M Exclusive: Our day at Arthur Ashe Kids' Day with The Wanted, Mindless Behavior and Carly Rae Jepsen!


Hey M Girls,

We had the best.day.ever on Saturday at Arthur Ashe Kids' Day -- the opening event for the 2012 US Open! The event was a day full of fun fam activities, amazing performances and lots of tennis -- and we were there for it all! Here's our photo diary from the big day:

When we first got there, we caught up with YouTube sensations Megan and Liz who were performing at the event! They 'fessed up that they were a little nervous, but super-excited to hit the stage:

Then, it was time for the big concert event, featuring The Wanted, Mindless Behavior, Carly Rae Jepsen, Rachel Crow and Owl City!

We caught up with The Wanted, who were totally sweating (but still adorbs) in the summer heat! They spilled that they were loving being in NYC -- a far cry from their British roots!

Here's the guys goofing around on the courts -- they made us seriously LOL!

Carly Rae was as cute as can be in a tennis-ready outfit! She was preparing to close up the day with her catchy summer hit, "Call Me Maybe":

Our good buds, Mindless Behavior were also on hand to perform their biggest hits:

...But that didn't stop them from waving hi to fans first! From the moment they entered the room, fans were SCREAMING! And Princeton kept stopping to say hi to everyone he passed...aw!

We were totally excited to bump into Glee star, Matthew Morrison! He was on hand as a guest umpire for the event -- and M can confirm: He's super-nice in person!

Another special guest for the day was swimmer and Gold medalist, Missy Franklin! She was super-excited to see Carly Rae Jepsen perform "Call Me Maybe" because she's a he-uge fan!

The amazing day ended with a BIG performance from Carly Rae -- that turned into a flashmob with all of the celeb guests and more! We learned the dance too so that we could join in on the fun! Watch the vid here:

Overall, M had an exciting day at Arthur Ashe Kids' Day! We can't wait to go back and chill with the stars in 2013!

Let's dish: -Which star at AAKD would you most want to meet? Have you ever danced to "Call Me Maybe" with your buds?
