The Show Couldn't Go On For Taylor Swift and Fergie in Central Park

Jun 10 2011 - 10:36am

Taylor Swift [1] joined Fergie [2] and the Black Eyed Peas yesterday for what was supposed to be an all-star concert in NYC's Central Park. The artists arrived ready to rock out on behalf of the Robin Hood Foundation, an antipoverty organization, but rain and lightning forced the show's cancellation [3] before Taylor and the Black Eyed Peas could even take the stage. The Black Eyed Peas made the best of the situation and put on a mini-performance backstage with LL Cool J and Natasha Bedingfield. Hayden Panettiere [4] and Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez managed to sneak in, though just as friends since she's reportedly dating his teammate Scotty McKnight. Taylor tweeted her disappointment, writing, "I was like 'I get to sing with Fergie in NYC?!' and then there was rain and lightning, and they're like 'it's cancelled' and I was like [sad face]." Despite her frustration over the weather, the week wasn't a total downer for Taylor as she took home the video of the year honor at Wednesday's CMT Awards. Taylor wasn't able to accept the accolade in person, but she did pretape a Thelma and Louise spoof with Shania Twain [5] for the broadcast.
