Taylor Sheesh, the Filipino Taylor Swift drag queen, wakes up ‘Good Morning America’
The Philippines, despite pretty much meeting all possible criteria to be a certified Taylor Nation, has unfortunately been reeling from its exclusion from the “Eras Tour.”
While Filipino Swifties found their luck getting tickets from the only Asian stops, Singapore and Japan, others have been coping in different ways. You know, using interactive music add-ons—or dropping everything (now) to go to concert-like mall shows with Taylor Sheesh as the main act.
From Rolling Stone to Washington Post, today’s talk-of-the-town Taylor Swift drag queen has been making headlines. Taylor Sheesh, who has been going on her own kind of “Eras Tour” across Philippine cities and provinces, made quite an interesting stop recently: “Good Morning America.”
In an episode published on Sept. 3, the 28-year-old performer (virtually) graced New York-based ABC News-produced morning television program “Good Morning America” as one of their guests.
The report highlighted Taylor Sheesh’s popularity and loaded mall shows, as Filipinos have been channeling their passion for Swift while watching and singing along with the clever impersonator, from smash hit “Love Story (Taylor’s Version)” to sentimental favorite “August.”
About Taylor Sheesh
Sheesh, whose real name is Mac Coronel, was described as someone who’s “been doing drag since 2017, but has been a Swiftie even longer”—since 2009, to be exact. In the exclusive interview, the performer even admitted that the swift change into different costumes is the most difficult part of her performances. No wonder, her outfits are meticulously prepared and really bow down to the superstar’s tour wardrobe.

Sheesh also mentioned that her setlist favorites—mostly because of the massive “earthquake-like” reaction from the audience—include “You Belong With Me,” “Love Story,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and “Cruel Summer.”
Sheesh is set to catch the “Eras Tour” in Singapore, pushing supporters online to vouch for a meet-up between the two passionate performers. “Good Morning America” anchors complimented the creativity put into the details of the drag queen’s craft. That combined with drive and hard work? That’s so Taylor Swift-coded.
