Taylor Swift Records West Side Story Song for MTV’s VMA Awards

Taylor Swift has recorded a version of “Tonight,” a classic song from the Broadway musical, West Side Story, for MTV’s Video Music Awards . Swift’s rendition will be combined with other performances by Cobra Starship, Katy Perry, Russell Brand and Ne-Yo. The ceremony will take place Sept. 13 in New York City. “My version of ‘Tonight’ was pretty theatrical because I listened to the song and I heard the song and I’m just like, ‘There’s no way to do this and not play it up,’” Swift told MTV News. She is nominated for best female video for “You Belong With Me.”
