Wearing a red plaid crop top pant suit, Blank Space singer Taylor Swift stole the show at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, which happened to be her birthday. Deemed by Rolling Stone as the “biggest pop concert of the year,” at the IHeartRadio Jingle Ball, Swift followed musical performances by 15 artists: Iggy Azalea, Maroon 5, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith, Pharrell Williams (Blurred Lines), OneRepublic, Meghan Trainor. 5 Seconds of Summer, Charli XCX (Boom Clap), Jessie J (Burning Up), Shawn Mendes (Life of the Party), Rita Ora, and Nick Jonas (Jealous).
If you weren’t one of the screaming thousands at the show, no worries; The CW is broadcasting the show Thursday, December 18 at 8pm. Swifties won’t want to miss the performance. As Rolling Stone described it: “Tay was joined by a horn section for surprisingly roughed-up versions of “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “Shake It Off,” which was (maybe not surprisingly) a lot friskier live.”
