Moral of the story: Meh. It could have been so much better.

We love that Kendrick Lamar loves Taylor Swift and that she loves him back. But we already knew that. Give us some better audio and even a little snippet of him actually singing the song and we could have been sold. Unfortunately, this one fell short. Twitter fail.

Now, back to the election coverage, thank you very much.
