Taylor Swift kicked off the 58th annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The 26-year-old took the stage in a sequined jumpsuit, performing “Out of the Woods” from her Grammy-winning album “1989.”

Swift strutted across the stage, which was decorated as a lush forest. The singer released the “Out of the Woods” music video in December, a year after the release of her “1989” album.

By the time she opened the show, Swift already had two wins from this year’s Grammy Awards. The seven-fold nominee took home the prize for best pop vocal album for “1989.” Swift and Kendrick Lamar also nabbed the best music video award for their collaboration “Bad Blood.”

Swift tweeted Monday afternoon shortly after winning for “1989.”

The singer is also up for record of the year for “Blank Space,” album of the year for “1989,” and song of the year for “Blank Space.”

Swift’s “Blank Space” was also nominated for best pop solo performance, but Ed Sheeran took home the award for “Thinking Out Loud.” Additionally, Swift’s collaboration with Lamar, “Bad Blood,” was up for best pop duo/group performance, but Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars received the award for “Uptown Funk.”

The 58th Grammy Awards are live on CBS.
