I'll be the first to admit...
...that as much as I love T-Swift (she just gets me, ya know?), I've never been one to claim she's an amazing vocalist. Top notch songwriter? For sure. But bless the use of autotune on her records, because her live performances tend to sound verrrrry different than the album tracks.
Taylor performed a moving acoustic version of "Out Of the Woods" last month at the closing of her GRAMMY Museum exhibit, The Taylor Swift Experience. And it was simply stunning.
In addition to her impressive piano accompaniment, Taylor offered some legitimately strong vocals. She not only stayed on pitch, but she actually conveyed a rich tone and wide range.
