(long post) OKAY SO HERES WHAT HAPPENED AT THE ELLEN SHOW TODAY:
so my mom and i drove down to LA yesterday evening to get a room near ellen’s studio so we could go there early in the morning to try and get “day of” tickets for the show. once we checked into our room that night, we ran down to the studio to see where we should go in the morning and we met this security guard who literally told us that we’d have a “99.9%” chance of getting into the show (lmao fuck you asshole) and i lost all hope pretty much and i almost cried but my mom was really supportive and said we should just get up early the next day and go to the studio anyway. SO we did and there were maybe like 10 people there already at 6 in the morning and slowly over the course of the next few hours, more and more people showed up and lined up behind us. at some point a lady came out and counted us all and said she’d have info for us at 11 so we waited, and wHILE WE FUCKING WAITED THESE BLACK SUVs STARTED PULLING UP INTO THE ENTRANCE FOR ELLEN AND THEY JUST SAT THERE SO WE ALL STARTED SCREAMING FAN CHANTS AND SINGING DNA but nothing really happened so we were like “was that rlly them orrr…” SO THEN we waited for a few more hours and at some point an ellen golf cart came out and the ladies counted us again and then a couple more hours passed anddddd a lady came out and quieted us and said “we’re trying to figure out what we can do for you guys. we’re gonna try to at least get you guys into the riff raff room so you can see them on the TV but not live” and everyone was very happy. about 30-40 minutes later they came out and asked who was over 18 and could prove it so everyone old enough did that and they were taken away and let into the ellen building first (they were let into the performance room to see BTS live) and the rest of us were let into the building but you had to be 15+ (you could tell some werent bc they got really sad). we all sat in a long hallway and i was at the front by the door leading to the riff raff room and i got to walk in first which was cool and i sat w my mom on a long couch bench thingy in this spot where if i looked through this little hallway thing i could see a crack where the lights from the stage were and i could see the back of some audience members. then BTS came onto the TVs in there and performed Mic Drop, then they went into her actual studio thing and got interviewed briefly (all the while, the security where we were kept glancing at each other and smiling at us and shit and then they told us to stand up and come close to this staircase) tHEN ELLEN GOT UP AND SAID SOMETHING LIKE “we have some other fans back there in the riff raff room” AND FUCKING BROUGHT THEM BACK THERE TO COME SEE US AND I WAS AT THE FRONT SO THEY WERE LEGIT LIKE TEN FEET AWAY??? AND THEY JUST SMILED AND WAVED A LOT AND THEY LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME IN PERSON LIKE,, JUST AS PERFECT ITS INSANE? AND IT WAS SO BRIEF BUT I WAS SOBBING. tHen they went back out and to the performance room again and they performed DNA and thats pretty much it! but i sobbed from the very beginning of Mic Drop bc their mics were playing on speakers in the room we were in too and it was just like WOW THEYRE SO CLOSE?? and i pretty much cried nonstop until we got on the freeway back home.
