Misty Copeland Dancing at the 2019 American Music Awards

Misty Copeland's AMAs Ballet Routine For Taylor Swift Was So on Pointe We Want an Encore

Nope, that was no background dancer performing on stage with Taylor Swift at the American Music Awards, it was acclaimed American ballet dancer Misty Copeland! The inspiring ballet dancer took to the stage on Sunday night during Swift's live performance of her hit song "Lover," and her stunning dance moves made the entire performance so much more magical — just look at the way she owns the stage with her graceful leaps and powerful twirls.

As the first African American woman to be promoted to principal dancer in the American Ballet Theatre's 75-year history, Copeland is a star in her own right, and to see her perform alongside Swift is a moment to be remembered. Watch Copeland's incredible performance here and prepare to be absolutely mesmerised.
