One of her best live performances. Fantastic.

# 2

she looks beautiful but her singing is so overrated. anyone can learn to sing like that.

# 3

She is not a Country singer! She is pop folks

# 5

Overrated. Mediocre. Immature. Arrogant.

# 6

The only thing that bothers me is that she is still categorized as country when she has maybe one or two country songs.

Off-key and mediocre as usual. There’s only so much hair-waving and hand-posing that you can do on a stage in a nice dress to compensate for the fact that your talents are barely suited to singing karaoke in a neighborhood bar. At least she picked a song that required no range to make it less painful and obvious.

She looks way better here then when she did on the red carpet. Love this song so much and she did a good job.

# 9

there’s something about her that i find annoying, she seems like a whiny b*tch… but she is pretty and has really good taste in fashion.

Taylor is sexy in red. Fine performance. I already have the cd.

Why does she now try to dress and act sexy? It doesn’t work for her.

My god she cannot sing whatsoever! Wow! Noticed all the flashing lights, dancers, and outfit as well. Her people know she can’t sing, she knows it, (although by now she probably thinks she’s an amazing singer) hence all the extra effects for her performance. No one else who performed needed all this crap to back them up.

@liz: why aren’t you a doing it then?

Freakin awesome

@….: That’s what they said about Elvis Presley…

I couldn’t understand a word she was singing. The hand movements etc. were silly.

@joe: Not everyone has the desperate need to be center of attention like Taylor does….

@joe: liz is actually very right about that. I’m a vocal coach and a few of my girls constantly sing Taylor Swift songs, and they can sound just like her. It isn’t hard! I actually cringe when one of my students starts singing like her because it doesn’t warrant correct or even good singing ability!

Thought this was a great performance!! To everyone saying that Taylor is not a good singer, I agree that there are far better singers with more range and power. However, the reason why Taylor is so popular and winning grammy after grammy is not because of her voice (though it has been growing stronger with every performance).

She’s famous because she writes her own songs that so many people identify with on a very personal level and she is an amazing entertainer who knows how to connect with her audience.

Sad that so many people feel the need to “hate” on someone they don’t even know. You don’t have to like Taylor, but let’s go back to what we learned in Kindergarten: If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.

@kae:
she’s both!!!!!!

Wow! This is awesome, better live than in the studio. Please make a live album Tayor!
