Not only is Taylor Swift performing at the 2013 Grammys on February 10th, she’s also opening the show! Taylor spoke with Ryan Seacrest about what fans can expect from the night:
Oh my god, it’s Grammy week, it’s so hectic. I have a lot to plan for with the opening performance and I’m just really hoping all the pieces come together this week. Because this is when it really gets really crazy, but it’s all very exciting too. You know what’s interesting about these performances, like we presented this performance to the Grammy committee and we just said, ‘This is what we’d like to do,’ and they said ‘OK, cool, you have a performance slot.’ And then like a week ago they call us and they’re like ‘Oh, by the way you’re opening the show.’ So it’s not like they approach you and say listen ‘Let’s do a big opening performance thing,’ it just kind of surprised me that I was gonna go first. But I’m really, really excited about it.
Taylor’s performance is reportedly something she’s never tried before, telling Ryan that fans will see a whole new Taylor Swift!
Taylor also revealed that she will be performing her song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Taylor’s songs “Safe & Sound” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” are up for awards, and Taylor spilled:
I think you should perform the song that’s nominated. Like, if you got a song nominated for Record of the Year, you might as well perform that. It’s a big hint.
We can’t wait to see Taylor’s performance!
