Diamond White, Former Teen Contestant From 'X Factor USA,' Covers Taylor Swift's 'I Knew You Were Trouble' And 'Love Story' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Original Songs: "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "Love Story" by Taylor Swift.

Cover Artist: Diamond White, one of our favorite former "X Factor USA" teen contestants.

How It's Different: Diamond slowed the dubstep-ready "I Knew You Were Trouble" waaaay down for a softer, piano-driven melody, and the transition into one of T-Swift's older hits, "Love Story," actually feels organic -- even though the two songs have very different vibes.

Why We Love It: Despite how over-covered "IKYWT" seems to be on YouTube these days, the fact that she made it into a fun mashup helps it feel fresh. Also, Diamond's voice is simply lovely. It's hard to believe she's only 14 years-old.

Better than the Original? We're #TeamTaylor. For life.
