Ryan Seacrest apparently can be quite the gentleman when it comes to a damsel in distress — or a singer freezing her butt off, as the case may be.

Anyone watching Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve with Ryan Seacrest Wednesday night was probably wondering why in the world Taylor Swift decided to don such a skimpy outfit during her appearance on stage at the Times Square New Year's Eve celebration.

In fact, the world gasped when she removed whatever protection she may have had from the cold — a lightweight, if-you-can-call-it-a-jacket — in the middle of her song.

Although she managed to kill her set and didn't appear in the least bit chilly while performing, the teeth-chattering singer began to question her wardrobe choice after her set.

As the two were chatting, Swift remarked that she wasn't a happy camper in her midriff-revealing tank top, slacks and silver jacket.

"I'm freezing," said the visibly trembling singer. "I really didn't think this through."

Cue in her knight.

Seacrest took off his jacket and wrapped it around the shoulders of the 25-year-old Shake It Off singer, who was beginning to turn various shades of blue in the cold.

Ah, good job Ryan. Way to save the day.
