Taylor Swift Covers Britney Spears’ ‘Lucky’
If you’re familiar with Taylor Swift‘s tendency to perform cover songs by local artists, you might have seen this one coming. Last night, Swift took her Speak Now Tour to Louisiana, and that meant it was her chance to honor one of the state’s most famous pop music exports, Britney Spears, with a cover of Brit’s ‘Lucky.’
Swift performed at the CenturyTel Center and played ‘Lucky’ during her solo acoustic portion of the set. Her fans joined in as Taylor sang the chorus from the 2000 hit song by Spears, who grew up in Kentwood, La.: “She’s so lucky, she’s a star / But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart / Thinking, if there’s nothing missing in my life / Then why do these tears come at night?”
With a lot of pop singers sticking to the same setlist night in and night out, we give Taylor credit for switching things up and always keeping her fans guessing.
The crowd energy for the Britney cover didn’t seem as high as when Swift covered Eminem in Detroit or Justin Bieber in Toronto. But that could be because the only video we have is a low-quality cell phone clip. Check it out below.
