Earlier this year Billboard announced that Prince will perform at this year’s Billboard Music Awards, after receiving the Billboard Icon Award, which is really all I needed to be interested. Really. But, today comes news that the newest pop princess and princes will also grace the stage at this year’s shows.
Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Miguel and Justin Bieber will all perform when the show airs live on May 19 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
Don’t try to contain your excitement. Just let it out.
T. Swizzle debuted the music video for her newest Red single this morning on Good Morning America, because today’s the 13th and that’s her favorite number. The video doesn’t have a strong storyline, like Swift’s previous videos, but she says it was her favorite one to shoot because it actually features her real friends. According to the video, feeling 22 encompasses laying on the beach, dancing wildly (and offbeat) and going to a party wearing cat ears as a headband.
Special year. Continue reading
The Grammys aired just over a week ago, but artists are still seeing the positive effects of music’s biggest night!

Have you bought any new music following the Grammys?!
Dressed in a top hat, Taylor Swift brought her no. 1 single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” to life once more at the Grammys. It wasn’t her best vocally or performance wise and she didn’t perform “I Knew You Were Trouble” like many fans were hoping, but she’s Taylor Swift, so she still wins.
Earlier in the day Swift snagged a Grammy for her “Safe & Sound” collaboration with The Civil Wars in the Song for Visual Media category.
Later in the show, Carrie Underwood took to the stage to perform “Blown Away” and “Two Black Cadillacs.” In my honest opinion, the vocals were a bit nasally, but it was still a pretty good performance.
Underwood snagged 2 awards for “Blown Away” tonight, including Best Country Song.
T. Swizzle has been the butt of many jokes lately thanks to her personal life, but her professional life is still on the up and up.
Swift stopped by Ryan Seacrest recently to talk about everything from Valentines Day to The Grammys. We already knew the country starlet is set to take the stage during the Feb. 10 show, but she revealed that she’s actually the opening performer!
Miguel, Wiz Khalifa, Kelly Clarkson, Frank Ocean, Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys, Ed Sheeran and Elton John, The Lumineers, Carrie Underwood, Rihanna with Bruno Mars and Sting, Taylor Swift, fun., Mumford & Sons, and The Black Keys are also set to hit the stage when the Grammys airs on CBS on Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. EST.
Which Red song do you think Swift will perform?!
This is honestly the first year i’m super excited for the Grammys and today just cemented it!
The Grammys announced this morning that Taylor Swift, Rihanna, fun., Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys will hit the stage when the awards show airs on Feb. 10.
LL Cool J will host once again. Hey, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
Christmas in February.
Sidenote: These artists, and many more, will also be featured on the 2013 Grammy Nominees Album. If you don’t have all of the hits from the past year, it’s definitely something you should purchase on Jan. 22!!!
Just before the New Year, Taylor Swift celebrated the end of 2012 with a performance of her latest singles “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” It wasn’t her best, vocally, but most of the people in Times Square were boozed up anyway so I’m sure they didn’t mind!
If I got to bring in the New Year with Queen Tay Tay I sure wouldn’t complain!
Happy New Year!! Continue reading
In August, Taylor Swift revealed “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” would be the lead single from her forthcoming album Red and answered a few questions about the project via webcast. T. Swizzle also performed three songs from the album, but didn’t release them right away, choosing to hold on to them until now when she could share them with fans as a little holiday treat.
During the small set, Taylor gives the story behind and performs “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “Treacherous” and “22.”

Taylor Swift’s video for “I Knew You Were Trouble” premiered last night on MTV. In it she plays a girl who falls for a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Taylor sports a new look putting her more into a character and moving away from the dorky good girl next door. It’s her poppiest and most mature sounding song yet. Click here to watch the clip!
