Prior to taking the stage to open the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, Taylor Swift confessed to Ryan Seacrest that she was feeling nervous.
But, none of that was on display when the moment finally came.

And then came her now-expected girl talk rant over the melody…
“So he calls me up and he’s like, ‘I still love you.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m sorry. I’m busy opening up the Grammys.’”
Except this time she read it in a faux-British accent—a possible jab at most recent ex, Harry Styles.
