You go, girl! Taylor’s awesome AMA performance on Nov. 18 wowed the audience as she belted out a hit song that is allegedly about her ex John Mayer. Did YOU like her performance?
Taylor Swift, the queen of heartache, stunned the audience at the American Music Awards with her powerful performance of “I Knew You Were Trouble” — a song that is allegedly about her former flame John Mayer. Taylor’s latest album Red is full of thinly veiled digs at the horrible guys who have done her wrong, and this song is no exception! Read on for all the details about her edgy AMA performance.
In a dig as transparent as saran wrap, Taylor, 22, sang the inspiring anthem, allegedly about being jilted and humiliated by notorious ladies’ man John, at the 40th AMAs. The lyrics go: “A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be… And now I see, now I see, now I see… He was long gone when he met me… And I realize the joke is on me.”
Wearing a beautiful long white Catherine Deane gown, Taylor descended an elegant staircase as she began her performance. Dancers surrounded her in a masquerade ball theme, and in the middle of her brilliant performance, they pulled off her dress to reveal a black and red sexy corset outfit. Taylor then rocked out with flashing lights and she sat in a gold throne as she belted out the final note.
It was easily one of the – if not the – best performances of the night!
Earlier that evening on the red carpet, Taylor told Lance Bass and Eden Sher that “I Knew You Were Trouble” is her “favorite song on the record.” She also admitted that she was “nervous” about performing the song at the show. Is it because she was afraid that John would be watching?
Taylor is currently rumored to be dating Harry Styles from One Direction, while John is dating Katy Perry. We hope Katy wasn’t watching Taylor’s amazing performance!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did you think Taylor’s performance was awesome?
