Smelly Cat Video

Friends Video: Lisa Kudrow Revives Phoebe's 'Smelly Cat' (With a Little Help From Taylor Swift)

Taylor Swift saved her best special guest for last.

The pop superstar closed out the Los Angeles leg of her MVP-laden “1989” world tour on Wednesday with a surprise for Friends fans: a rare appearance by an up-and-coming singer who previously “only played in coffee houses”  — Phoebe Buffay (AKA Lisa Kudrow).

Swift and Kudrow then proceeded to perform a duet of Phoebe’s signature track, “Smelly Cat.” And, for 10 minutes at least, everything was right with the world.

Scroll down to watch some snippets of the performance (thanks social media!).

    I went on opening night at Staples Center and feel jipped.. haha we got Ryan Tedder and Kobe Bryant.
    I think Justin Timberlake, Lisa Kudrow, and Selena Gomez trump that!
