Taylor Swift: Philadelphia Phenomenon

Taylor Swift: Philadelphia Phenomenon

Taylor Swift places a hand to her heart as she takes a moment to silently thank the crowd at her Thursday night (March 18) concert in Philadelphia at the Wachovia Center.

JJJ reader Charlotte sent in some pics from the concert and wrote to us, “Taylor was amazing! She’s so sweet. She hugged some of the audience members, and was absolutely incredible :] She’s such a talented girl, and I’ll never forget that night!”

Check out all the pics and video below!

    @MileyCyrusbiggestfan: ^Awww look at this Miley Cyrus tween fangirl mad because the whole world loves T-Swift. Taylor already had the best selling album in America BEFORE the Kanye incident. Don’t hate on Taylor because she doesn’t dance on stripper poles and take half-naked pics of herself to get attention. Don’t hate on Taylor for being a better singer and songwriter than Miley could ever dream of. Don’t hate on Taylor for winning every award on the face of this planet. Your girl Miley ain’t ever winning a Grammy, I know that must suck, but don’t hate on Taylor for that. Taylor >>>>>>>>>>> Miley. That is all.

    Miley was was on Hollywood Reports 2009 MIST POWERFUL women in Entertainment list
    Mileys the youngest person in history to have two #1 albums in less than a year.
    Oh and has taylor swift been in any of those?
    no i dont think so!
    BIG WHOOP Taylor won a emmy
    look at miley shes done alot of things

  • http://Justjaredjr.buzznet.com Stephanie

    If you’re nor a fan of Taylor, why bother commenting on this??? N one cares about you’re hate comment either, Hater… I completely understand that Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but no need to be nasty.

  • http://Justjaredjr.buzznet.com Stephanie

    N actually Taylor won a Grammy!!! Not an Emmy duh get it right – n that happens to be the greatest award/honor anyone can get in the music business n did miley get one?? Umm no. I like both miley and Taylor but there’s no need to be nasty about who u hate or who u love. CALM DOWN.

  • http://Justjaredjr.buzznet.com Stephanie

    I n she actually one A FEW Grammys as in more than one. Her albums went platinum 6 times!!!

    Girl just shut up now! You’re embarrassing yourself. It’s mortifying. Em, regardless of Miley’s “achievements” at least Taylor gained everything in life by working hard at her music and securing a record deal on her own terms. Unlike Miley who is just another Disney juggernaut.
    By the way Taylor won a Grammy not, as you said, an emmy. Winning Album of the Year is the highest and most prestigious achievements in the music business so Taylor deserves the praise for that. Also the quality of music is more important than the quantity. Yes Miley sold 14 million albums or whatever but they’re still just cookie-cutter Disney pop as is the general consensus among music critics (who, before you bash, are smarter than you dear). Also, I have far more respect for Taylor not having to dress in a sexy fashion in order to gain publicity. Nor does she have to use conveniently placed poles for “balance” while performing on stage. Please just stop talking dear cause you’re only humiliating yourself especially with that shocking level of English grammar. Perhaps if you focused on your studies as opposed to bashing superior artists you may not find yourself being corrected in this fashion. :)

    She was AMAZING. I was soo excited to see her- it was my first concert and she made it so special. She was amazing live, connected so well with the audience, and was SO grateful; she almost looked overwhelmed at the size of the crowd and the response she was getting. I started to cry during ‘Fifteen.’ Her music just speaks to me and she was brilliant; a night I’ll never forget!

    wow. i have to admit i do prefer Taylor over Miley. I think if i had to have a dinner date with either of them it would be Taylor.
    God! asking if you like Taylor or Miley is like Asking if your Team Edward or Team Jacob :)

  • http://dressliketaylor.net Emily

    @MileyCyrusbiggestfan: I agree with what everyone said, especially Kevin. Maybe you should stop talking, hon, because you’re obviously embarassing yourself. There’s no point to that. And just incase you didn’t know, Taylor herself has set many, many records.

    She recently has been honored with “Most Awarded Album in Country Music History.”
    She was one of People’s “25 Most Intriguing People of 2009.”
    She sold out MSG in A MINUTE.
    She was the youngest to win Entertainer of the Year.
    Love Story is the Most Downloaded Country Song In History.
    She was named Artist of the Year by Billboard Magazine in 2009.
    In January 2010 Nielsen SoundScan lists Swift as the top-selling digital artist in music history with over 24.3 million digital tracks sold.

    I really don’t think I have to go on.

  • http://Justjaredjr.buzznet.com Stephanie

    Awww you’re so luckyy :) I want to go to one of her concerts soo badd!! :/ :)

  • Taya

    amazing <33

  • Sookiiie!!!!!

    Omg i went to this concert!!! She went on a platform and was literally five feet from me!!!! Amazing night and Taylor did an amazing job! She was so appreciative of her fans and she’s such a good role model!!!

  • Bradley Bobst

    Taylor looks beautiful and gorgeous.

