Way to go, Tom!! Patience pays off!!

Plain White T’s singer lands a date with Delilah
It took five years, one hit song and two Grammy nominations, but Plain White T’s singer Tom Higgenson finally got his date with Delilah.
Delilah DiCrescenzo, 24, the Olympic track hopeful who inspired song-of-the-year nominee Hey There Delilah, will accompany Higgenson, 28, to the Grammys.
She says Higgenson left a voice mail the day the Grammy nominations were announced. Then she read online that he planned to invite her to the Feb. 10 awards ceremony.
The singer finally asked her last week, just before the band left for a European tour.
The two met through a mutual friend. Higgenson wrote Delilah to impress his new crush, but she wasn’t interested, and the long-distance romance depicted in the song is fiction. The single went to No. 1 in Billboard last summer. It’s up for best pop performance by a duo/group and song of the year.
“It’s kind of weird, because we still don’t really know each other,” Higgenson says. “I don’t think it’ll be awkward, but it’ll be interesting. I’ve never been on a first date that has been this high-profile.”
