I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving! NBC aired Taylor Swift’s Speak Now special tonight November 25. The special chronicles Taylor Swift’s hectic Speak Now release week giving us a glimpse into the new songs with performances of most of the new hits from the album: Mine, Sparks Fly, Story Of Us, Enchanted, Long Live, Haunted, Mean, Back To December and Speak Now. Let me know if I forgot any. The performances were mixed with Taylor speaking about her songs, her fans, as well as visits to the Today Show, Scholastic, Madame Tussauds, Ellen DeGeneres and Universal Studios.

What you shouldn’t miss: The Agency running around Universal Studios during Halloween been chased by chainsaw maniacs, Caitlin on guitar with Taylor and a crying Liz singing about being on the bus while being on the bus, Paul Sidoti on banjo for the performance of Mean, Taylor trying to play cello and finally the credits with a blooper by Taylor getting the word “rooftops” wrong a zillion times in a row.

The locations for each performance couldn’t have been more different. A New York City rooftop with an amazing view was the backdrop for many songs,  Central Park for Back To December, the house from Psycho in Universal Studios for Haunted and on top of a bus on Hollywood Avenue for Long Live.

Here are the previews to the show from the NBC website. Expect the show to appear and disappear in YouTube in the next day and week.

Some parts refuse to play for me, hopefully you’ll be lucky. Try closing the browser completely and loading it up again. I really don’t get why other websites try to re-invent their own version of the You Tube video player instead of just using, you know, You Tube! Anyways, I hope you manage to catch it on your local TV sometime. I only have one complaint: TOO SHORT! I am sure NBC had more than enough footage for two hours if not more.

One thought on “I had the time of my life! The Speak Now special rocks Thanksgiving night!

  1. I know! Too short! I absolutely LOOOOOVE Sparks Fly and they showed what? Like three lines of the song? Buu. But it was great nonetheless! I wish we could somehow get the entire performances in that quality, I know some like Haunted are not live but still… and she rocked it in the others, really!
