Ranking Taylor Swift's Most Random '1989' Tour Guests, From Matt LeBlanc To Ellen DeGeneres
If you've been keeping up with Taylor Swift's 1989 tour so far, you know that when you go to a show on the tour, you're not just seeing Taylor Swift — you're seeing all her friends, too. Surprising her concertgoers with celebrity guests has been Swift's thing for most of her career, but after the year she's had, she's never had an easier time getting some seriously impressive celebs on stage with her... but some of them make a lot more sense than others. Like the musical guests. It's not that crazy when Fifth Harmony appears on stage to perform a single, but when Julia Roberts walks out? That's where it gets a little confusing. Not that I'm complaining, of course. Seeing all of these celebrity guests cropping up night after night has me really pumped for what could happen when Swift rolls into my city later this fall. But so many of Swift's 1989 tour guests have been super random, and it's hard to ignore.
Here's a ranking of all of Swift's most unexpected tour guests — musical acts not included — from the least random to most. What are the chances that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be showing up soon? My fingers are crossed.
Not all that weird, considering the fact that not only is Swift's cat, Olivia, named after Hargitay's SVU character, but she also starred in Bad Blood. Still a little unexpected to see her on stage with Swift, though.
Swift and Dunham have been besties for awhile now (and, like Hargitay, she also starred in Bad Blood), so the idea that Swift would invite her on stage like she did many of the other members of her posse, like Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne, isn't too odd. I'm just disappointed it didn't happen at my show!
There were rumors for a long time that Jenner and Swift didn't get along, but I'm glad they're friends now — at least, good enough friends that she ended up on Swift's runway during "Style." Do you think they swapped Harry Styles stories after the concert? Please don't ruin this for me.
The US Women's Soccer Team
After they won the Women's World Cup in July, it was only natural that Swift would invite them on stage to celebrate, right? It almost makes me want to play sports. This would be more random if they hadn't just won something so huge, though, and it's awesome that Swift decided to honor them that way.
DeGeneres and Swift are BFFs, but Swift might want to think twice about inviting her on stage again being that she pretty much stole the show in her sparkly outfit. DeGeneres also made an appearance during Swift's Speak Now tour to sing "Our Song" but in a way less sparkly way.
Matt LeBlanc & Chris Rock
This would have been SO RANDOM if Swift wasn't outspoken about being such a huge fan of Friends.It would have been better if he'd sung Joey's song about hand twins, though. Chris Rock, though? Weird.
Julia Roberts & Joan Baez
We all love Julia Roberts, but how did she end up on Swift's stage? I bet there's a story there.
Again, we all love Orange is The New Black, but how did Aduba end up on Swift's stage twice so far this tour? I'm not going to deny that their performance of "White Horse" was the best, though.
Swift, you never fail to impress/confuse me... and I'm sure there will be even more random guest as the tour continues. We still have a few more months to go, and anything is possible!
