2012 was a huge year for Austin Mahone, and his last live performance of the year was at the B96 Pepsi Jingle Bash!

Showbiz Shelly chatted with him backstage at the show and got the whole backstory on how he joined Taylor Swift on her 2013 tour.

A lot has happened for Austin Mahone in the past 12 months. Austin discussed his success saying, “I got signed onto a huge record label, came out with my first two singles, “Say Somethin'” and “Say You’re Just A Friend,” so it’s just been a great year so far.”

In 2013 Austin will be performing with the one and only Taylor Swift on The Red Tour. Austin recalls the first time he met her. “I met her a year ago in this little cafe. She walked in and I introduced myself. I said, ‘Are you Taylor Swift? She said, ‘Yeah.’ I said ‘I’m Austin Mahone. I do music and I’m on YouTube.’ She was like, ‘Oh, that’s so cool, keep working hard.’ Now, a year later, I’m going on tour (with her) and it’s so crazy how it all came about.”

How did Austin go from meeting Taylor to touring with her? Austin shared, “I wanted to do a song with her. She was like forget the song; let’s go on tour.” Austin and Taylor will be performing live at Chicago’s Soldier Field along with Ed Sheeran on Saturday, August 10th at Chicago’s Soldier Field.
