B.o.B and Taylor Swift Perform ‘Both of Us’ at Z100’s Jingle Ball

It was far from a silent night at Z100’s annual Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Friday. In addition to performances from Justin Bieber, fun., and Ne-Yo, B.o.B and Taylor Swift shared the stage to perform their Strange Clouds collaboration “Both of Us” live for the first time.

“She’s America’s sweetheart, a real genuine person,” Bobby Ray told Rap-Up.com of his collaborator.

The two struck up a friendship after performing “Airplanes” together in Dallas last year.

On Wednesday night, Taylor beatboxed with another hip-hop superstar, LL Cool J, while co-hosting the Grammy nominations special.

“I am like 100 percent sure we are not going to be nominated for that collaboration,” she told LL.
