The best surprise guests on Taylor Swift's Reputation tour, ranked by fans who either saw these shows live or really, really wish they had. Taylor, touring on the back of her 2017 album of the same name, loves to bring pals on stage to surprise the crowds. The 1989 tour saw lots of random guests (like the US Women's Soccer Team, Ellen, and Lisa Kudrow), but the Reputation tour featured Taylor Swift's famous musical friends, singing many of their own hits alongside the best songs on Reputation. Whether you melted into the floor of the Rose Bowl with your pals when Selena Gomez came out to sing "Hands to Myself," or watched the YouTube videos of Taylor and Hayley Kiyoko over and over again, vote up the surprise guest + Taylor performances that were the all around best and most enjoyable to watch.
