At age 24, Taylor Swift is already a seasoned veteran of the awards show trail. And whenever she shows up, she finds a way to make herself the center of attention. At the 2014 Grammys however, Taylor outdid herself, dancing, mugging, and head-banging her way to GIF immortality.
The highlight of the all-Taylor evening came about 2/3 of the way through her performance of her song, "All Too Well" when, apparently overcome with the emotion of her break-up ballad, the singer suddenly fell backwards and lunged forwards, her hair flying over her head as she treated the world to a decidedly un-Swiftian head-bang.
The union of country and metal was complete, and the internet instantly exploded as a million Tweeters and Tumblrs immediately posted and re-posted the moment.
Here then were the greatest Taylor-iffic moments from Swift's big night.
