Before she even hit the red carpet at the 2012 Grammy Awards, Taylor Swift already had two wins under her belt. At the pre-show awards ceremony, Swift won Best Country Song for her anti-bullying ditty, “Mean.” The song also scored her an award for Best Country Solo Performance.
It didn’t ease her anxiety about performing at the show, though. “Oh, I get so nervous!” she told TV Guide on the red carpet. “Are you kidding me?”
Also on the carpet, she discussed choosing her Zuhair Murad dress — which included her usual sparkles, but in a more grown-up silhouette, including a cut-out back. (We kind of wanted to give her a cookie.) She admitted that she sometimes struggles to choose a red carpet look.
Not this time, though. “There’s something really wonderful when you just know,” she said, before heading inside for her performance.
