Ryan Adams Continues His Transformation Into Bubblegum Pop Star With Taylor Swift Cover On Kimmel

Hey, here's a billion dollar idea, do a cover of Taylor Swift's untameable 1989 album! Kudos Ryan Adams, you've beat us to it. Kudos. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Adams graced, no, "grunged" the audience with his rendition of Swift's "Welcome To New York." Adams turns pop-chart sweepers into humble rock tunes. Even when Adams recreates Swift, she still shines through: "I can dance to the bee-ee-ee-eat," a modulation that compliments Adams, but is truly a musical Swift-ism, that as I said, shines through.

So who does it better: the fabulous blonde, or the L train riding rocker look-alikes? Kidding, of course. You can't take away anything from either performance. But what you can do is put on your dancing shoes when you hear Swift welcome us to the brightly lighted Big Apple, and your beat up concert Vans for Adams' "walk two blocks, and make a left" invitation to what we call our city.
