Playing live on stage with our favorite band is a dream that all of us share, but it actually came true for one eleven-year old girl in Cincinnati, Ohio when she got to perform live with Green Day.

Check out how it happened below!

Sadie Aseere was rewarded with lawn seats to see Green Day after getting straight A's to finish off the fifth grade. After a good Samaritan offered Sadie and her friend, Kate, front row tickets, Sadie found herself only inches away from her favorite band.

At one point in the show, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong asked if anyone in the crowd knew how to play guitar. Sadie had actually been taking guitar lessons for the last two years and it must have all led up to this moment because the next thing she knew a security guard was lifting her up to perform with Green Day.

Check out the video below.

"It was really nerve wracking but after a while I got a little more comfortable up there," Sadie told Fort Thomas Matters. We'd be nervous too, but Sadie totally killed it! Our favorite moment of the entire video had to be when Billie Joe yelled out her name to the crowd as the entire crowd chanted her name. It turns out that was Sadie's favorite part too!

"There were 20,000 people shouting my name!” exclaimed Sadie.

She'll always have a physical item to remember the amazing memory as well because Green Day let her keep the autographed guitar she played with, which is signed by all three members. Does it get any cooler than that?

What'd you think of Sadie's performance? Let us know in the comments!
