Taylor Swift Didn’t Need No Stinkin’ Awards at the ACMs (VIDEO)

Looks like Taylor Swift has bounced back from that shaky Grammys performance quite nicely. The Fearless songbird brought down the house—or at least descended on the house—at last night’s Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas on Sunday, delivering a show-stopping performance of “Change” that began with the country phenomenon being lowered to the stage in a massive cage, then coursing through the crowd and joining the University of California, San Diego a cappella group The Tritones for a rousing finale.

Alas, despite her inspiring performance, Swift walked away from the ACMs empty-handed—she lost out in each of the five categories she was nominated in. Oh well; her trophy room is probably in dire need of expansion these days anyway. And the fewer awards she wins, the less potential there is for yet another awkward acceptance-speech moment.
