Taylor Swift‘s Red promotional tour reached a major apex today with a pair of performances in Rockefeller Center for Good Morning America, where Swift performed her lead single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” as well as the album’s title track. While Swift has performed “Together” a handful of times, she had only performed “Red” once previously — at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards — marking the GMA performance as the song’s debut to stateside viewers.

Looking chic in black (not red, but black!), Swift first gave a rendition of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” which was typically spirited and paired with sweet choreography and a crew of back-up dancers, before launching into “Red.” The twangy, metaphor-heavy track sounds impressive live — maybe even more so than “Together” — and, with Swift plucking away at a bright red guitar, it felt like the perfect cap to the build-up to the album’s launch.
