X Factor 2012: Taylor Swift wows with ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ (VIDEO)
Taylor Swift made her big X Factor debut this evening.
The American songstress has never performed on the UK version of the show before now but this evening took to the stage to showcase her single ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’
The song served as the first single from Swift’s fourth studio album Red, which is set for release on October 22, 2012. The lyrics depict Swift’s frustration at an ex-lover who wants to re-kindle their relationship.
The song has already been a huge hit since it’s release, topping the iTunes chart all over the world and becoming the fastest-selling digital single and biggest digital sales week ever for a song by a woman in history. It sold 623,000 copies, overtaking Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” and Kesha’s “Tik Tok”. Not bad for a 22 year old eh?
Before the second elimination of the ITV series Taylor took to the stage this evening, dressed in a sparkly long sleeved top and some sexy black hot pants.
We like how she hasn’t sold out her girl next door image. By this point, Britney and Christina were in PVC catsuits.
We LOVE Swift and tonight, she definitely was smooth and polished and looked amazing. The only negative point for us was that her backing music was SO loud. We could barely hear her sing at all in some verses, which was probably intentional on the part of producers, because she was dancing so much, but still, we love her voice and would have liked to hear it a little more.
