Taylor looked and sounded amazing when she performed her new song ‘Shake It Off’ for the first time ever at the VMAs on Aug. 24. But behind all the glitz and glam, her isolated vocals reveal just how hard she works to make her performance the best. Listen for yourself right here!
Singing and dancing at the same time isn’t a cakewalk. We love Taylor Swift, 24, so much and we are in awe of how she even manages to hit any notes at all during recording of her isolated vocals at the MTV VMAs on Aug. 24. It’s also definitive proof that, unlike other performers in the game, she wasn’t lip-syncing!
Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ At VMAs: Her Isolated Vocals At Performance
“Shake It Off” was an instant hit, and of course sounds a lot better in the studio than it does on the stage! You try running around and hitting all the right notes while shaking your entire body like a bottle of salad dressing!
A new stripped-down recording of Taylor’s VMAs vocals will give some of the “haters” who say she can’t sing live some ammunition. Ok, we admit that it’s not on point the whole time but Tay is super-talented and certainly proved it yet again during her “Shake It Off” performance.
We think Taylor deserves a break — after all, her performance was really fun and entertaining! We bet you a tasseled silver outfit that other female singers wish that they had the chops to sing live and do an entire dance number like our girl Swifty.
And just because she may not sound absolutely perfect live doesn’t mean that she’s not almost perfect in our eyes. Listen to her isolated vocals and let us know what YOU think.

And Taylor will have plenty more time to warm up before she kicks off her tour next year.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Tay is “putting together tour plans and dates that will mostly materialize next year, early next year to support the album,” according to our exclusive source. “She is looking to do a complete world tour.”
So HollywoodLifers, what do YOU think of Taylor’s isolated VMAs vocals? Are you dying to see her perform live? Let us know!
