  • sarah

    Ugh, I try so hard to make it as a singer and in order to do that you have to have talent and be on pitch. Yes, she’s talented, but she’s always off pitch! Its frustrating for someone like me who could sing the pants off her. Honestly she was awful tonight and her voice cracked. I do however, give her credit for singing in the cold weather, but however she sounds bad on numerous occasions. Hopefully my time will come! :) Happy New Year! I’m not hating im just frustrated how someone like her is so famous when she is not even vocally trained (eye roll)


    She actually sounds good when she’s acoustic or is singing one of her slower songs. She doesn’t sound good when it’s so high – pitched. Taylor, if you’re having performances like this, please stick with your slower songs. This is coming from an actual fan.

  • tamjia

    OMG she can’t sing!!!!

    that performance was HORRIBLE!!!

  • Natalie

    YAY!!! Love you Taylor!!! Awesome performance!

  • rikki

    her voice is so flat. blah. you could easily tell which parts she was actually singing and which parts was the “help” she got from the backup vocalists.

  • NE1

    Great vocals, she sang without a track and her voice was solid throughout.

  • Tia

    I miss the old Taylr Swift thatg played guitar, wore sparkly dresses, had curly hair and didnt seem t overthink her performances. She has gotten really obnoxious and annoying in a really short time.

  • Princess

    Taylor Swift CAN sing !!!!!!!!!
    Why are saying that she sounds off key or flat or awful when in fact it’s her song and you don’t have the right to say that..Go and get a Life you stupid faggots!!!

  • Ceara

    No talent, rat looking, skank. Sorry, not sorry.

  • elle

    LOL if these are “great vocals” i reckon the world SHOULD have ended 9 days ago.

  • elle

    @Tia: i agree. she did used to be likable, but fame seems to have gone to her head.

  • Emma

    did she kiss Harry or didn’t she?


    She looks pretty but doesn’t sound good. At all.

  • Portgas d Ace

    @Emma: nobody wants to kiss her even they are gay, straight or whatever .. lol..

  • Kim

    “There are 13′s everywhere.”

    What is she 13? Get over this stupid “lucky” number shit.

    P.S. everyone there looks so bored watching her perform.

  • http://yahoo.comcom Paige

    I watched some of this with my family. This girl can not sing. She made my ears bleed and she sells millions of records. Teenage girls are tone deaf. My mom asked if she was tone deaf and my uncle turned the channel. She had a nerve to get done on her knees like she was singing her heart out. P.S. please do not wear leather black pants if you are built like a 17 year old boy.

    Horrible, horrible, horrible performance! Americans are really good at making mediocre performers like Taylor Swift, famous. (Again, horrible! Crap!) . She is so self-centered enough to make New Year all about her. (saying there is so much number 13, which is her lucky number… hello Taylor, 2013 is all about everybody celebrating the new year and not about you and your stupid lucky number 13!).

  • FM001


    I totally agree.

  • Dave Franco

    Her “shocked face” makes a triumph return! LOL.

  • Sarah

    OMG she is a terrible singer! Why is she so famous? The only time she sounds okay is when she is totally auto-tuned. I know many, many people, including myself, who could sing her off a stage. This is ridiculous to call this talent!

  • Anna

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who found her bad! It was so horrible! My eardrums

  • jhb

    she performs as if she’s a 10year old singing in her bedroom with a hair brush. awful.

  • http://Liv_graham_ Olivia

    she was horrible, most people think that this was just a bad performance, but that’s because they’ve never actually seen her live, I saw her in 2010, and she was still terrible.

    And you can’t wear tight pants when you have no butt,

  • gabrielle

    Even though I am a Swifty, that was a TERRIBLE performance! While I know that these songs on her album have ridiculously high notes that I knew she would not be able to sing live, she should’ve chosen a simpler song. I miss her old (country) songs, with her curly hair, sparkly dresses and cowboy boots!
    I wish she wouldn’t make such an embarrassment of herself- it makes me embarrassed to say that I am a fan! Especially when I know how good she is if she just stuck to what she does best, the reason why she gained her fan base.
    I hope she does better next time!

  • JD

    @Princess: No need to be rude. Her first song was decent but you had to admit, she was having some vocal issues in the next song. Im a fan and I can admit that.

  • guest4114

    ok i don´t like her, but usually she is a good live performer
    but that really sucked

  • KellyLovee

    Lol @ that rockstar outfit ;DDD

  • Cubbie

    I didn’t know so many recording experts come to this site. When you sell 13 million records you can dis whoever you want. Especially you SARAH

  • Cubbie

    @sarah: Sell 13 million records and then dis whoever you want

  • Christina

    -.- It. Was. Just. Awful.
    I was never a Taylor Swift fan because i’m not into her songs, but i was sure she was one of those people left who could ACTUALLY sing…but after seeing her live god. I was dead wrong. She can not sing.

  • DemiTasse

    She is garbage. The reason she “sells” so many records is because she is advertised to death. I have said it a million times but it is worth repeating, Taylor is CONSTANTLY in your face. Unavoidable. 24/7/365. She spends a lot of money on marketing. A lot. I couldn’t watch her last night. It was too awful.Garbage.

  • Ashley

    boring and awful as usual
    go away fameho

  • Solstice

    I don’t know what you haters are complaining about, but she gave a grand performance and sang and danced real well. Taylor Swift you go girl!!!

  • Solstice

    @Olivia: YOu must be a fat bitch!

  • Solstice

    @MEMME: You’re no fan, especially all you whiners and complainers on here! Get a freakin life it’s just entertainment you don’t have to be serious! Try singing in sub-freezing weather you idiots! Besides the audience all loved her and sang and danced to her wonderful singing!

  • Solstice

    @Ashley: If you don’t like it then leave! Nobody forced you to watch this wonderful performance! I pity your empty worthless life!

  • Testo

    Just get a life tard
