Taylor Swift: 'Begin Again' Live Performance at CMAs - WATCH NOW

Taylor Swift sings her heart out during a live performance at the 46th annual 2012 Country Music Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena on Thursday (November 1) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 22-year-old singer performed her song, “Begin Again” off her latest album, “Red”.

During the performance, the stage was set up as a cafe in Paris where Taylor walks out singing and sits solo at a table. Lyrics of her song included “I’ve been spending the last 8 months, thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end. But on a Wednesday in a cafe, I watched it begin again.”

At the end of the performance, Taylor received a standing ovation from the crowd.

    I’m glad that she didn’t do one of those “I hate my ex boyfriend” songs. She’s better when she avoids all that baggage and just sings normal songs.

    step 1: begin again
    step 2: break up again
    step 3: write new song called “never ending cycle”
    girl is 22….she needs to get out and live a little and stop trying to find the one and just let it happen naturally…it will happen

    Love this song and love Taylor so much BUT this is the most boring performance she ever did. Wish she went back on her guitar :( Better luck next time, Swiftie.

    How did this girl not win the entertainer or female artist of the year?? Blake and Miranda….really??? What a mistake. She was super and does so many more tours and entertains so many more people. Taylor is the BEST!!

    Why does everyone talks about her like she’s this sweet and innocent girl??? She’s been in every musician bed and some actors as well. I’m not hating on her but just think about how many guys she’s been with past couple years and she’s still kinda young. I can think of at least 10 guys in past 2 years! She’s kinda wh*re when you think about it.

    @nika:

    In all due respect for Taylor, I wouldn’t be so sure she’s slept with any or all of these guys…lets not assume.

    Aurora Says:

    @LooseLipz: Considering she’s been ‘in love’ with every single guy she’s ever been with I think it’s safe to say she would’ve had no problem getting in bed with them since she thought they’d be together forever and all.

    Sorreee. When I see Carrie Underwood, or Miranda Lamber,t or Kelly Clarkson, and then this canned fake on the same stage I just shake my head. Taylor couldn’t even drink their bath water I remember Carie and Kelly from American Idol and they are the real thing! REAL. No gimmicks, no “marketing the brand”. I wouldn’t go see Taylor if she came to my house and sang on my front porch.LOL!

    emma Says:

    She’s really sweet and I love some of her songs, but she can sound really off when she goes live…!
    She’s given WAY BETTER performances, this one didn’t deserve a standing ovation.
    Love her still :)

    KissThis Says:

    She isn’t even singing. She’s TALKING through the song. There’s nothing melodic about it either. She’s always flat.

    stan Says:

    Not her best performance but she is still miles more talented than Carrie.

    Ceara Says:

    This was surprisingly good. And this is coming from a non Swift fan.

    Wow: completely contradicting ratings from everyone. I would never want to be an actress.

    My lyrics are so fake
    They sound like a mistake
    You may think that I’m totally spoiled
    I strum on my six string all covered in bling-bling
    When I sing out of tune it makes people recoil

    Wastin’ my words again in Cinderellaville
    I write em down without a meaning at all
    Some people say i got Kanye to blame
    But I know it’s not my damn fault

    I don’t have a reason
    For committing this treason
    I tell all my tweenies that I have something new
    I shake my flat booty
    For the fans that I’m looting
    All of these suckers they just don’t have a clue

    Wastin’ my words again in Cinderellaville
    I write em down without a meaning at all
    Some people say I got Kanye to blame
    Now I think It’s defiantly not my fault

    I sing like a sick goat
    Vomiting flat notes
    All of my albums bought by little girls moms
    I’m just a pretender
    A country music offender
    I still cant believe I got away with this con

    Wastin’ my words again in Cinderellaville
    I write em down without a meaning at all
    Some people say I got Kanye to blame
    But I know It’s my own damn fault
    Yes and some people claim that I got Kanye to blame
    And I know It’s my own damn fault
