    Taylor was Awesome!!
    I was speechless and crying wen I was watching it.
    She looked amazing and She totally deserved the AMA awards.

    And if you dont like Taylor Swift your crazy cause she is awesome

    She was amazing her performance was so emotional she looked like she was about to cry. I think it’s funny that all the taylor-haters love the jobros. Honestly, I like the jobros okay but you honestly can’t deny they sounded bad tonight. they should stick to nick as the main singer…

    —————————–

    agreed. jbros were quite bad… on the amas..
    taylor was so honest with her music. i love that.

    i was so relieved.

  • Lila

    i thought she was going to start crying too. she looked absolutely gorgeous tonight. and she sang so well. Omg, jimmy kimmel was like.. “taylor swift and joe jonas broke up in 27 seconds and they’re here!” love taylor, hate jb

  • lesha

    i know. the whole time i was like ‘be strong tay, your doing great.’ loved the performance though, she definitely felt emotion in that one.

    I liked how emotional she got when she said ” I’m gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well” she seemed really angry and sad at the same time.

    I loved how she almost cried in her preformance it just shows that you can break someones heart in 27 secs.

    we ALL know this song isnt about joe.
    thats not the point.
    the point is she looked sad and angry and she NEVER looks that sad while performing, and just happens to be singing about a sad breakup and has broken up with joe recently and looked at him a few times with a pissed look on her face.
    thats the point.
    but she did sound flawless and looked gorgeous.

    Uhh she wasn’t lip syncing..you can tell when the first “i’m not a princess” her voice choked for a sec. She sounded flawless….get over it, she is good, stop making up lame excuses. GOOD JOB TAY!!!

    You guys are all wack. She wasn’t ‘glaring’ or anything with Joe. Stop making it into something. She can’t see out from the stage with the lighting.

    It was simply an emotional song and she was into it. Great performance and it was good she was into it because otherwise you wouldn’t have connected as you did.

  • desirae

    she did AMAZZZZZING!!!!
    that was my favorite song and she absolutely KILLED it.
    i’m so glad she won. totally deserved it.
    huge people really can come from pennsylvania :D

  • desireee.

    mileys performance was really good too.
    :) it was so cute, when she was blowing out her candles with taylor.

    he was looking in the same direction

    AMAZING PERFORMANCE !!
    FAVORITE SONG!!

  • lesha

    Taylor Swift You Did amazing I love that song I was so happy when she sang it and I voted for Taylor and Jonas a million times so when She won I screamed it was fuuny my sister came running in like whats wrong and same with JB they are all equally amazing. Go Team Jonas/Taylor

  • Lena

    this how i see it.. i know she owes it to her fans to tell them everything.. but she should’ve realized how the media would take this, how their fans would.

    I know she was hurt, i know what she was feeling and i dont think she is immuture, only unthoughful.

    Matter, i dont care what she says, but alot of you guys seem to care and now instead of seeing them as perfect, you’re seeing them as jerks.. i can see that because most of the comments like kevin. Its what us human beings do, when a picture is a little ripped at the corner, the whole picture is ugly.

    what i am trying to say. Taylor should’ve been more thoughtful (some of you are gonna say, well Joe wasnt thoughtful. But if Joe was unthoughtful why should she lower herself to his level and be unthoughtful as well), She should’ve thought what “telling out on your ex boyfriend” would do to a celebrity boyfriend. It will never work well, because the media will make sure of it.

    She didnt just hurt Joe, she hurt his brothers and some of us fans.

    she wasnt immuture but she was unthoughtful.
    great girl, great boy, big misunderstanding. exactly what happen in my family everyday so i would know.
    loved both proformances, from her and JB

    OMG SHE’S TRYING SO HARD TO NOT BREAK INTO TEARS =[ I ALMOST CRIED.. JOE DOESN’T DESERVE HER.. I WOULD’VE LOVE TO HAVE SEEN HIS FACE XD

    I honestly thought her album was gonna be crap.
    But I listened to a couple of songs, and IT’S AMAZING!
    She’s beautiful too.
    I bet Joe was like ‘D: -crycrycry
    XD

    i LOVE the silver dress.
    and the set up of the stage was cute.
    she had an amazing performance.

    I started to cry near the ending.
    She’s amazing.

  • xxLOVE

    just throwing this out here..
    but she performed white horse.
    and joe performed tonight.

    anyone see a faceoff here??

    she wasnt lip syncing did u not realize how in someparts she sounded mad

  • http://myspace.com/kaylaanicolee kayla.[bitchassmotherfucker]

    she almost cried.
    jesus and then joe called her out during his performance.
    screw life, im going to bed.

