Taylor Swift To Open Grammy Awards

February 9, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Perez Hilton reports that Taylor Swift is set to perform the opening song at the Grammy Awards, and it may be her song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”.

While speaking to Ryan Seacrest, Swift said: “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. 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.

The song which is nominated for Record of the Year is “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” from her album Red.
