Taylor Swift's 2022 VMAs Highlights: Album Announcement, 'Super Bass' Rap, and More
Taylor Swift did not do a performance she's just going to shake, shake, shake. Even though Taylor Swift did not perform at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, she was still able to outshine every other celebrity there from the time she walked onto the red carpet.
The 32-year-old singer of "Shake It Off" drew a lot of attention as she arrived at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Sunday, August 28, dressed in a glistening silver Oscar de la Renta dress and wearing shoes that reached the clouds. Fans were reminded of Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" music video from 2017, in which she reclines in a bathtub filled with jewels. The look, which she coupled with a sleek updo and her distinctive red lip, completed the ensemble.
Inside the arena, the singer-songwriter continued to steal the show, as she could be seen singing and dancing along to several different performances. Fergie gave her first live appearance in four years when she joined cohost Jack Harlow for a rendition of his smash tune, "First Class." During the performance, Taylor Swift cheered for the 47-year-old former member of the Black-Eyed Peas by jumping up and down in her seat.
The camera also recorded the woman from Pennsylvania dancing to Lizzo alongside Dylan O'Brien, who attended the performance with her. When "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" was announced as the winner of Breakthrough Long Form Video later in the night, Swift made sure that the Teen Wolf alum, who is now 31 years old, also joined her onstage.
Cats stated in her remarks
Before this, I had previously written and produced music videos, but I had never made a short film before. "We poured our whole souls into this attempting to build something that could be worthy of the love that you, the fans, have offered this song," the star of Cats stated in her remarks to the audience after the performance. "
I'd want to express my gratitude for the encouraging sign that what we did was correct." (Swift also took up the award for Best Direction for the short film's 10-minute segment.) When it came to the turn of other celebrities to shine, Swift was just as dedicated as ever to applauding their accomplishments. During Nick Minaj's performance at the Video Vanguard Awards, the singer known as "Red" was overheard rapping along to the song "Super Bass." Fans witnessed Taylor Swift, 39, urging others surrounding her to offer a standing ovation when the rapper stepped onstage to make her victory speech. Swift is a Grammy Award winner.
Garnered the greatest media attention for Swift
Nevertheless, the part of the evening that garnered the greatest media attention for Swift was the very last one, when she was presenting the award for Video of the Year. Swift was overcome with emotion as she took the stage and addressed the audience. She said, "You guys, I'm just so proud of what we made, and I know with every second of this moment that we wouldn't have been able to make this short film if it weren't for you, the fans," as the audience cheered for her.
