Taylor Swift has quickly become one of the country music scene's biggest stars and she has a extravagant stage show to match, as she proved when she performed in Toronto last night. Not content with an array of different outfits, the 20-year-old incorporated a Singing In The Rain inspired routine into the show at the Air Canada Centre, which was part of her Fearless Tour. Taylor performed her final song as a cascade of water poured from above, drenching her while she sang the final encore - Should've Said No.Initially dressed as a majorette, Swift emerged from beneath her bright, colourful set - featuring a T-shaped catwalk at the front - with her dancers dressed as cheerleaders, and her band in school band regalia.
But she soon exchanged the dorky look for a sexier vamped out style in black leather boots. Swift ripped off the bandleader coat to reveal a sparkly silver mini-dress underneath. She told her excited audience: 'I think it's entirely possible that I've fallen in love with you after two songs. And I think that it's that kind of deep, pure love, that lasts forever. I love you like I love burning my ex-boyfriend's pictures.'The singer has been on the road almost relentlessly since last year in support of her multi-platinum, Grammy-winning second album, 2008's Fearless. After a costume change into a red sequined mini-dress, then launched into Forever And Always, a song written about Jonas as a last-minute add-on to Fearless.
Later in the show Swift appeared in the audience stands to sing, Hey Stephen, in a new blue dress and brown cowboy boots and, according to reports, the crowd was besides themselves as she shook hands with and hugged as many of them as possible en route back to the stage. She also wore an old country maid style dress during the Fearless mega-hit Love Story, and used two different guitars, one of which was covered in glittering gems. The singer performed a variety of her songs at the sell out concert, with a set list consisting of 18 tracks in total.
This included Love Story, White Horse, You Belong With Me and, of course, the title track from the album Fearless. According to reports Taylor helped Demi Lovato, after the Disney Channel star was recently dumped by her boyfriend Joe Jonas. The country star apparently felt she had some experience, once being the victim of Joe Jonas break-up herself.
'Taylor sent Demi a quick text message, saying that everything happens for a reason, and it will only make her stronger,' a close friend of Swift's is alleged to have said to Angry Ape. 'She told Demi if she ever needed anything, to just ask.'The Camp Rock co-stars dated for around two months before Jonas called split with Lovato over the phone. This could be considered to be a step up from the text message he used to break up with ex-girlfriend Swift two years earlier.
