I Knew You Were Trouble

At the 2021 Grammy’s, Taylor gave us a three-for-one special with these tracks from her folklore and evermore albums. With beautiful transitions between the ethereal songs, this performance was definitely a pick-me-up during the pandemic.

I Did Something Bad

Taylor’s performance of her reputation hit at the AMAs in 2018, was an incredible comeback. Taking a break from her stadium tour to perform, she brought the whole set with her, including incredible pyrotechnics and phenomenal backup dancers. This is definitely a performance to stream if you’re in your empowered era.

Should’ve Said No

This performance at the ACM Awards was so amazing, it became the official music video for “Should’ve Said No” on Taylor’s YouTube page. With an iconic outfit change and rain on stage, this performance from 2008 will definitely give some major nostalgia to Swifties who were there from day one.

Long Live / New Year’s Day

A fan favorite, “Long Live” is a song Taylor almost always plays on tour because she wrote it for her band and her fandom. During her reputation tour, she dedicated the song to her fans. The song blends beautifully with “New Year’s Day,” which fans hand-picked by Taylor herself got to hear in a secret session at her Rhode Island home. If you want more Taylor, definitely stream the entire tour on Netflix.

All Too Well

This song from Taylor’s Red album is one of her most popular, and her performance of it at the Grammy Awards in 2014 is one of her most raw. In a beautiful ballgown, Taylor takes the power ballad by storm with stunning vocals and an underrated piano performance. The pure emotion in this performance is why it’s a favorite among Swifties.

Honorable mentions include her satirical “Blank Space” performance, her amazing rock version of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and her entire NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert, where she performed “The Man,” “Lover,” “Death By A Thousand Cuts,” and “All Too Well.” With all these incredible performances of hers, you can definitely have your very own Taylor Swift concert at home!
