Taylor Swift

It’s always one of the biggest events of the year, and Taylor Swift came to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards tonight (August 25) ready to have a smashing good time.

Looking sexy in a snazzy ensemble, the “Love Story” showed off her posing prowess before winning Best Female Video for her tune “I Knew You Were Trouble.”

In addition to her two nominations, including the coveted Video of the Year award, the 23-year-old songstress will also present a moonman to a lucky winner at the ceremony.

While everybody always says it’s an honor just to be nominated, the Best Song of the Summer award hopefuls are all secretly hoping to crush the competition.

The nominees include Miley Cyrus for “We Can’t Stop,” Daft Punk for “Get Lucky,” Selena Gomez for “Come & Get It,” Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding for “I Need Your Love,” One Direction for “Best Song Ever,” and Robin Thicke for “Blurred Lines.”
