In America we may be gearing up for our most gluttonous of holidays, but one of the most prized members of our nation was overseas yesterday to hobnob with our former colonial overlords. 

Yes, Taylor Swift was at the Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace, an event benefiting the Centrepoint charity that for some reason involved a "Livin' on a Prayer" sing-a-long with Jon Bon Jovi. Swift and Prince William joined Bon Jovi on stage, and somewhere Kate Middleton, not in attendance, rolled her eyes. (Or she sang along. "Livin' on a Prayer," is pretty damn catchy.) Swift, of course, treated this as she treats everything, with boundless enthusiasm and a lack of awareness of the appropriate dance moves for the moment.

The best parts of the number are when Taylor coaches William, doing a hand movement to single the next line of the song...

When Taylor hand hearts...

When Taylor gets really excited and that excitement is not reciprocated...
