Taylor Swift’s habit of bringing her famous friends onstage during the 1989 tour has become almost as famous as the album itself, and last night she topped herself yet again. For the third night of the LA portion of her tour, she brought out Alanis Morissette to perform her iconic break up anthem “You Oughta Know.” (More on the historical importance of that song can be found here). It’s fairly easy to imagine Morissette was a huge influence on Swift, given her own trove of fuck-off ballads. Morissette was far and away the highlight, but true to form, Swift didn’t only bring out only one guest. She also paraded Ellen DeGeneres around the stage during “Style” and brought out Natalie Maines to do “Goodbye Earl.” Watch the full video and some the clips via Instagram below.
Here’s Taylor and Ellen during “Style”:
