    Taylor Swift avoids eye contact with Harry Styles

    Taylor Swift avoided making eye contact with Harry Styles at the BRIT Awards.

    The 23-year-old singer performed 'I Knew You Were Trouble' at the ceremony - held at London's The O2 venue last night (20.02.13) - and security were on high alert to ensure the blonde beauty didn't bump into or even look at her ex-boyfriend, whose band One Direction performed their new charity single 'One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)'.

    A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Taylor and her people passed Harry backstage and a security guard barked, 'Look left!' so there was no eye contact.''

    Harry - who split from Taylor after two months of dating over New Year - was the butt of BRITs host James Corden's jokes throughout the evening, with him making references to the 19-year-old lothario's interest in older women.

    James quipped: ''Sharon Osbourne's here, Annie Lennox is here. So tell me [Harry], who've you got your eye on, then?''

    Sharon, 60, also joined in when she presented an award, joking: ''Where is that little Harry Potter boy? Has he got his little magic stick with him tonight? That's his willy.''

    Later in the evening at the Sony Music after party - held in association with Belvedere vodka - Harry said he had enjoyed his ex-girlfriend's performance, telling website MailOnline: ''I thought her performance was really good, she looked great.''

    One Direction - also including Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik - took home the BRITs Global Success Award at the event.
