Taylor Swift has been busy with her 'Speak Now' tour. And one thing that she has done to add some spice to her concerts is to pay homage to hometown music in each city she visits, covering hits by star artists from the area.

An unexpected moment at Taylor Swift's show in Van Andel Arena, Grand Rapids, Michigan took place on Thursday, July 28, 2011. She sang foul-mouthed rapper Eminem's "Lose Yourself", and the crowd undeniably enjoyed it. Eminem is from Detroit, the largest city in Michigan, followed by Grand Rapids. Check out the videos above.

Swift followed "Lose Yourself" with "Smile" by Uncle Kracker, then one of her hit singles "You Belong With Me". She also sang a mashup of "Fearless", "I'm Yours" and "Hey Soul Sister".

A few trivias on her: Swift won the award for Best Female Video at the 2009 Video Music Awards. She also won the 'Entertainer of the Year' award at the 46th American Country Music Awards. Her greatest music influence is Shaina Twain. Other influences are LeAnn Rimes, Tina Turner, Dolly Parton and her grandmother, who is an opera singer.
