Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber’s performance during New Year’s Rockin’ Eve for Time Square on December 31, 2012 was a blast. Taylor Swift sang ”I Knew You Were Trouble” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” with gusto.
Justin Bieber sang three songs: “As Long As You Love Me,” “Beauty and the Beat,” and “Boyfriend.” Justin sang the acoustic version of “Boyfriend” with just a guitar.
Perhaps he had noticed from 13-year old, X Factor USA runner-up Carly Rose Sonenclar – who sang slowly his “As Long As You Love Me” – that his song could be great sang that way? Who knows?
American Idol host, Ryan Seacrest, co-hosted the event with Jenny McCarthy. It was another successful hosting stint by Seacrest, another feather to add to his cap.
Fans screamed their hearts out as Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber rendered their songs – live. The other celebrities who performed were PSY, The Wanted, and Carly Rae Jepsen.
