2016 Grammy Awards: Taylor Swift Performs ‘Out of the Woods,’ Wins Album of the Year and Shades Kanye West
It’s a good day to be Taylor Swift.
The songtress was the opening act at the 2016 Grammy Awards, kicking off the ceremony with a rendition of her latest single, “Out of the Woods.” Changing out of her Versace Atelier two-piece gown for a glitzy catsuit, the singer was joined by friend Jack Antonoff, who co-wrote the song, for the performance.
Even before the show started, Swift, 26, had already nabbed her first Grammy of the night for Best Pop Vocal Album for 1989 and Best Music Video for “Bad Blood.”
Later that night, Swift won another golden gramophone for Album of the Year, making her the first woman ever to win in the category twice. She threw some not-so-subtle shade at on-again, off-again nemesis Kanye West, who recently claimed that he “made that bitch famous” with their longtime feud on his new record.
Swift said, “As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success, or take credit for your accomplishments, or your fame.”
Your move, Yeezy.
