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.
