Taylor Swift duets with Usher, T.I. during all-star sweep through Atlanta: Watch here

It’s Monday, which means it’s time once again to play Who Showed Up At Taylor Swift’s Tour Stop Over The Weekend?

Swift’s indefatigable Speak Now tour made its way to Atlanta over the weekend, and showcased visits from not one but two local superstars.

On Saturday night, Swift welcomed Usher to the Speak Now stage, and the two of them ran through his massive 2004 single “Yeah.”

Sadly, Swift did not take on the Lil Jon part (or the Ludacris verse), opting instead to sing along with Mr. Raymond in the chorus. Naturally, the ATL fans in attendance went ape, including Usher’s two sons, who ran up on stage at the conclusion of the duet.

On Sunday, Swift brought out another member of Atlanta’s musical royalty: T.I. The rapper (who had only been tasting free air for a few days thanks to his release from prison) tag-teamed with Swift on “Live Your Life,” with Taylor filling in for Rihanna.

Sunday’s performance was quite a bit more theatrical, as Swift started out by crooning the song’s chorus (even adding Rihanna’s island lilt on the word “haters”), then calling for T.I., who began rapping from backstage only to make his way down the dramatic, sparkly staircase that serves as the centerpiece of Swift’s Speak Now set.

Follow the jump for shaky cell phone video of each performance:

Remember that piece of trivia for the future: After T.I. was released from prison in 2011, the first live appearance he made was with Taylor Swift.

We know Swift can rap, and she clearly has an affinity for rhymers and singers from the Dirty South. Can a role as the Eve to Justin Bieber‘s inevitable Ruff Ryders-esque crew be far behind? Probably not, actually, but it’s fun to dream.

    If you’re gonna mention Eve, why not mention she dropped a smokin’ new DANCE single “Get Em” on producer/DJ Wolfgang (NO affiliation with Odd Future thank god) Gartner’s brilliant new disc “Weekend In America” (How even more fitting for this piece) ? The song with the fog horn is one of the best original dance tunes i’ve heard all year and so not what you’d expect from Eve !

    Unrelated but indefatigable? That’s a new word. Anyways, what are the chances of Taylor calling Kanye West for a duet?

  • ^

    Her music and singing are abyssmal but I have to admit she’s pretty hot. That’s what the mute button is for.

    Before the year ends, I must attend a Taylor Swift concert. All reviews from critics as well as friends who went were amazed and highly entertained by her show.

    Gotta get on them Dallas Stadium tickets.

    Taylor is a true entertainer. I never hear complaints from people, who see her in concert.

    WTF? What am i missing? She did rap the Ludacris part. Did you even bother to listen before writing this?

    Taylor dances like a dork…which makes her more adorable. She’s really enjoying herself on stage with these various artists. Great to see these rappers hanging out at her show, who would have thought…

  • yes

    Taylor Swift is a boss. Period. I love her.

  • jen

    She is undeniably unmatchable. A lot of artists today are doing the same thing and I’m getting sick of it! Taylor is a breath of fresh air. She’s different in a great way and there’s no one like her.

  • omg
