BACKSTAGE: 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve'

At 11:39 p.m., Swift took to the Times Square stage to perform "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" from her smash 2012 album "Red" for the New Year's masses. But according to Just Jared, the 23-year-old country-pop princess was seen in the arms of Styles, her handsome prince, by the stroke of midnight. The One Direction heartthrob had been spotted at Jay-Z and Coldplay's Barclays Center show in Brooklyn earlier in the night, but Styles high-tailed it to Times Sq. to catch Swift's performance and plant one on her in time for 2013.
