Start your speculation engines, Taylor Nation!

Yes, it’s official. The Blonde With The Sparkly 1989 Microphone and seven more GRAMMY nominations will perform at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. The immediate though comes to mind: What will she sing? The next thought that comes to mind after that is: Does this mean her chances of winning have improved?

Don’t worry your pretty little mind. This is an acknowledgement of Taylor’s massive star power to attract audiences. You have Taylor on the show and on stage and you get the fandom watching. She has competition on a massive scale for this one. I’m a bit conflicted because as much as she deserves her nominations, there’s a lot of other people for whom a GRAMMY award would mean the world for the first time.

I still want her to win because as much as everyone deserves a first win, she’s really made this album worthy of an entire year and a second win. That being said, I know Taylor will survive either way but we’re all going to be miffed if this doesn’t go the way of the Sparkly Dressed. So come next Monday, February 15… We’re watching.

As for the song, she could go with “Blank Space” or “Bad Blood” which are nominated. She could do a little of both. She could go with “Out of the Woods” too. However, I would really, really love it if she does “Clean”. It’s a song that would tie up the entire 1989 era with sparkly bow. It’s mature, it has a great lesson of overcoming the odds, and in my opinion is deeper that her other options.

Oh yeah, I have no idea what she will wear. Something that goes good with gold, I guess 😉

Coming up in the Calendar:

  • February 15: It’s the 58th Annual Grammy Awards! Taylor is nominated for Album of the Year for 1989, Record of the Year for “Blank Space”, Song of the Year for “Blank Space”, Best Pop Solo Performance for “Blank Space”, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Bad Blood”, Best Pop Vocal Album for 1989 and Best Music Video for “Bad Blood”.
