FILE - In this May 20, 2012 file photo provided by the Las Vegas News Bureau, singer Taylor Swift walks the red carpet for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand on the Las Vegas Strip. Swift is giving $10,000 and concert tickets to a Boston school for the deaf after a prank during an online contest promising an on-campus performance by the Grammy-winning singer. Horace Mann School for the Deaf was disqualified from the contest because many of the votes were from pranksters who thought it would be funny for a school for the deaf to win tickets to a live concert. Instead, Swift and contest sponsors will donate a combined $50,000 to the school, and VH1's Save the Music program will donate $10,000 in musical instruments.
