On Taylor Swift’s current neverending RED arena tour, she regularly brings out artists who she’s a fan of, so she can dork out in front of the hordes of teenagers who are dorking out in front of her; it’s, to my mind, a deeply endearing tendency. That ever-expanding list of artists is a wide and kinda-weird one: Carly Simon, T.I., Jimmy Eat World frontman Jim Adkins. And last night at L.A.’s Staples Center, she introduced Tegan And Sara, who sang “Closer” with Taylor. The wave of kid-screams when Taylor yells their name is the sort of thing that might make you feel good about the future of the world. Two things to pay attention to: Taylor’s dancing, which is absurd, and the fact that Taylor is about a foot and a half taller than either Tegan or Sara, which is visually interesting. Watch the fan-made video below.

If we all visualize a universe in which Taylor brings Kathleen Hanna out onstage, maybe we can make it happen.

  1. Why am I watching this? Taylor Swift? Terrible audio. Fuck my life and fuck you Stereogum.

  2. I don’t get it, it’s not like they can troll Boiler Room like this.

  3. When she was talking I kept hoping Kanye would interrupt!

  4. Please stop posting cell phone concert videos. You’re encouraging these assholes to do this at concerts and no one wants to see the shitty video and audio results.
