Taylor Swift went "Back to December" in her live performance of the November 10 CMA Awards. The country music cutie sat behind a black grand piano and crooned her mellow lines of the song which is lifted from her 2010 fastest-selling album "Speak Now".

Her performance was introduced by "Country Strong" star Leighton Meester. Swift opted a long slivery gown and put on red lipstick with her blond hair up. The December winter atmosphere was brought to the stage with fake snow falling.

"Your guard is up and I know why/ Because the last time you saw me is still burned in the back of your mind," she sang. "You gave me roses, and I left them there to die/ So this is me swallowing my pride standing in front of you/ Saying I'm sorry for that night and I go back to December all the time."

Ya, I want to know what was up with her face and "what" reaction at the end. It was NOT "what, they are giving me a standing O", it was an offended face.

the look on her face wasn't cause she got a standing O, cause she didnt'! Someone said something that pissed her off or something and the real Diva in her came out! That was a pissed off look!maybe cause she thought she had more time and they told her to get off and dimmed the lights and pulled the curtain. The look on Carrie's face when they turned the camera on her, you could tell something happened!

That was so weird. I think she thought she had more time or something.
