    she looks great!
    it annoys me that she always has the same hairstyle though… :/
    but i love taylor nonetheless :]

  • mima

    DAMN!! she’s so beautiful!!! great job Taylor!!
    p.s. did anyone else just see her performance – i was crying! HATE to keep dragging it on but just one little comment, i think that may have been directed towards a certain jonas brother… wish he wasn’t such a jerk! oh but i do love them both!

  • strawberryjam

    yeah i agree…she need to change her fashion/makeup.hairstyling team…cause she has the same look even on her downtime… whats up with that??? considering they are paying them big money.

  • kelly

    As someone with naturally curly hair I just wanna say it take one hour and 30 minutes to straighten hair.

    Her performance had me in tears.


    Taylor is very talented….I’m sure a fabulous hairdresser can fix her hair in less time than that, ” KELLY “….Must be nice to have someone style and fix your curly hair, right?……Her performance is always awesome…

  • maryy

    you could tell she was upset on her performance, she was sad
    to sing it. like do you get what i am saying. well yeah, but umm she
    dose need to change her style a little at least shes gotten out of the
    whole cowboy boots with dress shes, young, shes got time. well

  • maryy

    does* sry

  • manda

    Talented kid – but I suggest she packs on a few pounds!!

  • kourtney

    Taylor looks beautiful! her performance made me cry. It was just absolutely beautiful and I absolutely hope she made a certain someone *cough cough* feel bad or awkward. she deserves all the best in the world.

    Love you Taylor!

  • Allison

    I loved her performance of “White Horse”.
    She definitely directed that song to Joe Jonas!
    Especially the part about somebody finding someone who will treat her well – ha ha!

  • Samantha

    i think taylor is showing girls across the world that they dont have to do anything to look amazing they can use theyre natural beauty and still look stunning.
    i missed her performance :( what song did she do?????

  • chelsey

    wow for once she doesnt look awful. But she needs to put on some weight and get some curves. Shes wayy too toothpicky.

  • le

    sorry but taylor needs to change her dress she almost wears the same dress its always silver and shiny she makes millions cant she afford to get different dresses

  • julianne

    Such a pretty young girl….too much make up though.

    Such a beautiful voice…needs to get off of the “victim train”

    Such forced emotion…she can tug at heartstrings at the drop of a hat. It’s called show business, children. Google it.

    Nitey Nite.

  • http://google jessica

    She was awesome in the performance i bet u she was staring joe jonas down what an butthole huh!!

  • jade

    Aww- I just saw Taylor. She was great,but you can tell she’s hurting.
    I feel sorry about that. It did look,like she was looking at Joe Jonas.

  • tia.

    her performance was AMAZING! u culd see it was hard for her and thats probz cuz of the whole joe thing, even the song wasnt written directly for him. but omf it was amazing. she sounded great. and when she won i almost cried! i LVE taylor swift. she comes across more as a friend as opposed to a celebrity. she is so relatable. so i was SOOOOOOO happy when she won!

  • ana

    I love her so much :D

  • Peaches

    Okay, since no one else has said anything I’m going to assume I am wrong. I thought it looked like she was lipsynching. Comments?

  • claudiaaaa


  • riselle

    no she did not lipsync, she was emphasizing her words… and then sometimes you can hear her running out of breathe…she even added two words to the song that wasn’t in the album…you can really tell she gave everything to the song…it was intense especially the glares and the pointing towards joe.

  • riselle

    not two words…i mean two sentences….

  • B

    I thought her performance was boring.

  • Rachel

    the recorded feed was not in synch with Taylors lips and it happened on a few other preformers too.

  • dianel

    I thought Taylor was amazing in looks and performents

  • Lauren-loves-panic-at-thedisco

    Taylor looks so pretty. I love her dress.Im so glad she won that award, she deserved it;)

  • niggah do the bird walk

    i think she looks great and all
    but what’s up with her face
    she looks asian with her eyes like that

  • allie

    why cant a girl be thin without people telling her to gain weight.

    shes fine, you can tell shes naturally thin.

    her performance was so touching. i wish she would have done forever and always. i feel like she wouldve gotten so into it, instead of being sad like she was during white horse :(

    T SWIFTTT! ahhh ilove you ! seriously dont cry girl. these boys arent worth our tears.

  • abigail

    I love every song she sings!!!!!!!!!!! she is the awsomest singer in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Staci

    She was not lip-singing. My husband did sound for the AMAs this year and Taylor was one of only a few performers that did not lip-sing. You would be surprised if you knew who actually did.

  • janie

    There is nothing wrong with Taylor’s hair. As a girl with naturally curly hair it is finally great to see a celebrity embrace her naturally curly hair and work it anywhere either on the red carpet or her downtime. She does not try to conform to the straight hair everybody else has.
