■ Taylor Swift was recently announced as a 2016 Grammys performer, and today we know she'll open the show with a song off 1989 which earned her seven nominations.
USA Today claims Swift will not perform a song that is nominated, which rules out “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood.” They also add the “Grammys performance will mark the first time Swift has delivered the song live on television.” Though we're not entirely sure what their definition of “live” is, but if that's the case, we can also cross off “Out Of The Woods,” “Welcome To New York,” and “Shake It Off.”
All that's left is “Style,” which she played during the pre-taped Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2015, so if they're considering that live then that, too, is out of the running. [USA Today]
