Characters in Search of an Author.

Because she is an excellent sister, Taylor surprised student theatergoers on Sunday by showing up at the play's final performance with her mother.

After the show, Taylor went backstage and posed for pictures with the cast and crew.

It looks like everybody had a good time.

Of course, word immediately got out that there was a celebrity on campus, so by the time Taylor and her mother left the theatre, there was a crowd waiting for them.

She looked a little bit surprised...

But she didn't seem to mind that people were so excited to see her.

Like, really excited.

But sadly, there was no time to linger. With a smile and a wave, Taylor jumped into her car and sped away.
