We are not out of the woods yet -- we're actually heading straight into the forest (and to the beach).

What we learned from the inside perspective: Yes, those trees behind Taylor were really on fire. No, she did not actually grow roots in the forest (she was just standing on a platform and ready for editors to work their CGI magic).

On Sunday, it was announced that Swift will perform at the Grammys. Does this "Out of the Woods" bonus video mean she might perform the 1989 song at Monday's show? Stay tuned.
