Taylor Swift fans who can’t wait to see The Hunger Games—and we’re betting there are a lot of them—got a special treat over the weekend.
That’s because the country pop princess performed, for the first time ever, “Eyes Open,” the tune she contributed to the would-be blockbuster hitting theaters this weekend. These are the greatest fans I have come across. The young girls I ran into waiting to see The Hunger Games, had read the book several times and you can bet they know every word of the song.
“I’m really excited about it…but, I mean, you don’t think I’d get in trouble if I played it now? Probably not, right?” Swift teased the thousands of screaming concertgoers who packed Auckland, New Zealand’s Vector Arena last night.
She then launched into a solo acoustic rendition of “Eyes Open” that began with the refrain: “Everybody’s waiting/Everybody’s watching/Even when you’re sleeping/Keep your eye-eyes open.”
