Taylor Swift Covers Justin Timberlake in Memphis

Taylor Swift covered the Justin Timberlake breakup ballad ‘Cry Me a River’ at her Memphis concert at the FedExForum on Sunday night.

Performed during the solo acoustic portion of the set, the song was hard to spot at first, but it sounded more familiar when Swift reached the pre-chorus, “You don’t have to say what you did / I already know, I found out from him.”

Swift has been covering songs by local artists throughout her Speak Now Tour, and ‘Cry Me a River’ was the logical Justin Timberlake song choice. The fans reacted with polite applause to the JT cover but didn’t go nuts they way they did when Taylor played Eminem in Detroit or Justin Bieber in Toronto.

Perhaps that was because ‘Cry Me a River’ is a slow song. But Swift didn’t have a ton of choices when it came to covering Timberlake. It’s not like she would’ve considered playing the more-suggestive ‘SexyBack’ or ‘Rock Your Body,’ though either would have been an awesome sight!

The fan-filmed footage is distant and doesn’t allow for a view of the stage, but the audio quality is good. Check it out below.
