Taylor Swift: 'Back To December' at CMA Awards -- VIDEO

Taylor Swift sings out to the crowd on an elevated piano as she performs at the 2010 CMA Awards held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday night (November 10).

The 20-year-old music maker recently told MTV about the song’s meaning, “I’ve never felt the need to apologize in a song before. But in the last two years I’ve experienced a lot, [including] a lot of different kinds of learning lessons and sometimes you learn a lesson too late and at that point you need to apologize because you were careless.”

Check out her performance below!

    She’s in the zone.

  • e

    she is wearing the same kind of dress that Ashley Tisdale wore to the HSM3 LA premiere 2008. Just an observation. She sounded good though.

  • Logan

    Beautiful! Her voice is getting soooo much better! I was never really a fan of Taylor until her third album. She has grown up so much in the past year or so.

  • Aeries

    She sounds really good, love this song =)

    finally she is starting to sound good live.

  • Ashley

    This is definitly her best live performance. Does anyone know why she said what at the end though?


    tht was amazing and she is wearing the exact same dress ashley wore to the hsm3 prm in la

  • Logan

    @Ashley: I was wondering the exact same thing. Her eyes got all wide and then she just mouthed “what.” It was strange. :/

    others said that she’s surprised for the “standing ovation” that’s why she reacted like that.

  • S

    She mouthed “what” because she was shocked by the standing ovation she was receiving.

    She sounds so much better live than she used to!

  • armyofkitties

    Actually, I DVR’d it and looked, part way through her performance but near the end, the crowd was shown and people seemed to be looking back like a somebody might have been there and tried to do something and got kicked or dragged out?? That’s what I observed but it will be interesting to see what really happened. Definitely not a look someone would make if there was a standing ovation.

  • Kanani

    She was wonderful & looked gorgeous!

  • BBJ

    @Jenn: I don’t think that look was for the standing ovation. We’ve all seen her happy/shocked face and that definitely was not it. However, there was a standing ovation. That has been confirmed by people who attended. There’s a rumor that there was a streaker so that could be it.
