“Charming” doesn’t even begin to describe this pint-sized star’s Taylor Swift impersonation, but it’ll do.

Seven-year-old Xia Vigor pulled out all the stops to turn herself into a real-life “Tay-Tay” during her performance on Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids, a Filipino singing and impersonation competition. From Vigor’s classic red lip to her winks and poses, even Swift would be impressed at the British-Filipina performer’s rendition of “You Belong With Me.” 

The judges, a panel of popular Filipino musicians, including Sharon Cuneta and Gary Valenciano, were floored by Vigor’s Swift-ness, calling her “charming” and a “showstopper.”
