No offense, but Taylor Swift will never, ever, ever be known for being a great live performer. So instead of breaking it down and focusing on the vocals, this time she opted for a visually stunning performance. Loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, the spectacle featured the heartbreak queen adorned in a white top hat dancing around an evil queen, rabbits, and miming dancers. Extra kudos to Swift for looking her rocky romantic past in the face by placing a fictional ex-boyfriend on a spinning wheel and changing the lyrics of her hit song to acknowledge that she was too busy to care about her relationship status because she was opening the Grammys. Take that, Harry Styles, Conor Kennedy, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, and (pre-emptively) Michael J. Fox's son Sam!
