We’re just one weekend away from Taylor Swift‘s
world domination official album release on October 27, and the more we get to hear of 1989, the more it becomes clear that this is indeed the huge leap into pop that she promises us.
But Thursday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” we got the chance to see Taylor perform some of these brand-new tracks live. Aside from her VMA performance of “Shake It Off,” we haven’t gotten the chance to watch Taylor sing her new songs live—and boy was it worth the wait. Not content to perform within the constraining bounds of four walls, Tay Tay instead opted to shut down the entirety of Hollywood Boulevard, performing “Out of the Woods” for the first time.
In a shimmery, black bra top and black cigarette pants, Swift sang her songs at a standing mic, leaving any fancy choreography behind and substituting it with bad-ass attitude. Watch the clips below, and tell us what you think of her performance!
