Too much seriousness, let’s put some clips up, Taylor Nation!
Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who has to send a shoutout to the Ninja Department because they’re complaining about not getting enough shoutouts lately, we swore we had some leftover cake on the fridge. Anyhow, let’s get to some clips – starting with an official clip with Taylor’s win for Album of the Year. I love that it took a moment to hit her that she had won. Legit surprise there. Also, how adorable was Taylor’s handshake with Jack Antonoff? And finally, I did love how she walks over to Kendrick Lamar to give him a hug. And yes, of course the speech which I could write a hundred more editorials about 🙂
Here’s the Eternal Overachiever (I can’t claim this one, Reba came up with it) with her new three GRAMMYs for a photoshoot at the Press Room. Keep in mind, those are not hers, they’re just props for the photos. The real ones are delivered to her after the show. Yes, they take the GRAMMY after you receive it on stage… Still, Taylor wanted to make sure she didn’t have a repeat of 2010 when she dropped one.
And this is actually an Ed Sheeran moment, where he wins Song of the Year. I was going to use the audience cam for Taylor’s reaction, but it’s actually closer on the official clip and then you also see Ed accepting the award. It sucks that Amy Wadge, who co-wrote the song “Thinking Out Loud” didn’t get her time on the microphone. She got cut off as the show immediately cut to the Glenn Frey tribute.
Here’s more. I wanted a longer clip, but here’s a part of the official GRAMMY portrait made by photographer Danny Clinch. And yes, those GRAMMYs are for the portrait only as well. I’ve shared one longer version on Facebook via Taylor Swift Videos if you care to look, including the takes with Joseph Kahn, Selena Gomez and Serayah McNeill.
Oh and one more thing! Taylor won a NME award for International Solo Artist of the Year. You can watch the acceptance speech (pre-recorded before the GRAMMYs) via @TaylorSwiftVid. Just a word of warning here, be aware the design of the NME award is a bit interesting. Don’t play this at work or if you’re easily offended.
Coming up next… A big ball of nothing 😦 Holy crap, what are we going to do with ourselves? Well… I suggest you don’t despair because the chances of the Sparkly Dressed being away for too long are slim. Although, we’re always missing her. Chances are we’ll get to see her again collecting a few more awards before her big break. That’s of course if it doesn’t turn into a songwriting spree for the next album.
