American Music Awards 2012: Taylor Swift Surprises With Dubstep

November 19, 2012 02:57 PM by Stephanie Gustafson

When you think of Taylor Swift’s music, what initially comes to mind? Sappy lyrics? Country vibe? We’re willing to bet you don’t typically associate the singer and Punk’d star with the catchy beat that dominates dubstep. But at last night’s American Music Awards, Taylor Swift did her best to show the audience that she could extend her musical range beyond country pop. The result was…interesting…

Taylor Swift had a great showing at the American Music Awards, taking home the prize for country female artist.  During her acceptance speech, the singer told the audience, “I’m stoked….I’m really, really happy right now and that’s all because of you.”

As exciting as the big win must have been for Taylor Swift, it was certainly not the country star’s most memorable moment of the night. Nope, that memorable moment arrived later, when she returned to perform new single I Knew You Were Trouble, a song allegedly written in the aftermath of Taylor’s breakup with fellow musician John Mayer. But instead of performing the song in that slightly angry but very country

Despite the presence of a dubstep beat, Taylor began her performance with the usual good girl vibe, decked out in a modest white dress. The presence of masked men suggested that something a bit more scandalous might be on the way, a foreshadowing that came to fruition when Taylor ripped off her white dress to reveal a red corset and black tulle skirt, complete with fishnet tights. She then got her dominatrix on, kicking the masked men to the ground and tossing her hair in what we can only guess was an attempt at head banging. It all seemed a bit awkward coming from the usually sweet country star.

We’ll let you judge the new Taylor Swift for yourself. Check out the following video and then share your reaction below!

    First off, this isn’t dubstep. Your writer has no clue what dubstep is. Second, Dubstep= 140 bpm half step rythms and bass. This had no bass and was not a 140 bpm half step rythm. Kids these days thinking that music with wobbles is dubstep. It is electro house. This is what happens when you let 13 year olds run a blog.
