Taylor Swift’s Busy Week: Ellen, The ARIA Awards, Fifi & Jules and TODAY Performances

by (@zaragolden)

All fall Taylor Swift has worked hard — like, her face on pizza boxes and every magazine and in your pharmacy and on your television every day hard — to promote Red‘s release, and even though she has already moved more albums than everybody not named Adele this year, she’s still keeping on working hard. This week alone she made stops at the 2012 ARIA Awards, on Fifi & Jules and TODAY in Australia, and then back stateside today on Ellen. Whew! We’re exhausted just thinking about Taylor’s schedule, but we’re definitely not tired of watching her perform. In these weeks since Red‘s release she’s been really good at mixing up her song choice, alternating between “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “Begin Again,” “Red,” “State of Grace” and “I Knew You Were Trouble,” new to the mix after last week’s American Music Awards.

All that in short: Taylor stays being all over our televisions and we stay being interested. Here’s a quick rundown of this week in Taylor Swift televised performances.

Taylor has been “a million hour flight” in Australia away all week, where she performed spunky renditions of “Trouble” and “Red” on TODAY:

And then “Trouble” again, but acoustic this time, which made fore a nice change up, on Fifi & Jules:

She capped the trip off with “Trouble” on last time, this time with a dance troupe and schoolyard stage set and all the works at the Australian Record Industry Association Awards:

To cap off the week, here’s Taylor playing “Begin Again” on Ellen. She’s midair somewhere (and hopefully napping) but the pre-taped performance is plenty charming nonetheless:
