Kimberly Belflower: "All Too Well" (Live at the 2014 Grammys). "All Too Well" is my all-time favorite Taylor Swift song, but because it was never a single, I didn't think we'd ever have the treat of seeing it performed live outside of her tours. This performance at the 2014 Grammys gave me everything I wanted and more from a song I have played over 850 times on my iTunes (truly). Production-wise, it's more understated than we often see Taylor at award shows: just a girl at a piano, telling a story. She lets herself be completely vulnerable, and we see every flicker of feeling on her face as she relives the magic and the heartbreak of a past relationship. It's a focused, heartbreaking, powerhouse performance. Also, hair flips have never had more emotional subtext.
