Forget Prom! Taylor Swift's Big Night Out

05/17/2007 at 04:04 PM ET

Why go to prom if you can be the belle of the ball at the Academy of Country Music Awards? Wearing a custom-made gown by Nashville designer Sandi Spika and Tiffany pink sapphire earrings, seventeen year-old Taylor Swift got the chance last night to make up for missing a few key moments at school. “Every girl should have a night where they can dress up and feel like a princess,” said the high school senior (and nominee for top new female vocalist). “I didn’t go to prom this year so I feel like this could be my equivalent of senior prom.” Maybe better — aside from being nominated, the singing sensation also finally met the man who was inspiration for her top 5 single aptly titled, “Tim McGraw.” After performing the song in front of McGraw and wife Faith Hill, the songstress extended her hand, saying “Hi, I’m Taylor.”

Taylor looked beautiful! And I loved it when she entended her hand and said “Hi, I’m Taylor”. It showed how nervious she had to of been and how innocent she is. She is going to be big!
