Taylor Swift Performs With Selena Gomez, Goo Goo Dolls, James Taylor in NYC (VIDEO)
Taylor Swift recently celebrated the conclusion of her hugely successful Speak Now World Tour with two sold-out shows at New York City's Madison Square Garden, continuing the tradition of inviting fellow friends and hometown musicians onstage for once-in-a-lifetime performances.
Fans of the 'Sparks Fly' singer were treated to performances by the legendary James Taylor at last night's (Nov. 22) finale. "This song is probably one of the most fantastic, amazing songs I ever heard in my life," Taylor told the crowd before James joined her onstage. "It's called 'Fire and Rain' by James Taylor."
Taylor revealed to the crowd that she was actually named after the famed musician before launching into the pop classic, as well as a performance of her own 'Fifteen.' The singer also invited BFF Selena Gomez to the stage, sharing a special moment with Justin Bieber's girlfriend while performing the Disney star's pop hit 'Who Says.'
Taylor invited Johnny Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls onstage during the first of the two shows, performing the pop/rock band's massive hit, 'Iris.' Immediately following Monday's (Nov. 21) concert, the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year took to her official Twitter account to share her elation over the surreal experience.
"Last night, Madison Square Garden was lit up like a Christmas tree - And we got to play 'Iris' with Johnny Rzeznik from @googoodolls! Crazy!," Taylor tweeted.
Fans who weren't able to catch the singer's stage show extravaganza can purchase the live Speak Now world tour CD/DVD combo pack, which features 17 songs from Taylor's live shows and 75 minutes of music with additional bonus content. The singer recently released a similar package for her 2010 Fearless headlining tour.
