Taylor Swift Performs ‘State Of Grace’ On ‘X Factor’ (VIDEO)

Last night on X Factor, Taylor Swiftperformed my favorite song off her new album Red – “State of Grace.” The moment I heard she would be performing the song live for the first time I was THRILLED! It’s a great example of how she is mixing up her sound a little these days. Also, if you can get your hands on the acoustic version of this song, it’s lovely. #musicrules.

Love is a ruthless game unless you play it good and right.

Taylor’s performance as not as powerful was I envisioned it in my mind, but she still shined with her red mic — and I LOVED the lighting cues. Take a look at her performance here, and keep watching for some advice she shared for the young X Factor contestants.
