News flash: Taylor Swift is a natural comedianne. The 19-year old country artist hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend, and demonstrated some pretty impressive acting chops, able to hold her own with SNL regulars Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis. For her opening monologue, Swift debuted “The Monologue Song (La La La),” which took shots at Kanye West and ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas. But it was in sketches where she played the girl with bad braces who’s trapped in a car with her parents, or the “scared straight” prisoner, where she really shined. And did you know that she can also impersonate Shakira in full-on wolf mode?
Swift performed “You Belong With Me” and “Untouchable” on the show, which also found the time to poke fun of Randy Newman, Natalie Merchant, and those Sarah McLachlan dog commercials. Watch some clips below, or check out the full episode at Hulu.com.
