Taylor Swift’s isolated vocals from her VMA performance are, ummm, not good

Last night Taylor Swift ushered in her new pop music direction by performing “Shake It Off” live at the MTV Video Music Awards. It was entertaining and Tay looked good, but whoa, strip away all the vocal enhancement and yikes…

Move over Britney Spears, you’ve got company when it comes to people isolating your vocals from a song and it not sounding good as we thought: welcome to your new era Taylor Swift.

Oh well, at least we have this…

Tay’s Gonna Tay.
