    people listen to this? it sounds like a cable car accident..

    Can’t stand her music:(

  • Frick n Frack

    Love this red dress

  • Steph

    She isn’t country anymore. Female Country Artist??! REALLY?

  • rikki

    i like the chorus but that’s it. the verses are kind of annoying. the light show, effects and choreography was cool. to all the people who complain saying she’s too boring, here you go!! she has finally changed it up a bit. but i bet you miserable haters will still complain

  • rikki

    just realized i’m on a JJ commenting rampage. LOL.

  • A

    I wonder what kind of ritual this was

  • NYC

    I thought that was pretty great.
    Great song, staging, fashion.

  • Kat

    The most AMAZING performance I’ve seen. She is incredible, didn’t expect this from her.

  • ana

    sorry but she mustve been using a backing vocal track for this performance. there was no way in hell she sang that, its really obvious, especially after u see how christina aguilera really sings through the mic in her AMA performance.

  • Jamie

    All of her performances are the same. Elaborate sets and a flasy dress. She’s all props and no substance.

  • blah

    @Hit: LOL I agreed!

  • UKgirl

    What an ugly overbite!! She can never seem to close her mouth or keep her eyes open. She can’t sing, can’t dance & can’t act. This is why she lip synchs to an autotuned studio track now. Adele was put on this earth to show us how useless & untalented these American girls are. Even Avril Lavigne is better than Taylor. Avril also has more Facebook fans because she’s always been more mainstream. No matter what Taylor wears, she is still white trash. She will always be a country girl who came from a farm. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

  • Amy



    First of all, Avril Lavigne? Seriously? You lost me here.

    Second, she’s classy, not trashy. Your argument is invalid.

  • rose

    @UKgirl: i think i’ve seen you post this exact comment before. so sad.

  • Hugo


    OMG!! Thx you!!! I think the same thing!! She’s NOT country artist!!! PEOPLE WAKE UP!!!

  • KissThis

    This has to be like the easiest song to sing, yet she goes flat over and over again. Girl cannot sing without the help of autotune.

  • Stacy

    The performance was nice, I love the red outfit
    but yea totally not country at all, I really hope that tag gets off her.
    but all her songs seem to be the same, like either about a crush or a break up :/

  • Jenna

    Is the song about Harry Styles? I heard that it was.

  • kelly

    You are not country. You are a lousy pop singer from Pennsylvania, bum.

  • Little Miss Wicked


  • pickles

    When you see the third rate cr@p she puts out, compared to other people on that stage, people like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera, and about a zillion other people, she has a lot of nerve going out there and “singing.” I also don’t understand why people keep falling for the cheesey gimmick of this stupid guessing game of who she is singing about. By the time you hit age 15, you really should be over that stuff. Really. I go to a lot of concerts but I wouldn’t walk across the street to see her for free.

  • Dave Franco

    Guys, She is the new Shania Twain. She went country then pop, and then started selling sex. Thing with Swiftie is she writes about her ex’s and acts all innocent when she’s not.

    I’d like to know who her fan base is cause she is huge.

  • RYAN


    your probubly fat.

  • Kat

    She never portrays herself as innocent, she was portrayed that way when she started because she was 16 when her career started.She tries to be a good role model for the young people who looks up to her by dressing appropriately and portrays herself in a respectable manner. If you look at her recent lyrics it is showing signs of maturity and growth. Such as sparks fly, shes updated it so it is more grown up. She is 22, its obvious she isn’t the same girl from six years ago and her real fans gets that.Such as in Dear John its pretty obvious she talks about regretting going so far with John Mayer and regrets it. What is she supposed to write and sing about if not for her reality and real life situations? What does people go through when they are 22? People love her for her brutal honesty and the way she is able to so welly make it into a song, her situations are relatable. And her main focus is her career, she doesn’t put any guys before herself and thats probably why her relationships hasnt worked out. But at 22, that is such a mature thing to do. Have priorities and know what is more important, career or love at a young age. She is in her prime right now and should hang out with the cutest of guys. This is her young adulthood where you are supposed to let go make stupid decisions and have fun and its the time where when you’re old you look back on. And for those who says that she doesn’t take responsibility for her actions in her failed relationships OBVIOUSLY wasn’t listening to the lyrics to this song. She says that it was HER FAULT that she got burned by the guy because she knew he was trouble/ a bad boy and she went for it anyways. And her other popular hit Back to December is all about owning up to that failed relationship. If you don’t like her then focus on someone else stop giving lame excuses to bash her when you obviously are ignorant and know nothing about her.

  • Kat

    She is a superstar now, she doesn’t have to stick to country or one genre. With all the different types of music out there, if you were a real artist you would be creative and use whatever inspires you. Not be afraid of sticking in a box just because of what you’re supposed to be or a label.

  • thick skin

    This girl got a lot of nerve to sing up there after Pink ,CA,Gwen ,this girl can’t sing for shit.

  • Cecile

    @Kat: i agree. But she releases them as country music. Look at the billboard country songs chart. We are never getting back together is no.1 on a country chart. It’s ridiculous and thats why country fans like me arent happy. I dare not comment on her love life cos quite frankly im not so bothered too much, but musically, it’s annoying, and disheartening especially when other REAL country singers try so hard but can never win just because this girl and her label release her as “country”.

  • T Swizzle Lover

    Okay, people WAKE UP!! Taylor IS NOT selling sex. If you want to see that, watch Nikki Minaj. But, Taylor? Taylor is for children, too. Kids can listen and look up to her. Nikki, (or any of the other people you guys mentioned) not so much.
    I think this performance was awesome. Totally love the second dress! I WANT IT! Keep it up, Taylor! :D

  • http://@_crazycatrach Rachel

    @KissThis: go and listen to the live acoustic version? then comment on her singing without autotune..

  • http://@_crazycatrach Rachel

    @Kat: PERFECT thing to say, i don’t understand why people feel the need to hate so much – the only people who do don’t understand her look or her lyrics.

  • Dave

    Sorry but c.underwood is a zillion times better!!!

  • Micheal

    Tay Tay is gorgeos in white!
