Despite picking up three awards, sad Taylor Swift was filmed crying following her Grammys performance

It should have been a brilliant evening for Taylor Swift on Monday, what with her winning three awards at The Grammys – so why was she left CRYING on her big night?

The 1989 hitmaker was caught on camera wiping away tears and being comforted by her gal-pal Selena Gomez as she returned to her seat following her show-opening performance of Out Of The Woods.

The reason for the upset? Was it because boyfriend Calvin Harris wasn’t at her side? Was she still smarting over that spat with Kanye West?

Nope. It turns out she was annoyed with herself for missing a SINGLE note in her performance.

In the vid, Taylor – sporting her sparkly stage outfit and a killer new haircut – can be see mouthing ‘I missed that note’ to a concerned friend who leans in to check on her.

Talk about being your own worst critic!

Selena – Tay-Tay’s date for the evening after Calvin couldn’t get away from the studio where he’s currently working on new material – did her best to comfort her pal, snuggling in to her and putting a supportive hand on her leg. That’s what #GirlSquads are for!

Taylor managed to put her disappointment aside when she went up on stage to collect her award for Album of the Year, giving an inspiring acceptance speech – and hitting back at Kanye in the process.

A defiant Taylor told the audience: ‘As the first women to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.

‘But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people side track you, someday when you get to where you’re going; you’ll look around and you’ll know that it was you and the people who love you that put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.

‘Thank you for this moment.’

Go Tay!
