Taylor Swift Radio

Taylor Swift might be able to draw thousands of Swifties to Hollywood Boulevard (enough to shut it down) for a free TV concert, but she's still concerned about the critics. The country-pop superstar tells ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" she's always uncomfortable hearing reviews of her work.  But she adds that it's something every artist experiences, whether they admit it or not. 

But Taylor says she has more confidence in her upcoming release, 1989, than she's had in any of her other albums.

In addition to chatting with Kimmel, Taylor gave a free concert on Hollywood Boulevard, which was blocked off to traffic for the event. Kimmel said the performance drew an estimated crowd of 15,000 fans, who began lining up to see the singer hours before she took the stage. 

Taylor's performance included her most recent chart-topper, "Shake It Off," as well as the album cut "Out of the Woods" - which was the first time she performed the song!
