In 2016, Taylor Swift broke her long-established streak of releasing an album every other year and stayed out of the spotlight, save for a photographer-friendly walk along the rocks with Tom Hiddleston and some quick appearances. Her absence meant that the inevitable — new Taylor Swifts popping up in every corner of the world, ready to take her crown — would eventually happen. And now it has.
On a recent episode of the Philippine television show Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids, where contestants impersonate popular singers and perform their notable songs, 7-year-old Xia Vigor arrived onstage dressed as marching band–ready Taylor from the 2008 "You Belong With Me" video and belted out the tune with some impressive choreography to match.
There's a bit of a strange moment after the first chorus where she dramatically whips off the band cap and unveils a sparkly gown under the uniform, à la Taylor today. But I guess that kind of vigor is what it takes to make it in the preadolescent realm of celebrity impersonation these days.
