Taylor Swift Closes The 2012 MTV VMAs!

The Country Cutie Performs Her New Single…

She told ‘MTV First’ last week that performing at the '2012 MTV Video Music Awards' is “unlike anything else,” so we couldn’t wait to see what Taylor Swift had in store for us this year!

Taking to the stage in a red and white striped top, teeny black shorts and red loafers, the country cutie belted out her brand new single ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.’

Kicking off the performance singing into a mic in a make-shift recording studio, the set soon opened up to reveal a troupe of brightly-dressed dancers, who at one point even picked Taylor up and spun her around in the air!

And it seems fellow celebs had nothing but praise for the 22-year-old’s performance!

“Taylor Swift is giving me EVERYTHING w/this performance right now! Barbz, how f'ing cute is she???????” tweeted ‘Best Female Video’ winner Nicki Minaj.

“What a lovely night, we found love 4 the win! Was all sorts of awesome watching this at home like i did when i was a kid. SWIFTY IS SO CUTE” pop superstar Lady Gaga wrote on the social networking site.

Earlier this month Taylor opened up to ‘MTV First’ host Sway Calloway about performing at the MTV awards show.

“There’s really nothing like the VMAs” she said.

“It’s unlike anything else, so it’s really an honour to get to perform again.”

The '2012 MTV Video Music Awards' are on MTV right now and will be repeated throughout the day! Keep up with the latest news on Facebook, Twitter and at
