Special guest duets have become a recent fixture of Taylor Swift’s “Red” tour, and music’s biggest superstar continued that trend on Friday’s show in Los Angeles.
“It’s not really a tradition I’m willing to stop,” said Swift of the surprise duet concept just prior to introducing UK pop standout Ellie Goulding as her latest special guest.
Following an introduction rich on compliments, Swift turned her screaming audience’s attention to the arriving Goulding, who commenced a performance of “Anything Could Happen.”
Swift eventually joined in on the song, turning one of Goulding’s signature songs into a duet for the audience, estimated at 15,000.
“Still blown away by how incredible the @taylorswift13 show is and how lucky I feel to have been a part of that last night,” wrote Goulding on Twitter Saturday.
