Taylor Swift created a dance party on stage during her performance of “Shake It Off,” on The X Factor UK yesterday (October 12). The singer, sparkling in a black sequined top and matching short-shorts, performed alongside a group of tuxedo-clad backup dancers. The ’20s-inspired design of the stage (complete with backup singers wearing flapper dresses) was a good distraction from Swift’s not-so-strong vocals.

“Shake It Off” continues to dominate the Hot 100 chart for seven straight weeks, and is currently sitting at the #2 spot. Her appearance on The X Factor UK was a part of her promotional tour for her upcoming fifth studio LP, 1989 (out on October 27). The follow-up single, “Out Of The Woods,” will be released on October 14.
