Steinfeld serves as a guest mentor for Clarkson on 'The Voice' later this season.
Following a performance celebrating National Cereal Day with Kellogg’s last night (March 6), Hailee Steinfeld went from gushing over her favorite cereal (a Frosted Flakes and Frosted Mini Wheats combo, in case you were curious) to fangirling over Kelly Clarkson. Steinfeld had the chance to work with the newest Voice coach as a guest mentor this season, a situation that younger Hailee would've never seen coming.
“I was so excited when she invited me to advise her team, because what she didn’t know was that she was a huge influence on me when I was younger," Steinfeld told Billboard. "When Kelly was on American Idol my parents surprised me and my brother with tickets to the show. I just remember looking at my dad and having him tell me that one day I would be on that stage too. It was one of those moments that reinforced my dream of pursuing music.”
Steinfeld's time with Clarkson wasn't just a dream come true, though. As the "Most Girls" singer continues to work on her debut album, the 21-year-old took a few pointers from the 35-year-old superstar too.
