Taylor Swift Shakes It Off at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend 2015
Taylor Swift was one of the headliners at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend 2015, a three-day music festival held at Earlham Park in Norwich on May 23-25. The pop superstar performed six songs from her smash-hit album 1989, as well as some of her older classics, to a crowd of thousands of fans.
Swift opened her set with We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, her catchy breakup anthem from 2012. She then moved on to Blank Space, one of the biggest hits from 1989, which showcases her witty and self-aware lyrics. She followed it up with Style, a synth-pop song that is rumored to be about her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles.
The next song was I Knew You Were Trouble, another breakup song from her previous album Red. Swift showed off her vocal range and emotion as she sang the chorus with a powerful scream. She then switched gears to Love Story, her first crossover hit from 2008. The song is a modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet, and Swift updated it with a new arrangement that blends pop and country elements.
Swift closed her show with Bad Blood, the latest single from 1989. The song is about a feud with a former friend, and Swift was joined on stage by some of her famous friends, including Ellie Goulding, John Newman, and Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds. The song features a rap verse by Kendrick Lamar, but Swift rapped it herself at the Big Weekend.
Swift's performance was broadcasted live on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Three, and was also available online. Fans who missed it or want to watch it again can download the full concert in high definition (1080p) from various sources.

Swift is currently on her world tour for 1989, which started in May and will end in December. She has sold out stadiums and arenas across the globe, and has invited many surprise guests to join her on stage, such as Ed Sheeran, Lorde, Nick Jonas, and The Weeknd. She has also been nominated for nine MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year for Bad Blood.
Swift is one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation.

She is also known for her philanthropy and activism, supporting causes such as education, children's health, and animal welfare. aa16f39245
