  1. 1

    Rachel Platten

    We knew Taylor Swift loves Rachel Platten’s "Fight Song" since she brought her out on tour to sing it, but Swift really gave the country starlet her full stamp of approval when she said she was playing Platten’s new single "Stand By You" on repeat.

  2. 2

    Alessia Cara

    Alessia Cara first burst onto the Taylor Swift scene when she did an amazing cover of Swift’s "Bad Blood" that Swift called "AMAZING." But Swift couldn’t get enough of the 19-year-old singer-songwriter’s "Four Pink Walls" EP, declaring that her heart belonged to Cara after listening to it.

  3. 3

    Troye Sivan

    YouTube (and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine") star Troye Sivan became a bonafide pop artist with his single "Happy Little Pill," but it was Swift calling his debut EP "WILD" "STUNNING" and "#EPgoals" that sent him into a series of incoherent and excited tweets.

  4. 4


    Taylor showed her love for Garrett Borns aka BØRNS by posting an Instagram calling the bright, fun track "Electric Love" an "instant classic."

  5. 5

    Selena Gomez

    Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift aren’t just BFFs. They’re also each other’s biggest fans. So it’s no surprise that Swift didn’t hesitate to recommend Gomez’s new single "Good For You" and praise it as her favorite thing Gomez has ever done.

  6. 6

    Fifth Harmony

    Before she invited them to the "1989" tour stage, Swift lost ALL her chill with Fifth Harmony member (and friend) Camila Cabello when they heard the girl group’s summer hit "Worth It" on the radio.

  7. 7

    Shawn Mendes

    Vine star turned teen heartthrob Shawn Mendes isn’t just one of Swift’s opening acts, he’s also one of the artists whose album she loves seeing at #1 on iTunes.

  8. 8

    Hey Violet

    Rock band Hey Violet covered Swift’s "Blank Space" and she tweeted out the rockin’ video of it live from LA saying "I. Love. This."

  9. 9

    Ellie Goulding

    Goulding is another one of Taylor’s squad members who she is a BIG fan of—so much so that she isn’t embarrassed by confessing that she hardcore jams out to "Love Me Like You Do" when it’s on the radio.

  10. 10

    Kendrick Lamar

    It’s no secret Taylor is a HUGE fan of Kendrick Lamar (so much so she asked him to remix "Bad Blood" with her). But she definitely couldn’t contain her excitement when "To Pimp A Butterfly" dropped saying "KENDRICK PUT HIS ALBUM OUT EARLY. NO ONE TOUCH ME."

  11. 11

    The 1975

    Taylor is such a big fan of The 1975 she made sure to go to their concert with her gal pals (and other fave artists) Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez and take an adorable video of her singing along to "The City" with Gomez.

  12. 12

    Nick Jonas

    Nick Jonas and Taylor Swift have been friends and fans of each other’s work since his Jonas Brothers days, but it was Jonas’ track "Santa Barbara" off of his latest record that Swift connected with. She tweeted that "it’s like a combo of Bon Iver and the way Christmas time should feel."

  13. 13

    Louisa Wendorff

    The Internet and Swift were both "OBSESSED" with this singer-songwriter’s seamless mash-up of "Blank Space" and "Style."

  14. 14

    Chemical Brothers feat. Lorde and Miguel

    Taylor was totally digging the Chemical Brothers’ gritty banger from the Lorde-curated "Mockingjay" soundtrack—and we don’t blame her.

  15. 15

    Iggy Azalea

    Swift couldn’t help but shake it off to Azalea’s "Black Widow" when she was on air with Ryan Secret and later tweeted that "Iggy Azalea is life."

  16. 16

    Ed Sheeran

    Taylor Swift is Ed Sheeran’s friend, collaborator and No. 1 fan. She called his VMA-nominated "Thinking Out Loud" music video a "masterpiece" when it dropped.

  17. 17

    Dashboard Confessional

    Like many 20-somethings Swift was really into Dashboard Confessional as a teen, so much so that she even invited lead singer Chris Carrabba to her best friend Abigail’s birthday to lead a rousing sing-along of "Hands Down."

  18. 18

    Vance Joy

    Swift has shown her love for Vance Joy by covering his hit "Riptide," bringing him on tour as her opening act and taking to Twitter to declare that his cover of her song "I Know Places" is her favorite "1989" cover.

  19. 19

    Kelly Clarkson

    It was only a matter of time during Kelly Clarkson’s summer of amazing covers that she would sing a Taylor Swift song, and when she finally covered "Blank Space" Swift was so impressed all she could say was "YES."

  20. 20

    Jesse Will

    Swift shared singer-songwriter Jesse Will’s haunting cover of "Shake It Off" saying her "favorite covers are the ones where the artist has made it their own, changing the way the song makes you feel" and Will did exactly that.

  21. 21

    Miranda Sings & Tori Kelly

    Swift was totally in on the joke and told her followers to "treat your ears to the vocal event of the year" when YouTube star Miranda Sings collaborated with the Tori Kelly for an equal parts amazing and hilarious cover of "Bad Blood."