  • Swift Freak

    taylor is amazing live, i saw her in London :)
    I am also her biggest fan ;) aha x

    I gues you’re by yourself. I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT TOO. Let me tell you, Taylor broke so many records before. She won a GRAMMY not an EMMY. Have Miley win one before? Nope, she won some small awards and that’s all. Sure Miley has set records but Taylor did SO MANY TIMES too. Miley is nothing but a slut and a fake. She’s 17 and she’s gone through so many inappropriate stuff. The naked pictures, pole dancing, dressing like a slut. Taylor has been in the music world as long as Miley and she has never do those things. Taylor is a hard working girl, she cares about her fans, and she’s a real role model. I’m done talking

    I love Taylor Swift

    It is quite obvious you worship at the alter of Miley Cyrus. I’m going to try to be kind and not say what everyone else has said & they are right – BUT You are a loser when it comes to your comments about Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift is so far above Miley Cyrus in Character AND Talent. Taylor is am awesome songwriter and singer – she is an amazing artist and is loved by all ages – not just teens, but everyone from 9 to 90 loves Taylor because she IS REAL & She loves people & she is kind and generous and compassionate AND all this is added to her amazing talent & she is on the cover of ELLE Magazine & inside & she is gorgeous AND she does ALL these things better than almost anyone AND all with all her clothes one and not once has she dressed like a sl_t pole danced or bashed a whole music group (like Miley has done to country music – which by the way made her daddy very rich). Taylor’s album has been on the Billboard 200 for 70 weeks & has been # 1 for 58 noconsecutive weeks – MORE than any other country album in the History of the Billboard – she has sold more digital downloads – over 24 Million than ANY other artist in history. I could go on and on – but so many have said much of this and more. PEOPLE DON”T buy records out of sympathy & the fearless album has sold somewhere between 6 and 8 million – that is ONE album & she has sold over 10 million albums. The Taylor Swift album has been on the Billboard 200 for something like 170 weeks & has NEVER dropped off the Billboard 200 chart. All Kayne West did was make people hate him more than they did already BECAUSE he has done the sort of thing he did to Taylor before – he is known for his outrageous outbursts – so take your head out of Miley’s backside & smell the fresh air with the real world. Miley is an ingrate & is bashing in every magazine Disney & Hannah & everything that has made her a very wealthy girl – BUT life outside Disney may be quite shocking for Miley – Disney has the bucks to promote their “little darling” – she may find out the real world with the “big kids” might not be so kind.

    Wow, nicely said.

    Anyways, I’d LOVE to go to a Taylor Swift concert. :) She’s coming to my town at the end of May but tickets are sold out obviously, but still. They look amazing and memorable.

  • swiftfan

    why the heck are you guys fighting over who is better, Miley or Taylor they are both great why can’t we just enjoy both of them gosh why do we always have to compare artists they each have their own accomplishments (both are extremely successful), they are the best in young hollywood… and that is that!

  • Listen to mayday parade

    Why would this Charlotte girl send Jared her pics if she didn’t want them
    posted. Loser

  • mary michael

    I love Taylor! I’ve seen her in concert in Greensboro, NC and she was great. I’m going to see her again on May 1st in Raleigh, NC for my birthday! She is so talented and down to earth. You can’t even compare Miley Cyrus to her- she’s not even close to being as good!

  • Carrie

    I love Today was a Fairytale. It is so good of a song. Taylor you are taleted and I love your songs. For example Love Story and You Belong With Me. I like Jump then Fall too. I am a huge fan of you. I watched Valentine’s Day and it was really cutie and you were so funny and I enjoyed the movie. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!

  • blahblah

    I love taylor and all but its not fair for you all to trash on miley. taylor is beautful and has talent but her vocals are no way near mileys. Im not saying miley has an awsom voice. im just saying that if i were to compare them, miley would win but i do love taylor so dont trash on me like you did with the other miley fan.

  • ilovetswift

    Went to the concert in Philly on Friday. March 19th. It was soooo great! :) I mean, I totally understand if people don’t like Taylor, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I don’t really like Miley Cyrus, but I’m not gonna go on a story about her and leave hate messages. Anyway, the show was absolutely amazing, I had a great time with my friends. I LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT :) P.S. Her guitar player Grant is gorgeous :)

  • Thingswillchange


    OMG i laugh everytime…you said it girl the best way it could be said. wow people are just so lame!

    I really don’t understand why people hate Taylor so much?…she shows much love to her fans and is the only celeb that i know that would just walk through a crowd at every concert and take time to hug her fans…i don’t ever recall Miley being this loyal to her fans but i guess.
    It’s not a who is better then who it is have respect for people…

  • MElissa

    @MileyCyrusbiggestfan: Dude, we could say the same about Miley Cyrus. Didn’t she only get famous from her father? Yeah thought so. Taylor Swift grew her talent, she got to where she was today relying on herself. Not connects.

  • http://justjaredjr.buzznet.com/2010/03/20/taylor-swift-philadelphia-phenomenon/comment-page-2/#comments Uncertainty Principle

    First of all, I will just say that I am not a Miley Cyrus fan. However, what is she famous for? Her music is kind of good but the fact is she is a terrible role model.

    I will take this opportunity to thank Taylor for all that she has done for her fans. To the person who has given invaluable advice on relationships as well as other issues to all who would listen, to the person who has formed a friendship with all of her fans that is priceless, and to the writer of many good songs, I say thank you Taylor. Ask me to analyze the components of friendship and I could attempt to do so, but I could also point to Taylor and say that she is the perfect example of what everyone should strive to be in this area of life.

  • Selenaaaa

    i like you kevin, haha.
    its so true, as if anyone would take time out if their day to put up hate comments.
    well whoever you are, hater, you just wish you were taylor swift.
    have fun with hating. peace out mate, PEACE OUT.

  • serena

    awesome…<3 <3 Taylor…

  • Alice

    I love Taylor Alison Swift for my own reasons and nothing will ever change that. I agree with Kevin, and am very happy to see that the intellectual (and English grammar) level of Taylor fans/supporters is clearly superior to that of…well, tween Cyrus fans. Just like the artists, if they were to be compared. And Miss @MileyCyrusbiggestfan, you obviously have nothing else to say to defend yourself, so for your own diginity (if you have any after calling yourself her biggest fan), just shut it.

  • MileyCyrusbiggestfan

    Welll sorry if i made u guys mad
    and idk how miley got into this fight
    i mean like i didnt say anything bout her
    but they r both talented
    and yerah i am a loser
    so sorry
