Taylor Swift Performs ‘Smelly Cat’ With Lisa Kudrow As Justin Timberlake And Selena Gomez Also Join Her On Stage

Okay, so Taylor Swift might have had more than a few famous faces join her on stage during her 1989 World Tour, but the singer well and truly outdid herself last night.

How? By taking her love of cats to a brand new level and bringing Lisa Kudrow, Phoebe Buffay herself, out on stage to give Central Perk classic ‘Smelly Cat’ another outing.



Becoming the second Friends cast member to grace the stage with Swifty, after Matt Le Blanc joined her at the weekend, Lisa arrived guitar in hand to teach her protegé how to do the song justice.

Giving us probably the best duet of all time ever, the two blew the roof off of LA’s Staples Centre, with the audience joining in to belt out all the words.

And we really do mean ALL the words. We think we remember them better than we remember our own parents’ birthdays. Sorry, guys.

Taking to Twitter after the amazing duet, Lisa wrote: “So @taylorswift13 is THE best person I’ve ever met. That was fun. Thanks Taylor.”

We can’t even describe how jealous we are of everyone in that audience.

The song was the highlight of her entire tour (for us, anyway), and the perfect way to end her ‘1989′ run at the Staple Centre.

Have a watch for yourself, and reminsce about Phoebe’s amazing Friends back catalogue.

Taylor and Lisa win, everyone else can go home.

The actress wasn’t the only special guest Swifty brought out on stage though, as she was also joined by Justin Timberlake to perform his smash hit ‘Mirrors’.

According to Vanity Fair, T-Swiz told the crowd: “So Justin hasn’t performed since he became a dad, so I’m just honoured that this is his first performance.”

Not a bad for his first gig back, eh?

These two should definitely record a duet in time for Christmas. Just IMAGINE how incredible that would sound.

Tay’s BFF Selena Gomez also popped on stage for a rendition of ‘Good For You’, after many fans guessed that the two would duet at some point during the tour.

Going for a matchy-matchy thigh-high boots look, the two looked ruddy gorgeous as they belted out Selena’s killer track.

Taking to Instagram to thank Swifty for the opportunity, Selena wrote: “After nearly 8 years of friendship, I just can’t wait to tell our kids we ACTUALLY got to perform in front of thousands of insanely beautiful people together. TWICE!

“I love you Tay. #bestnightEVER #whatISlife.”

‘What IS life’ just about sums this night up.

If, like us, you weren’t quite lucky enough to be there, here’s a quick look at what happened.

We’re loving your work, Taylor.
