Taylor Swift is never ever getting back together with the boy at the center of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" (Jake Gyllenhaal, perhaps?), but the pop superstar reunited with the MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday with great fanfare.

Swift performed her smash hit single "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" to close out the broadcast, marking the first time Swift was given that honor. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 upon its release and sold a record-setting 623,000 digital copies.

Like the video for the song, Swift's VMA performance was marked by plenty of pointing and unfortunate furry costumes for her bandmates.
