Pharrell Williams also made quite a statement by showing up in a giant hat, which many compared to the Arby's logo.

"It's so scratchy," she told E! host Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet before the show. "I think it's bulletproof! It's really heavy and all the things that you would expect it to be. It's like a suit of armor."

Taylor played her single "All Too Well" during her live performance, which is rumored to be about ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal.
