Wow I'm really surprised that she is last right now- in my opinion she sounds beautiful live and pretty much the same as in her studio versions. Plus, she really does amazing shows. Fireworks, moving stages, floating balconies, her shows seriously have EVERYTHING. And the whole time your thinking "amazing! " I saw her RED concert but I really wished I hadn't missed her Speak Now concert

She's able to put a show and let no one disappointed. Her "Speak Now Tour" is a theatrical experience full of lights, pyro, acrobatics, and also her acoustic guitar!

She is amazing. She knows how to put on a show, and her voice is beautiful. She also plays guitar, and performs so well. She's just amazing, I don't know what to say.

Have you heard the Wildest Dreams/Enchanted Mashup? It's so beautiful, and her vocals are treacherous!
