We are watching it begin again, Taylor Nation.

The Grammy Nominations Concert Live took place December 6. So what’s the count? The Queen of Sparks has four Grammy nominations:

  • Album of the Year for RED.
  • Best Country Album for RED.
  • Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Highway Don’t Care” along with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban.
  • Best Country Song for “Begin Again”.

Not a bad night at all. Here’s the Enchantress’ performance of “I Knew You Were Trouble” on the show, recorded from The RED Tour at the Allianz Stadium in Sydney, Australia on December 4:

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on January 26, 2014. The show will be broadcast live on CBS from 8–11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

She appears to be excited about it:

Here at the Swift Agency, just another guy staying awake past his bedtime, we’re also thrilled that Sara Bareilles is nominated for Album of the Year for “The Blessed Unrest” and that both Ed Sheeran and Kacey Musgraves got nominated for Best New Artist.

Did I leave my scarf over there, Taylor Nation?

It looks like the Blonde With The Sparkly Guitar recorded a performance during The RED Tour in Sydney which will be played during the Grammy Nominations Concert Live tonight on CBS. I was hoping for a live performance because… well, the title has the words ‘Concert’ and ‘Live’ on it. The truth is by the Enchantress will be getting ready to play at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia a few hours after the nominations are over. She’s busy enough as it is to start bending time and space.

Word on the street – and by street I mean Twitter – is that it will be a performance of “I Knew You Were Trouble”. Not to be a downer, but it would’ve been great to highlight the fan-favorite “All Too Well”. I guess it’s not considered mainstream enough but we fans know it… all too well.

The show will be broadcast on CBS from 10 to 11pm Eastern Time and Pacific Time (it’s delayed for Pacific Time), and 9 to 10pm Central Time. Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’d rather hibernate all winter than go outside, we expect RED to be nominated for Album of the Year as well as a nomination for the Sparkly Dressed as a performer. Expect her to be nominated in both Country and Pop categories.
