A Trail woman is ecstatic that she has been featured on rapper Eminem’s social media after she showed off her impressive lip-syncing skills for his Godzilla challenge.

The artist wanted to see how fast his fans could rap, so he announced his #GozillaChallenge on social media, asking his audience to submit their best “Godzilla” raps.

His latest song can be heard on his latest album Music to Be Murdered By and features the late Juice WRLD.

Kelsey Iachetta was out for dinner when she heard the news that she was a runner up in the contest. Her video was shown on Eminem’s social media and website. The winner was announced March 18.

“I couldn’t even hold my phone. I was shaking, I was sweating, I was freaking out I was so excited,” she said.

From a young age, she’s been an Eminem fan. Iachetta remembers rapping to Eminem’s “Superman,” on a karaoke machine.

Iachetta and her friend Tayla Scott would often rap Eminem songs growing up, she said, and she would create rap videos for fun.

She spent a few days learning the words and then applying them to the speed of the song.

“It took a while, it was really hard,” she said. “I thought well, I should prove it to myself that I can actually do this one.”

Iachetta has also been mentioned in an online BillBoard poll, where votes are being tallied for the best runner up.

“(Eminem has) seen my face, we’re best friends now,” she joked.

She described the situation as being "very weird."
