For her performance, Taylor looked super cool rocking a black, lace jumpsuit.

After her performance, Taylor put a black blazer over her jumpsuit as she returned to the stage to induct Carole, 79, into the Hall of Fame.

“Her songs speak to the true and honest feelings that everyone has felt, is currently feeling, or hopes to feel one day,” Taylor said while honoring Carole. “So it is only right for them to be passed down like precious heirlooms from parents to children, from older siblings to younger, and from lovers to each other. These songs come to you from somewhere else — a loved one, a friend, the radio. And then, suddenly, they are partly yours.”

This is Carole‘s second time being inducted into the Hall of Fame. She was previously inducted back in 1990 as a non-performer along with her former husband and songwriting partner, Gerry Goffin.

In just a few weeks, Taylor will be releasing new music!

FYI: Taylor is wearing a Sarah Regensburger jumpsuit, a Saint Laurent blazer, Louis Vuitton boots, Djula Jewelry and Aaryah Jewelry earrings, and rings by Djula Jewelry, Ame Jewelry, Graziela Gems, and Melinda Maria Jewelry.
