"ooh your kisses, sweeter than honey. but guess what? so is my money." the sassy 6-year-old tapped her way to total stage dominance. "take care, t-c-b." and the story that had everyone talking this year... the dress! is it blue and black... or white and gold? a question that sparked countless buzzfeed articles and threatened to tear families apart. for the record -- it's totally blue and black.
