Last night, Los Angeles' Hollywood Boulevard was COMPLETELY taken over by Taylor Swift. And we mean COMPLETELY. The 1989 singer made an appearance on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! for an interview and then a performance for over 15,000 fans. She took to the stage to sing her two latest singles, "Shake It Off" and "Out Of The Woods."
Before kicking off the stellar performance, Kimmel spoke with the singer behind the desk, introducing her as "the youngest person to be named Billboard's Woman of the Year, the youngest person to win the Grammy for Album of the Year, and in about 30 minutes, she will be the youngest women ever to shut down Hollywood Boulevard during rush hour traffic."
Once comfortably in the chair, Swift spoke with the ABC host about the new album (which she seems incredibly excited about) and trying to sneak into Kimmel's studio to meet the music booker in order to have him hear her play. For the record, Kimmel forced the booker (who kicked Swift out of the studio!) to be in the studio last night and he seemed pretty speechless... until he was kicked out, of course.

The 1989 singer then took to Hollywood Boulevard – and completely shut it down – to perform "Shake It Off" and "Out Of The Woods." And unsurprisingly, she didn't disappoint.
Following the performance, Swift took to Twitter to express her appreciation:
Thank you to the thousands of people who came to Hollywood Blvd to watch us play. It made me so emotional, you have no idea. Love you.
