Washington D.C. [ANI], Oct. 23 (ANI): Taylor Swift was on fire as she performed many of her hits including 'New Romantics', 'Blank Space', 'Style', 'Shake it Off' at the recent grand prix in Austin.

During her first and only concert performance of 2016, ' Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix' weekend in Austin, Texas, the Grammy winner tore through a number of her hits, reports E! Online.

The beloved star welcomed close to 80,000 screaming fans as she strutted across the stage in a short, black, sparkly outfit.

The 26-year-old singer-songwriter blazed through ' New Romantics' and ' 22' in quick succession to open the show.

Then, her set list also included 'I Knew You Were Trouble', 'You Belong With Me' where she accompanied herself on the guitar, 'Fifteen', 'Holy Ground', 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', 'Bad Blood', then a mashup of 'Wildest Dreams' and 'Enchanted'.

However, the cherry on top may have been a stripped-down version of 'This Is What You Came For', the track Swift allegedly co-wrote for then-boyfriend Calvin Harris.

"As a songwriter, the most rewarding feeling in the world is writing something and having a crowd sing it back to you because you know the words," Swift told the audience, which she had encouraged to join her at every turn.

"I never played this song live before, but you know it. Maybe you can sing along," she encouraged.

Reportedly, fans lined up for what looked like a mile to be let into the venue, where presumably quite a few young ladies got their first-ever glimpse of live Formula One racing. (ANI)
