I’m not insane, Taylor Nation.

The Sparkly Dressed performed onThe Voice, which aired tonight, November 25. With some of Taylor’s performances in the coming week being pre-recorded it’s a bit hard to know where she is. Please don’t expect her at the Thanksgiving parade.

She did sing “Blank Space” so beautifully on The Voice, and this time you could hear her voice crisp and clear. She has been using tracks whenever she doesn’t have her full band, but not for her voice. If she’s letting her Starlighters do the chorus she’s adding her own spin on top. And you can hear her above her background singers on this one.

On other news, here’s a behind the scenes look at her Lucky photoshoot. Notice how a simple change of makeup just changed her to the point that she almost looks like a teenager. The Enchantress is a chameleon.

She was nightmare dressed like a daydream, Taylor Nation.

Taylor Swift slayed at the 2014 American Music Awards opening number with a theatrical live performance of “Blank Space” complete with flaming roses, flying boyfriends and just acting beautifully insane. All without missing a beat and while lighting the stage on fire both figuratively and literally.

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who remembers the time she performed “I Knew You Were Trouble” live for the first time, we know that she’ll use cues from this performance to get the look for the live performance at her 1989 World Tour concerts.

The Queen of Sparks was also the recipient of the newly named Dick Clark Award for Excellence from icon Diana Ross. Notice how she was on point. She thanked and acknowledged Diana Ross as a female artist, she thanked and recognized Dick Clark’s invaluable support to music and finally she spoke to her fans. “I love getting to know you,” she told her Taylor Nation. “I love talking to you online and I love getting a glimpse into your life.”

She’s still a free soul, Taylor Nation.

Caitlin Evanson is still flying high on her own skies. You can read her interview with @TT4Taylor‘s Jencita Vargas on WhoSay.com. She’s now embarking on her own projects, and we thought we’d highlight them here so you don’t lose track of your favorite fiery fiddler :)

  • Soundcloud – Caitlin still makes her own music, and you can find it here first.
  • Sessions By Cait – Allows for songwriters to get Miss Evanson to perform, play and produce a track they’ve written. From a musical page into actual music!
  • Cake Pop Music – A songwriting project with TV composer Dominic Messinger. You can actually purchase songs written by Caitlin and Dominic. So far, they’ve sold songs to The Young And The Restless and Hollywood Heights.

You can read the full interview at WhoSay.com.

On other Taylor news, former manager Rick Baker remembers Taylor Swift. Here’s a very revelatory interview into Taylor’s work ethic as Rick describes what makes the Sparkly Dressed different that other artists (hint: she gets to know her audience first) at Pollstar.com.

Taylor Swift will also appear on Robin Roberts’ Thank You, America! special airing on November 27.

Taylor will be at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball in Los Angeles, California on December 5, Capital FM’s Jingle Ball in London, UK on December 7 and z100’s Jingle Ball 2014 in New York City, New York on December 12.

Dick Clark Award for Excellence at the AMAs to be given to Taylor Swift

I know what we’re watching this Sunday night, Taylor Nation.

The good news is that Taylor Swift’s performance of “Blank Space” actually kicks off the 2014 American Music Awards. The other good news is that she’s actually winning an award. Because, let’s be honest, if you invite Taylor Swift over to perform and not give her an award it’s kind of your loss more than it is hers. Now, of course a current nomination would be great but 1989 is not elegible yet. Then again, there’s the Dick Clark Award for Excellence. The award is “given to an artist who achieves a groundbreaking feat or creates a landmark work. It is to be bestowed upon someone whose spirit and excellence capture the visionary passion that Dick Clark himself incorporated into everything he did.”

You can read the original story at the American Music Awards. The ceremony airs on Sunday, November 23 at 8pm Eastern / 7pm Central. Be early, Taylor will open the show.

Update! Taylor Swift will also appear on Robin Roberts’ Thank You, America! special airing on November 27. You can read the story on UPI. Shoutout to @2Amanda13 for the heads up :)

Taylor will be at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball in Los Angeles, California on December 5, Capital FM’s Jingle Ball in London, UK on December 7 and z100’s Jingle Ball 2014 in New York City, New York on December 12.
