Taylor Swift Covers Eminem in Concert, Audience Loses It

Young Taylor Swift has just strummed a rare beast of a hip-hop-to-country crossover… and a cuddly one, too! Performing in Grand Rapids, Mich., recently, T-Swizzle launched into a cover of Eminem‘s ‘Lose Yourself,’ adding a bit of guitar twang and teenage-ish angst to the Michigan native’s hit. The crowd went wild as a result.

This was not the first time Taylor Swift lent her pipes to hip-hop, rapping a few lines from her beloved Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Super Bass‘ for Nashville’s 107.5 The River radio station, not to mention her pre-taped all-out ‘Thug Story’ video with T-Pain for CMT Music Awards. “I’m so gangster you can find me baking cookies at night,” she rapped. “You out clubbin’ but I just made caramel delights!”

All self-parodying kitsch aside, could T-Swizzle reasonably give the hip-hop game a try? Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’ lyrics aren’t MC-exclusive and Swift’s delivery of “this opportunity comes once in a life time” feels pretty heartfelt … but did she pull it off?
