This also isn't a change of pace either. This is similar in the vein to White Horse, Your Not Sorry, and Should Of Said No, just the lyrics are inverted to where she is the one who wronged the other party. This is by no means a change of pace for her lyrically, as it sounds very similar to her old material. I also don't think there is too much about this that is special production wise.
I also agree that there are other songs off the album that are better pop single choices like Better Than Revenge, Sparks Fly, Mean, and Haunted, although they (aside from SF and maybe Mean) may not be the best country-pop choices.
"Because my music - especially my live stuff - is very showy, a lot of people don't respect it as art. Because I'm young, soft-spoken and nice to people, they go ahead and assume things.' 'But everything I have ever done - even my movie - I helped to write. I'm the complete opposite of a puppet.'" - Britney Spears
I thought her vocal peformance of December on Ellen was more than I would normally expect from her. Her Mine performances have had some shaky vocals. This however is a bit more solid in the vocal department. It may not pack the bunch of let's say Carrie, but she goes far enough to put on a decent performance .
Ughh, I hate it when she acts all "surprised". Bitch knows that she's the hottest thing in Country right now, what were they gonna do? just sit there for there "cash cow"?
Taylor doesn't receive standing ovations routinely at country award shows (people seem to be particularly harsh with her live performances and I'm sure she's aware of this), so I am sure the "what?" expression was genuine.
Either way I think it's pretty silly people pick apart her reactions when Taylor has stated several times she never assumes anything (in regard to winning awards or success in general). I think people are searching for negativity. Why is it so far-fetched to simply believe she'd actually be surprised by the reaction? How many times has Taylor Swift received a standing ovation at these types of events? Not many.

I think Taylor is just displaying her self awareness right? She's talked recently about how she knows her vocals can be off live. Which I think is a good thing to be conscious of public reaction...and not be in denial or ignorance.
I think that's what happened here. It wasn't a bad performance, but it wasn't that special or out of the ordinary to receive a standing ovation, and I think she realized that.
