Taylor Swift was joined by Idina Menzel for a performance of her smash hit, “Let It Go”, in Tampa, FL on October 31.

The pair got into the spirit of the Halloween season, with Swift dressed as Olaf the Snowman from “Frozen” while Menzel portrayed Elsa the Snow Queen.

“Frozen totally happened tonight,” posted Swift. “And 55,000 people sang 'Let it Go' so loudly, it nearly took my breath away.”

Swift’s concert at Raymond James Stadium marked the final date of her North American tour in support of “1989.”

The pop superstar will enjoy a week off before resuming her world tour in Singapore on November 7.

VIDEO: Taylor Swift shares acoustic Out Of The Woods performance

Taylor Swift is sharing a stripped-down performance of her “1989” track, “Out Of The Woods”, as she marks the 1-year anniversary of the album’s release.

The singer delivered the tune during a private 7-song mini-concert at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on September 30 to celebrate the attendance record of the exhibit The Taylor Swift Experience.

“I’m going to play you a song,” introduced Swift, “that I wrote about a relationship that I was in that the number one feeling I felt in the whole relationship was anxiety, because it felt very fragile, it felt very tentative. And it always felt like, ‘Okay what’s the next roadblock? What’s the next thing that’s gonna deter this? How long do we have before this turns into just an awful mess and we break up — is it a month, is it three days?’”

“And so I think a lot of relationships can be very solid and that’s kind of what you hope for — solid and healthy — but that’s not always what you get. And it doesn’t mean that it’s not special and extraordinary just to have a relationship that’s fragile and somehow meaningful in that fragility.”

Swift wraps up the North American leg of her 1989 world tour in Miami on October 31 before heading to the Far East for shows next month in Singapore, China and Australia.

VIDEO: Watch complete Kid’s Choice Awards show

There was a whole lot of big fun at the 25th annual Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards on Saturday.

Hosted by 10-time KCA winner Will Smith, the awards were broadcast from the Galen Center at USC in Los Angeles where kids’ top choices in television, movies, music and sports were revealed through a flying blimp, silver robot and sword swallower.

Smith made an aerial entrance onto the venue by parachuting down from the official KCA blimp, a 246-foot orange airship situated above the arena. After rappelling to the stage and deactivating a booby trap set by a mysterious Creepy Voice determined to stop the show, Smith kicked off the silver anniversary celebration with a performance of “Can U Handle This” and balloons filled with confetti and slime.

Mega-stars including Katy Perry, Taylor Lautner, Big Time Rush, Selena Gomez, Kristen Stewart, LMFAO and Justin Bieber reigned as this year’s favourites.

First Lady Michelle Obama made her first-ever appearance at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards, presenting Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Taylor Swift with this year’s The Big Help Award in recognition of her extensive philanthropic endeavours, including her work with tornado and flood survivors in the United States. The Big Help Award recognizes individuals who take actions to better the world and whose significant impact on their community has inspired kids to do the same.

Kids paid tribute to their favorites by casting over 220 million votes throughout the month of March in 20 categories.
