Taylor Swift Turns Fan Girl During Keith Urban Duet in Toronto for '1989' Tour [WATCH]
Taylor Swift had a surprise guest take the stage with her at a show for her 1989 album tour in Toronto, Canada last night (Oct. 2). Her duet partner was none other than country star Keith Urban. The duo performed two of his songs, latest hit "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16" and older tune "Somebody Like You" in front of 45,000 fans. Swift went a little fan girl for him as well.
According to Rolling Stone, Swift said as Urban came out onstage, "Someone absolutely incredible is about to come out on the stage. This is someone who has sold 20 million records. This is someone who, more importantly, is an amazing human being. I actually opened up for his tour years ago. He's been so wonderful to me. He's one of the most talented people who's ever been born. Toronto, Keith Urban is here to see you." "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16" just saw the Australian country star get his 19th number one hit in the United States in a long-spanning, wildly successful career.
The Daily Mail reported that the pop star had given a hint to the audience earlier that day by posting a shot of them at sound check. It was a spirited performance, with Swift clad in a black leather jumpsuit as she did catwalk moves across the stage. Urban was also completely in black and wailed on his guitar. Swift also took a short turn grinding the axe.
It marked a special moment for Swift, who opened for Keith Urban early on in her career, before she was a superstar. According to Rolling Stone, she seemed to be a huge fan during their performance onstage. It was reported that she seemed to be more of a hype woman than anything else and truly let Urban take center stage for the entirety of their duet.
