Don't let the cowboy boots fool you.

Taylor Swift stepped out of her pop-country niche at her Atlanta show Sunday night for a duet with rapper T.I., 31, to his 2008 hit, "Live Your Life."

Rocking black boots and a sparkly LBD, Swift, 21, performed the part of the hip-hop anthem originally sung by Rihanna.

She later gushed on Twitter about the "unreal" performance. "LOUDEST screams from the crowd, 14,000 people, hands in the air," she said.

T.I. (full name: Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr.) – who was released from prison in August – wasn't Swift's only surprise guest in Atlanta. At a show the night before, the Grammy winner welcomed Usher to the stage for a duet of his 2004 hit single, "Yeah!"

Swift has also shared the stage with stars such as Justin Bieber, former John Mayer and Nicki Minaj.
