Taylor Swift didn't need much to bring Grammy Awards attendees to their feet last night.

Just her piano. Some solid vocals. Memories of her split from Jake Gyllenhaal. And a whole lot of hair flipping.

That summarizes the young star's rendition of "All Too Well" as succinctly as possible, as Swift sang this song off the album "Red" for the first time at an awards show.

Did it have the fun energy of Beyonce and Jay-Z opening the event on CBS? Nope. But it did leave the Internet talking a lot and it did result in a standing ovation.

Watch the emotional performance now:

It was taped a month ago, but the 2013 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show aired on CBS last night.

And while most of the attention at the event was on beauties such as Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, Cara Delevingne and many others, Taylor Swift also made her talented presence felt.

No, she didn't strut down the runway in her underway.

But Swift did open the show by performing alongside Fall Out Boy and then returned later on for a solo rendition of "I Knew You Were Trouble."

Watch both performances now:

Taylor Swift will release a new album at some point in the near future. It will feature a fresh sonic backdrop.

But fans of Swift need not wait to long to hear new music from the singer, as she has come out with "Stranger Than Fiction," a track that will play over the closing credits of the film One Chance.

It tells the tale of Paul Potts, a down-on-his-luck clerk who grew into an opera sensation during a 2007 run on Britain's Got Talent.

For the single, Taylor takes on the persona of a long-time fan who always believed in Potts, crooning that she's seen him fall and she's seen him crawl on his knees… but she never lost her faith in the man.
