|Should Taylor Swift be taking vocal lessons from Mary J Blige|
Taylor Swift is an odity in todays music market. Despite not having a large presence on the Billboard singles chart, this lady still manages to shift vast quanities of her album.
Being as big a seller as Taylor is she has attracted a fare share of haters, and what with her being a solid songwriter, critically acclaimed, and easy on the eye, the haters have aimed their vitriol at her apparent inability to sing live. To judge if this assertion is true, I turned super-sleuth and conducted a Youtube search using the words "Mine"-which is Taylor's latest single- and "live". (The video I chose is posted below)
Can she sing live? well judging by this performance the answer is yes. She may have had some dud performances previously, because there's usually no smoke without fire, but this video shows, without a doubt, she does have the ability to perform and sing live. Watch the album version and the live version below and judge for yourself.
