Taylor Swift Has Performed Her 'Reputation' Songs Live For The First Time

Gigi Hadid wished Taylor Swift a happy birthday

Taylor Swift performed two tracks from her new album 'Reputation' on last night's episode of Saturday Night Live - watch clips of the two performances below.

"Swift, making her first official SNL appearance since 2009, first took the stage with the first ever performance of "... It was not made available to music streaming services, in line with the singer's previous releases.

Swift herself saw the report thanks to her family members in the area and made sure to alert Hettiger to her approval via social media.

She additionally wrote a heartfelt letter to fans in Reputation's album booklet.

Swift then slowed things down for a surprising acoustic rendition of "Call It What You Want". Swift continued her snake motif by singing with a gold microphone in the shape of a serpent.

The first song, "Are You Ready for It?", found Swift and her four dancers/backing singers performing to a pre-recorded backing track of the song's throbbing electronic rhythm. It had the biggest YouTube debut in history with more than 43 million views in the first 24 hours.

Her performances were hyped up consistently throughout the week and our main point of curiosity was whether or not she was going to open with established hits from the album or go instead with some material from the album that hasn't had as much play.

USA Today's Maeve McDermott said the album was a "fully formed look at a singer in love, and in control", while Jon Caramanica at the New York Times called it "bombastic, unexpected and sneakily potent".
