Taylor Swift brought down the house at the AMAs by setting it on fire during her opening number.

The starlet performed 'Blank Space' from her 1989 album and followed the theme of the wildly popular music video by running from date to date across three stages.

Wires and performers helped with the "crazy woman" image she was going for, with men being catapulted out of her way.

Watch her performance below.
