Pop stars and fast cars: Taylor Swift plays Formula One

22nd October marks #4YearsOfRed for Taylor Swift 1

Visitors from all over the world packed into "Circuit of the Americas" Saturday for the Formula One qualifying race and Taylor Swift's concert. During the show, Swift debuted a solo piano version of "This Is What You Came For", the Calvin Harris hit from earlier this year that became the focal point of a controversy between the former lovers when Swift revealed that she'd co-written the cut after originally keeping it a secret.

She later took to Instagram to share some snaps from her incredible performance.

But Saturday night belonged to Swift as she dazzled fans with set that ran about 90 minutes, full of hits from her previous albums.

Taylor Swift, 26, dazzled thousands of fans at the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix on October 22 with a stripped down performance of ex Calvin Harris', 32, smash song, "This Is What You Came For".

But on Saturday night Taylor played to an audience of 80,000 at the Super Stage in Austin's Del Valle.

Meanwhile, Taylor's ability to sing the song live might be a surprise to some as Calvin famously banned his other ex - Rita Ora - from performing the song they created together, I Will Never Let You Down.

The voice actor's strike is underway in video game business
The guild wants contingent compensation on the back end for actors in games that are especially successful. Nearly all of the unaffected games are now operating under codenames, except for Mass Effect: Andromeda.

"As a songwriter, the most rewarding feeling in the world is writing something and then having a crowd sing it back to you, because they know the words".

In addition to everything else in her catalog, she performed This Is What You Came For live for the first time!

There were rumors Swift might surprise by dropping a new album, but no.

"She's obviously such a great friend, and you know she is starting to go back to work in the studio again, and really made time to be here for me, and I am so grateful for that", the 21-year-old model shared.
