We'll never calm down after witnessing that!
At the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards on Monday night, Taylor Swift made her return to the annual music show with an epic opening act straight out of our wildest dreams. Taking the stage for the first time since the release of her seventh album Lover, the singer performed "Lover" and "You Need to Calm Down" live from New Jersey's Prudential Center.
Drag queens and backup dancers danced with Taylor on a set that mirrored the "You Need to Calm Down" music video. Together, the group danced in their bright and cheerful ensembles, with Taylor strutting her stuff in a gold bustier and sparkling navy blue shorts. She then rounded out the performance in a matching blazer as she sang "Lover" live for the first time.
And the night is just getting started. Swift, who stunned in a Versace blazer and black knee-high heels on the red carpet earlier, leads the pack with 10 nominations, including Video of the Year and Song of the Year. So, needless to say, it's going to be a big one for this superstar.
