If you keep finding yourself singing “Shake It Off” quietly (or loudly) to yourself at weird times, you’re definitely not alone. It seems nobody can get Taylor Swift’s ultra-catchy hit out of their heads — and that includes a whole bunch of celebrities.
And so, to honor the recent TIME cover star, here’s a look at some of those celebrities proudly belting the unshakeable hit. Some of these people are professional singers performing polished covers, others are just amateur vocalists proudly showing their love for Tay-Tay.
In an appearance on ABC’s Popcorn with Peter Travers, the actor was asked what music has been playing in his head. He responded without missing a beat.
At a concert in Buffalo, N.Y., Clarkson treated fans to a soulful, gospel version of the song.
In a radio interview with The Fader, the rapper — whose respect and admiration for Swift has been documented — launched into an impromptu “Shake It Off” sing-along. (He later free-styled over the song’s beat.)
Barack Obama (kind of)
No, the President of the United States didn’t actually sing “Shake It Off,” but it sounds like he did thanks to some clever editing by the folks at The Tonight Show.
She’s best known for her hit “All About That Bass,” but this time, Trainor grabbed a ukelele and performed a mellow but still totally catchy cover.
Kelly Ripa didn’t actually sing, but she did channel Swift and recreate the music video with an astonishing attention to detail. A bunch of other celebrities — including Anderson Cooper, Sofia Vergara, Emma Stone and even Tay herself — make appearances in the spoof video.
Taylor Swift herself
