The country star talks about singing in the rain at the ACM awards
Just call it Flashdance, country style.
“I’ve dreamt about that performance since I was in middle school,” the 18-year-old singer says on her MySpace Celebrity page.
“I’ve always wanted to perform an angry song and have water rain down from the ceiling and have a little freakout onstage.”
Swift and awards show producers rigged up the “rain” performance as a surprise for her fans.
“Oh, and the water was like 40 degrees. So cold,” she adds.
Earlier in the night, Swift won the award for top new female vocalist and thanked her fans on her blog.
“Honestly I didn’t expect to come away with an award, and I have you to thank for all of the things you’ve done to support me. You’re the reason my album is 3x platinum. You’re the reason the concerts sell out. You’re the reason I’m able to be out here in Vegas.”
“Nicole Kidman is so incredibly gracious and friendly, and gets the ‘Most Beautiful in Person’ award. Hands down.”
