TAYLOR SWIFT, “22″

Most of tonight’s performances were notable for their over-reliance on laser lights and EDM beats, which is what distinguished Taylor’s performance of “22.” It featured neither of those things, and recalled her triumphant performance of “You Belong With Me” from the 2009 VMAs in its visual inventiveness (her perf started in her dressing room, continued backstage, and climaxed on stage). Tay Tay also displayed newfound confidence in her body, rocking a pair of short shorts that put her enviable stems front-and-center.
