Taylor Swift lights up London mall for Christmas

Taylor Swift brought some early Christmas cheer to the U.K. on Tuesday night (06Nov12) when she turned on the festive lights at one of London's biggest shopping malls.

The Love Story hitmaker missed out on being at home on the day of the presidential election to perform a series of songs at the Westfield shopping centre in Shepherds Bush, west London.

More than 10,000 fans turned out to watch her mini-concert, before Swift flicked the switch to light up the mall's extravagant Christmas decorations.

She told the crowd, "I love everything about Christmas. I live on a Christmas tree farm but I never thought I'd be here switching on lights."

Justin Bieber and Rihanna have previously turned on the festive lights at the centre.
