    Scary thought, another “live” performance. Surprised that no one has told her yet that she CAN NOT sing?

    She looks like such a brat in that picture. they should at least try to make her look humble…
    her songs are good, but her singing live is really bad. why will they not get her some voice lessons??? you can be taught to be on key at least.

    Taylor was too good for Joe Jonas(as we can see from his immature and cowardly behavior–didn’t have the guts to break up face-to face).

    Now she is free to rule the music world without him to drag her down.

    Newsflash for the delusional Jonas fans : they barely sold 1 million copies of their 2008 album(released since August 2008) while she has sold more than 2.5 million copies of Fearless since Nov 2008 and guess what–the album is still number 1 !(beating out Britney and Beyonce)

    Kelly Says:

    Am I the only person that thinks she is a awful!!!! singer??? She’s passable on her cds and radio but at award shows and on SNL she was really terrible. Totally out of tune for both songs. UGH!

    a (sane) boulder guy Says:

    Yeah, me too! She really sucked on SNL. Maybe it’s nerves for her, although by now she should be able to perform better than that after all the performances (I assume) she’s given. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure she’s a great person, and her newest song sounds great on the radio, but, let’s face it – she sounds BAD live. Studios can obviously work magic if this is how she sounds live versus on an album… I just can’t respect an artist unless they do sound good live. There are too many great artists out there putting in their time playing out and sounding amazing live for her to last long sounding like she does. Come on America – find some real talent and stop supporting this kind of (manufactured?) crap! (Sorry Taylor – prove me wrong.)

    big deal Says:

    big deal, she can write a song, but that’s the only thing she’s talented at. she can carry a tune when she sings, but other than that, there’s nothing more to it. i heard her sing umbrella, and it wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t good either

    Okay, you gotta admit that monologue song a.k.a LA-LA-LA was really adorable, wouldn’t be any better if Taylor swift is not the one who sang that song!
