Taylor Swift is preparing to open the 58th Annual Grammy Awards tonight, so here are six things to expect from Swift’s much anticipated night at the 2016 Grammy Awards.
1. She’ll “Rock the House”
Grammy Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich recently teased that Taylor is planning an explosive performance when she hits the stage tonight.
“I don’t know if we’ve talked about what the song is or not. I don’t think we have and I’d rather not give it away,” Ehrlich recently teased in a press release. “But she is gonna blow it out and it’s gonna rock the house.”
2. A New Single
Although Ken isn’t revealing exactly what Taylor will be singing at tonight’s show, that isn’t stopping insiders from spilling the beans.

Taylor Swift will allegedly be performing her new single “Out of the Woods” at tonight’s big ceremony. Twitter user Kimberly Dawn, who was supposedly present at rehearsals, appeared to confirm the news to excited Swift fans on social media.
Facebook user Hey Johnny also took to social media on February 14 to post alleged audio from Taylor’s soundcheck, where the star appeared to be prepping the 1989 song.
3. 7 More Grammys (Maybe!)
Swift is nominated for an impressive seven awards at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, meaning Swift could double her Grammy hardware in just one night.
At tonight’s big music show, Taylor is up for the prestigious Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for 1989, as well as Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance for “Blank Space.” The scathing “Bad Blood” is also nominated for Best Music Video as well as Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
People confirmed earlier this week that at least part of Taylor Swift’s infamous squad would be reunited at the big show. According to early seating sneak peeks, Swift will be attending the ceremony with famous bestie Selena Gomez, who will also be presenting an award.
5. No Drama with Kanye West
Despite recent circumstances surrounded Taylor’s alleged reignited feud with Kanye West, don’t expect Taylor to bring any “Bad Blood” to the Grammy awards. Hollywood Life claimed earlier this week that Swift isn’t planning to give West any further attention at the show, adding that Swift “she wants the Grammy Awards to be about her and her achievements and not Kanye West.”
“The Grammy Awards are going to be her night and Kanye has got enough free press from her coattails so she doesn’t want to give him anymore,” the source continued, adding that Taylor Swift plans to be “dancing all night and having fun.”
“That to Taylor is going to be great,” the source revealed. “Kanye keeps getting headlines off of her, his actions are below her.”
6. No Drama with Justin Bieber
It’s not just Kanye West who Taylor is allegedly looking to avoid any drama with. Hollywood Life reported last week that Bieber was actually “welcoming” the opportunity to run into Swift at the big music event.
“Justin has no concerns whatsoever about having a possible run-in with Taylor at the Grammys. In fact, he welcomes a run-in,” an inside source allegedly told the site. “Maybe it would help put an end to any ill feelings Taylor has towards Justin.”
The source also revealed that Justin is actually looking to be friends with Taylor Swift after the two haven’t exactly seen eye to eye following Bieber’s on-off relationship with Selena Gomez.
“He’d love it if they could just be friends once and for all. He’s convinced that if she got to know the ‘new, more mature’ Justin, that she’d really quite like him,” the source revealed.
