LOS ANGELES – A guy riding a tricycle with a flame-thrower attached and a company of mime clowns helped Taylor Swift open the Grammy Awards.

Swift dressed as the Mad Hatter in white top hat, tails, shorts and tall boots during the surreal version of her hummable hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

The singer pretended to talk to the offending boyfriend on the phone: “I’m busy opening the Grammys and we’re never getting back together.”

Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and electronica star Skrillex were the early leaders with three wins apiece following the Grammy’s pre-telecast awards show. Auerbach’s fellow top nominees Kanye West and Jay-Z picked up two early wins and Britain’s Mumford & Sons have one.
