Taylor Swift has invited a few special guests to perform with her at the Academy of Country Music awards in Las Vegas on Sunday — 16 of them, to be exact. 

According to The Boot, the 20-year-old country star found University of California San Diego’s a cappella group the Tritones on YouTube. She reportedly found a video of the 16-person group singing her hit single, ‘You Belong With Me,’ and was so impressed that she contacted the group’s student manager to see if the Tritones would be willing to perform with her at the ACMs. They obviously agreed.

Originally formed in 1996, the Tritones are UC San Diego’s first co-ed a cappella group, consisting of eight male students and eight female students. Taylor is nominated for five ACMs this year, including Song of the Year and Video of the Year for ‘You Belong With Me,’ so we expect the Tritones to sing this song with Taylor on Sunday.

Taylor Swift graces the pages of the upcoming issue of VOGUE in which the 20-year-old talks on new goals, and her loves in life.

On sparkly dresses: ‘I just love them. Especially onstage, because I think it’s kind of fun when the spotlight hits you and your dress, for a millisecond, blinds people.’ 

Taylor calls herself a ‘spillover artist’, her music fills up country radio until it spills over into pop and then up and over again into adult contemporary. Because of this, she’s had the best run at the top of the charts of any artist in a decade. At 20, she is the youngest person ever to win the Grammy for Album of the Year. Her new album will be very personal, but it will be about being 20, not 16:

‘I don’t think I could put on a new character for two years of my life if it wasn’t really what I was going through. I have these formulas for making music; they’re almost mathematical: Who are you today? What did you write about in your diary? What idea hit you at 4:00 A.M.?’

Taylor still eats at Cracker Barrel and shops at Urban Outfitters: ‘Looking back on what these past two years have been for me, it feels like this magical dream of, Really? We toured all over the world? We played an arena in London? This is happening? Readjusting my goals and dreams has been something I’ve had to do a lot lately.’

Is Taylor Swift torn between two young hunks?

We can’t independently validate this report, but that’s the rumor going around. The hot rumor. It all started when she spent the night of March 23 cozying up to Glee cast member Cory Monteith at Pinz Bowling Center in Studio City, Calif.

Then, the very next day, Swift reunited with former co-star and ex-boyfriend, Eclipse star Taylor Lautner, for lunch. Are both just friends – or potential boyfriends?

If it’s the latter, how many heartthrobs does one girl need, and who’s the frontrunner?

The Taylors are “good friends,” an insider tells OK!, while Cory Monteith and Swift are more than that – and have been “happily and quietly dating” for a while!
