Taylor Swift Performs 'Shake It Off' Live for First Time at MTV VMAs 2014 - Watch Now!

Taylor Swift has a total blast on stage while performing her hit for the first time live at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards held at The Forum on Sunday (August 24) in Inglewood, Calif.

During the show, the 24-year-old entertainer found herself atop a gigantic “1989″ sign, where the music cut suddenly and she said some funny lines.

“I don’t care if it’s the VMAs, I’m not jumping off there,” Taylor said, before referencing Nicki Minaj‘s dancer being bitten by a snake. “All kinds of people getting bit by snakes, it’s dangerous!”

Watch Taylor‘s performance below…

She did not look good….she had a flapper look to perform a song inspired by the 80′s. She sounded awful.

# 2

She’s so sexy as a chayote.

# 3

Trying too hard

# 4

Amazing performance. One of the best EVER.

# 5

Looks like the pervious tour outfit Beyonce wore here

# 6

Not good at all. Girl can’t dance, or sing.

# 7

@Sky: the song doesnt even sound 80′s tbh, its not one of her best songs.

# 8

Poor Taylor, she can’t move. she’s so awkward and strange. stop dancing cause it’s just gross.
And taylor, the beginning of your song is a copy of the song footloose from the 80s. try to be more original next time.

# 9

Painful to watch. She tried so hard, but it’s just not Taylor Swift. She’s trying to be something she isn’t.

I get that it must be rough transition musical genres, but at least be consistent. I like her song.
However, this looks like a copycat performance of Roxie from the movie, Chicago. That would’ve been perfectly fine but there’s a big ol’ 1989 sign on stage. The 1920s and 1980s are not interchangeable.
Honestly, I couldn’t get past those conflicting ideas to really know if it was a good performance or not. She looked like she was having fun. I did notice the audience wasn’t very loud though.

oh put it away taylor. this is about as sexy as a pile of woodchips. and most guys know what youre like by now. you aint gettin anyones kettle boiling. and you aint no sultry showgirl either. go have some sex and learn some real moves asap

@mew: dunno what the big emphasis on the 80s is for. she born two weeks before year 1990 lol shes not an eighties kid so no wonder she cant pull it off

She’s not a graceful dancer.

Taylor is a great writer, she writes most of her songs and that counts for originality and she really has a talent for it. If you’ll just listen to the lyrics the words were really put together. And she’s classy and clean and doesn’t change her image just because it would make people notice her. She sticks to who she is and though she tries different things, she doesn’t change. A lot of people are hating on her because she’s just too perfect and they’re just envious of her. They love her so much they hate her because they can’t be like her. Taylor is so perfect people are constantly finding something that makes her imperfect like the guys she dates or her music videos. That’s what those people are good at: pointing out other people’s imperfections and faults because they can never be as successful as the people they hate. Not even in a billion years or even in their next lives. HATERS GONNA HATE HATE HATE! TAYLOR IS STILL MORE BEAUTIFUL, TALENTED, POPULAR, SUCCESSFUL AND RICHER THAN ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D <3 x

@boobs: Still it’s her birth year. How can you be so stupid? Like it isn’t obvious.

Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate.
How do you live with yourselves?

That was the worst performance of the night…The song is so childish and her so called dance moves pathetic(25 in december?? omg).
People who say she is talented, really ? you don’t know what talent is
People who say she is popular and successful; of course thanks to kids and all buzz she is always having around the release of an album (just wait), a dinner in the same restaurant as John Mayer made medias talk more about her; “coincidence”?? Before I would tell yes, but knowing her now it obviously can be possible that she is causing buzz on purpose: She’s more known for the people that she dated than her music ,at least overseas.. And all the money she has won’t go with her after her death!! And sorry to tell that if someone always says “I don’t care about what people say” and keep saying it is not someone who doesn’t care obviously: she is so affected by critics, she can’t take a joke , can’t laugh at herself,can’t accept that for a lot of people she is just a singer for young broken hearted girls; If she really doesn’t care , she doesn’t have to tell it: Ignorance is the better way to show people you don’t care!!


Taylor, the worst? Mind you, I’m not saying she’s any great singer or dancer, but the worst? Did you watch Minaj grinding just before Taylor? Another thing I’ll say in defense of Swiftie, the remark about her not being able to take it with her. This kid’s given a pile of money to charity. Whether it’s for good PR or not, at least someone’s getting the benefit. I can’t believe you took her to task this way.

Best performance of the night. Taylor was sexy AND classy, something the other VMA performers couldn’t pull off. Also the best legs in the business, bar none.

@Mer: inflated ego perhaps? yikes!

if you’ve seen her video you can see that YEAH she cannot dance and makes fun of it!! this girl can laugh of herself just fine.
I actually dance like her :P
I found the bit “i’m not jumping off” very funny.

I’m addicted to the song, and her outfit even if sexy, isn’t vulgar (miley take notes)

Terrible performance. Can’t sing, can’t dance-watch out pop world here she comes!

poor Taylor, so much hate because she isn’t stripping and grabbing her crotch all during a song, or shaking her T&A in someone’s face. her talent comes from her lyrics and writing ability. she isn’t a great singer or dancer but she has a clean image and that is something worthwhile

Not according to all the critics
