Todrick Hall Slays Taylor Swift's Discography in 5 Minutes

He's managed to perform five Beyoncé albums in four minutes and a whole slew of Disney songs. For his next challenge, Todrick Hall takes on Taylor Swift.

The singer and star of his new eponymous MTV series debuted a five-minute clip in which he covers the country-turned-pop star's biggest hits, many of them from new album 1989.

You know the drill by now: Hall has recorded himself four times singing four different parts of the medley, and they're spliced side by side for the final cut. There's harmonizing, flat-out belting and even seamless choreography.

What's the highlight? The throwback to "You Belong with Me," obviously.

Hall is the third artist to do a high profile cover of tracks from 1989 recently; on Sunday, Ryan Adams released his hotly anticipated 1989 cover album (stream it here!), while Father John Misty recorded covers of Adams' covers. So that's where we're at right now.
