If anyone knows how to get a crowd to come alive, it’s Phoebe Buffay. And that’s exactly what happened on August 26 when Taylor Swift brought out Lisa Kudrow to sing the one and only, ‘Smelly Cat.’ Watch it right here!
Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, we understand . . . but Lisa Kudrow? Taylor Swift literally hit the jackpot during her last 1989 show at the Staples Center when she brought out her second Friends star, the amazing Phoebe Buffay. The best part was they not only sang “Smelly Cat,” but Lisa stopped her midway through to tell her to get more into it! Tell her, girl!

“They won’t take you to the vet; you’re obviously not their favorite pet,” Taylor sang on stage, playing the guitar next to Lisa, who also was strumming along. However, after the lines, Lisa stopped her. “That was good, but um, you have to really feel the lyrics,” Lisa told her. So Taylor asked, “Like how?” To that, we got to hear Lisa sing that iconic verse.
Yes, yes, yes! They then went on to harmonize perfectly through the song and the crowd — understandably so — went crazy. It’s clear that Taylor is a Friends fan! She brought out Matt LeBlanc, AKA Joey Tribbiani on Aug. 29, so it’s clear that there’s some sort of trend going on here, and we’re really happy about it.
Taylor’s Crazy Night
Fans got quite the concert if they went to the Staples center on Wednesday night. Selena brought out one of her favorite artists, Justin Timberlake, for his first performance since becoming a dad! They absolutely nailed it, singing his song, “Mirrors.” But Taylor didn’t stop there. After a year of bringing out so many huge stars, she finally brought out her BFF, Selena. We knew the performance was coming, but it was much better than we could ever imagine! Selena and Taylor sang Sel’s song “Good For You,” and even though A$AP Rocky wasn’t there, we were more than impressed.
Are you loving this as much as we are, HollywoodLifers? And more importantly, should Taylor add “Smelly Cat” to her regular set list? My vote is YES.
