Taylor Swift Had Laryngitis At A Show And STILL Crushed It

Not even a sore throat could ruin The Year of Taylor.

Taylor Swift shared some bad news with the world on Friday evening before her KIISFM Jingle Ball performance: she had a bad case of laryngitis. But she refused to let that keep her off stage.

I'm about to go onstage at @1027KIISFM #KIISJingleBall in LA. Fun fact: I have a wicked case of laryngitis. This should be interesting!

In this pre-show KIISFM interview, you can hear the harsh raspiness in her voice.

But she pulled through and then some! Listen to her kill it on her latest #1 single "Blank Space."

Just played #KIISJingleBall with @taylorswift13 at the @STAPLESCenter. Somehow she crushed it despite having laryngitis. Mind blown.

Sadly, her laryngitis hadn't cleared up in time for her second performance of the weekend...

About ready to go on at @CapitalOfficial Jingle Bell Ball- the voice is feeling hella bad but I'm here and ready to PARTY/sound like a frog.

But Taylor's performance at last night's Jingle Bell Ball in London didn't prove any different.
