Taylor Swift promised fans Red would feature some musical risks, and her performances have been just as risky — and awesome! At the American Music Awards last night, Tay performed her next single “I Knew You Were Trouble” and all we can say is WOW.

Not only is the song totally different than what we’re used to hearing from Tay (the lyrics are trademark breakup Taylor, but the music is full of rock and a little bit of dubstep) but the performance was also super extravagant.

We’re used to seeing Taylor do sweet sets with her guitar and cutesy dresses, but this performance proved that she’s ready to move on to bigger and flashier things! We can’t get over how much we love everything about the performance: the smoke, the masquerade ball-type costumes, Taylor’s ah-mazing costume change, or those wicked dance moves.

Taylor’s already a country queen, but with performances like this, she could be a full-fledged pop princess.

Check out the video and tell us what you think? Did YOU know T.Swizzle could bust a move like that? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
