Eden Sher’s life highlight also happens to be her most mortifying moment—and it involves interviewing Taylor Swift on a red carpet.

For EW’s Greatest Story Ever Told video series, The Middle star looked back at the 2012 American Music Awards, where she and Lance Bass were supposed to interview Swift. But, as Sher says, the interview didn’t really happen: Instead, Sher recited lyrics from one of Swift’s songs to Swift and talked about how her music makes her cry. (We’d do the same, Eden.)

The Middle returns for its seventh season Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. See the rest of ABC’s premiere dates here.
