Taylor Swift Cleared To Perform Songs At AMAs

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift fans rejoice as the pop star has now been cleared to perform many of her old songs at the American Music Awards.

It is no secret that the singer holds a lot of animosity towards her former record label, Big machine and she made this even clearer in an open letter criticising Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta whom she feels are holding back many of her songs.

This letter caused a lot of backlash against the music executives with the #IStandWithTaylor hashtag trending all over social media.

It has now been revealed that Swift has been given permission  to perform her old song.

In a statement revealing this, the record label said:”The Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions announce that they have come to terms on a licensing agreement that approves their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms.


“This includes the upcoming American Music Awards performances for Thomas Rhett and former Big Machine Records recording artist Taylor Swift.”

The statement also cleared up the question of what happens to if Swift was to perform any of these songs on live television by adding,”It should be noted that recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media.


“Record label approval is only needed for contracted artists’ audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed.”

Scooter Braun has always maintained that he in no way tried to screw Taylor Swift over and is disappointed at how he has been made to look online.

It is hoped that this calms things down somewhat.
