Taylor Swift put on a raucous performance of her song ’22’ at the Billboard Awards.

Taylor Swift put on an amazingly choreographed performance of her hit song “22” at the Billboard Music Awards. She began backstage, jumped through a costume rack and rode and office chair down a hall on her way to the stage. A back-up performer literally climbed a wall to avoid her.

She arrived on stage on the back of a BMX bike for a funky number backed by a small army of dancers in colorful street clothes.

The awards show highlighted a stellar year for the 23-year-old singer. The awards are based largely on record sales, and Swift was nominated in 11 categories, equaled only by Maroon 5.

On the blue carpet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, she wore a dramatic royal blue Zuhair Murad micro-mini dress that was adorned with an intricate pattern and a ton of blue sequins.

She finished the look with Jimmy Choo shoes and clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry

For her performance of “22,″ off her album Red, she wore a short-sleeve blue top with a “My Pony” unicorn print and a slogan “Haters Gonna’ Hate,” in rainbow colors. She also wore dark high-waist short-shorts with an eight-button front.