  • lesha

    she wasn’t lipsincing cause she put emphasis on certain things that sound nothing like the original track.

  • Elizabeth

    Okay, I can understand being upset about a break up, but shes just being a bitter exgirlfriend. I’m sure it was difficult for Joe to break up with her, bit he did, and she needs to stop being like that. I love her music, but she needs to call down before i buy her CD. I’m glad the jBs sang “tonight”. It was perfect for the moment.

  • Kati

    does everyone not realize she was lip singing??

    No, she wasn’t idiot. She sang it a lil different than she does on the album so maybe you should stfu.

  • Anonymous

    but she was like 3 words ahead of the track

  • anonymous

    I was thinking the same thing – another sparkly mini dress!

    So sick of her!

  • Alma

    i was expectingg wayy more from her!
    like some performancee that would make my
    jaw drop!
    but this was okayy :]

  • wowzers(team swift/cyrus)

    i feel bad she looks so depressed these days

  • Anonymous

    Yeah, JB were sitting front row on that side of the stage (I was there) and when JB were performing, they were on Taylors side. They were seriously as far apart as they could place them.

  • Alexandra

    awh she was practically in tears!!!!!!!!!!
    poor Tay but she did amazin!

  • sidney

    just throwing this out here..
    but she performed white horse.
    and joe performed tonight.

    anyone see a faceoff here??
    ——–
    haha, JB performed Tonight cuz its there next single but that could be another reason lol

  • lesha

    where in this video did she seem bitter. sigh. goodness. did you ever think maybe she loved him, or at least really cared about him; letting go isn’t so easy. nothing about this video was bitterness, it was simply a brokenheart. but she took her emotion and had a fantastic performance. i see a strong girl id anything.

  • wowzers(team swift/cyrus)

    she definately wasnt lip synching stop being so jealous i mean its totally obvious shes not lyp synching ive hear the other version on her cd and she sounds so diffrent but anyways her voice is beautiful and it was not lyp synched definately not i mean are you deaf?

  • http://ssd akl

    Did anyone notice that she changed the lyrics to match what happened between her and JOe?
    It was the second verse, after the first chorus

  • katieee!

    taylor’s gorgeouss.
    her performance was AMAZINGG.

  • http://www.myspace.com/chrissysavers Shania

    LMFAO
    She totally kicked Joe’s ass.

  • lesha

    hmm that may just be your tv. this is live so there might have been a delay, but she definitely did not lipsync. you can tell the times she put emphasis on certain things.

  • http://toofeel.blogspot.com phyLLz

    i love her…;D
    she’s so pretty.
    and white horse is awesome!

  • lala

    wow she did amazing.

  • Anonymous

    how was taylor unthoughtful?
    freedom of speech. she can say whatever she wants to.
    joe wanted to keep their relationship private, he broke her heart, she can do whatever she wants, he can’t force her to do anything. (which by the way, i think it’s HILARIOUS that selena gomez got highlights hahahah, he made miley get highlights =P) but anyways….
    taylor is beautiful, inside and out.
    beautiful performance..she will go far and stay around for a long time, unlike the jonas brothers.

  • jenna

    whichever one of you retards said she was lip singing, she was NOT.

    you did great Taylor, another amazing performance!

  • lesha

    hmm well maybe you shouldn’t care so much about the clothing she wears, then it wouldn’t bother you so much. just a suggestion.

    i mean, i love her but it did look like she was. maybe it was just my TV

  • http://www.myspace.com/xonicolemarie niki

    i loved her performance… i was kind of hoping for ‘You’re Not Sorry’ but this was great. And to those who thought it was boring because she was just sitting there. To me it made it more heart felt, she was really into it, you can tell she was hurting. Don’t worry Taylor one day you will find someone to treat you well.

    <3<3<3

    Taylor was pretty good.(: I’m proud of herrr. You go girl!!!

  • fivi

    she did really good she did look like she was trying to hold back tears.it must has been hard for her to sing this song with joe their i felt sorry for her but am glad she won i voted for her.
    it seems like girls do better after leaving jb a coincidence or what.

  • Kristennnnn

    Awh. It’s a sin that she is almost crying x3.
    Am I the only one who thinks that when she says ‘believed it you’ she looks to kinda where JB is sitting?
    And than when she says ‘You are you white horse’ when she is standing, she pointed to there again?
    Awh, i feel bad for her. She looks amazing.
    And loved JB performace (:

  • anonymous

    How can you ignore her clothes? Her dress choices are blinding!

  • paige

    She was amazing her performance was so emotional she looked like she was about to cry. I think it’s funny that all the taylor-haters love the jobros. Honestly, I like the jobros okay but you honestly can’t deny they sounded bad tonight. they should stick to nick as the main singer…
