Time to shake off 2014! Taylor Swift brought the massive crowd gathered in Times Square to their feet with performances of ‘Welcome To New York’ and ‘Shake It Off’ for ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.’

Taylor Swift, 25, closed out an exceptional year for her in the biggest way possible. High above the crowds waiting to watch the ball drop in Times Square, Taylor delighted her fans shivering below — and crowded around their TVs worldwide — with lively performances of “Welcome To New York” and “Shake It Off.” Now that’s how you ring in a new year!

Taylor Swift didn’t care that it was freezing outside because she performed half her set in ONLY a crop top and pants! Girl definitely loves a crop top — that’s for sure.

Host Ryan Seacrest even joked: “‘Shake It Off’? More like take it off!”

T-Swizzle’s performances were just what we needed to shake off 2014 and dance our way into 2015!

Taylor Swift: ‘1989’ Album Explodes In 2014

While 2014 might be coming to a close, it surely will be a year that Taylor will never forget! 2014 was the year she adopted her second kitty Detective Olivia Benson, starred in the blockbuster The Giver with Meryl Streep, and was name Billboard magazine’s Woman Of The Year.

Of course, that had a lot to do with the most important reason 2014 matters to Taylor — she released  ‘1989’, her first all-pop album. And what a release it was! Not only did it sell 1.287 million copies in its first week,but her first two singles, ‘Shake It Off’ and ‘Blank Space’, skyrocketed to #1.  That is something to celebrate indeed!

So, Hollywoodlifers — Did Taylor Swift have the best 2014 ever?! How will she top herself in 2015?
