To celebrate this honor, she performed a medley of her hits. First, she performed "The Man," a women's empowerment anthem that gave a slight nod to the drama she's undergone with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, the men who she says held her music hostage.
She performed alongside a bunch of young fans — ugh, WHAT A MOMENT.
She then performed "Love Story," a song that changed the trajectory of her career.
I'm literally her mom crying in the audience.
After "Love Story," she burst into "I Knew You Were Trouble," which was fiery and spooky and badass.
She then performed "Blank Space," where she served vocals and visuals.
After, Taylor brought out Camila Cabello and Halsey to sing "Shake It Off." Legends supporting legends.
She closed the performance with a piano rendition of "Lover," while Misty Copeland danced ballet. The intersection of talent and art...wow.
Her piano had the names of all of her albums engraved into it. Two (should've been three) Grammy Album of the Year wins in there, y'all.
In conclusion, Taylor gave a perfect performance that reflected her incredible career — one that merges art, talent, singing, grace, love, and so much more.
I screamed, sang, cried, and contemplated how someone could be so iconic. Then, I realized she's Taylor Swift.
