Taylor Swift Rocks Her Concert Balcony - Literally

Taylor Swift Rocks Her Concert Balcony - Literally

Taylor Swift hits the stage during her Speak Now world tour on Tuesday (July 19) in Newark, New Jersey.

The 21-year-old singer had a bit of trouble during her encore performance of “Love Story.” Typically, she soars above the entire audience in a standalone “Romeo and Juliet”-style balcony structure. But yesterday, the balcony went up 200 feet in the air, abruptly stopped, and rocked from side to side.

Taylor looked terrified for a split-second, looking up at the production team to see if everything was going to be alright. She never missed a note and finished the concert like a pro even though the balcony never finished its journey. Hopefully the balcony gets fixed before tonight’s show!

FYI: Taylor had the lyrics to Gavin DeGraw‘s song “Belief” written on her left arm during the show.

“Newark!!! What a crazy, off the hook, bouncy, loud, dancy crowd. I love you, Jersey crowds. Night 1 of 4!” Tay wrote on her Twitter account.

Before the concert, Tay met up with‘s Jared Eng backstage (she gives the best hugs). Pictured below!

she is boring as hell @ 07/20/2011 at 10:47 am

She is retatded. Always the same hair, make up, sparkly outfitd, pose, etc.

She always has a classy look. Why change what works for her? I love her style. It’s refreshing to see that she sticks to what “she” likes and not to what the industry or the thousands of self made internet fashion experts like. FYI her Speak Now show is AWESOME!

“She never missed a note and finished the concert like a pro…”

It does help when you don’t have to worry about singing in key.

She’s a pretty gal though….

so ugly and annoying @ 07/20/2011 at 1:08 pm

She looks extra squinty in these.

Speak Now @ 07/20/2011 at 1:38 pm

@so ugly and annoying:

No, people like you are ugly. Go listen to Justin Beiber and stfu. :)

Awesome concert! I can’t wait till September for it. Don’t you guys just love Taylor’s plaid T-Party dress!? Don’t forget to request this look on to see a guide for it. Also we had a recent post (on July 17) so make sure to check it out.

So what are you waitting for logg on to to copy this country-cutie’s fashion sense.

Although she’s way too predictable…I kinda like Taylor’s style

Ps: JJ I love u
but STOP trying too hard to look stylish or fashion forward!!
you’re NOT Rihanna
these shoes r just hideous #fail

I would have freaked out. I am glad Taylor was able to finish the show and everything went ok for her. Love her!!!!

Taylor is amazing @ 07/21/2011 at 1:36 am

@she is boring as hell:

Why are you hating?

She is one of the most amazingest singer songwriters to ever walk this earth!

How does that make her “retatded”. and FYI she does change her hair styles and makeup every now and then, and her sparkly dresses are apart of who she is.
She purposely does that pose because its the pose she always uses. None of these things make her “retatded”.

She is an amazing and beautiful person and you clearly know nothing about her. If you actually took the time to listen to her lyrics and stuff then maybe you would appreciate what an amazing person she is!

Dude, come on, how is she boring as hell??
you clearly know nothing about her so how would you know.
I think that you should think about what your going to say in an hate comment so that it actually makes sence.

I don’t get why haters have to come and give swifties a hard time. And well as you can that comment made me pissed off, you decided to post a hate comment on this site when you dont even know the kind of person she is.


She looks great, as usual.
Lover her in those boots!

I love her to pieces. Awful thought that something could have happened to her.
