Woman Taking A Stealth Photo Of Taylor Swift At Grammys Goes Viral

This year's Grammy Awards were, as always, a star-studded affair filled with honors and applause, but one of the night's rather remarkable achievements went largely unnoticed at the time.

In the hours since the broadcast, footage has emerged of a woman taking what may be among the stealthiest celebrity photos of all time.

Seated just two spots away from Taylor Swift, she raises her camera phone as if she's snapping a picture of something straight ahead.

Woman taking a stealth photo of Taylor Swift at Grammys goes viral
Manika channeled a Vegas showgirl in this outrageous, nearly nude ensemble. The silver fringe barely covered her lady parts in the front (and didn't at all in the back!) and was very close to a wardrobe malfunction. (Photo by John Shearer/WireImage)
Joy Villa definitely turned heads with her sky-high hat and her very minimal outfit, which consisted of thorn-like attachments. It all feels very "Game of Thrones."  (Photo by Lester Cohen/WireImage)
Now that's a lot of leg! Ciara showed exactly what she's working with in a jaw-dropping gown that had a serious side-slit. The up-to-there slit combined with the very low back and side were wowza. (Photo by Larry Busacca/Getty Images for NARAS)

Wowza! We know Diamond White best as the adorable teen star from the "X Factor" 2012, but she's all grown up -- and rocking a completely wild and nude outfit. The 17-year-old star turned heads with this outrageous look, which barely covered up her lady parts.

"Burning House" singer Cam rocked a yellow gown from Chakra that was totally demure and sweet up top and totally wild on the bottom. The look resembles a lemon cream pie, don't you think? (Photo by Lester Cohen/WireImage)
Furry! Faith Evans went for a classic black and white look, but the one side with a full fur stole is a little wild. Pun intended.. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images for NARAS)
Hello Kitty? Apparently Dencia thought that going to the Grammy Awards in a pink onesie embellished with crosses and Hello Kitty animals would be cool. We're not so sure. Also, check out those shoes! (Photo credit should read VALERIE MACON/AFP/Getty Images)

In theory, Skylar Grey's look should be really cool and awesome. In reality, we can't stop staring at the faces on the dress and the super sheer parts. What do you think? (Photo by Jeff Vespa/WireImage)

Jumpsuits are all the rage, but Kendra Foster's flouncy white jumpsuit and pompadour has us scratching our heads. (Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImage)
Tove Lo was on the mark with the sheer trend but the bull ring and the red eyes are a bit much. (Photo by Jason Merritt/Getty Images for NARAS)
While this look doesn't seem outrageous at first -- it is when you look exactly where that hemline is for Vanessa Lachey. The host and reality star is almost showing off too much with that sheer hemline. (Photo credit should read VALERIE MACON/AFP/Getty Images)
We're not so sure about all that white fur Andra Day! The singer's emerald green dress was tight and ruffled and screamed 1980s -- but the white fur took it to a new level of outrageous.   (Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImage)
The Mavricks definitely brought the bright colors to the award show with their out-there ensembles. (Photo credit should read VALERIE MACON/AFP/Getty Images)
Z LaLa went the early Lady Gaga route in this wild hat and dress. The gown felt very fairy tale-esque with web details and a spider on top. (Photo by John Shearer/WireImage)
We don't know what to say about Ghost's outfits other than -- we're a little scared. (Photo by John Shearer/WireImage)
What in the world? Musician Gary Clark Jr. and model Nicole Trunfio hit the red carpet and it's safe to say that Nicole stole the show with her wild jumpsuit. The skintight look, with butterfly sleeves, and a plunging neckline was all wrong.. (Photo by Steve Granitz/WireImage)

However, in the seconds before Swift is to find out if she has won the award for best song, the lady slowly moves the device downward and in the singer's direction.

Though she likely intended to capture Swift's reaction to another Grammy win, that particular award went to Ed Sheeran.
