Speaking about her recording breaking album Folklore in the trailer for her upcoming Disney+ special, Taylor said: "There is something about the complete and total uncertainly of life.

"If we are going to have to recalibrate everything then we should start with what we love the most first."

She adds: "It is an album that allows you to feel your feelings and it a product of isolation.

"This could have been a time when I absolutely lost my mind and instead I think, you know, this album was a real flotation device for both of us."

It's not yet know in what format the ceremony will go head due to the ongoing pandemic.
