Just when it seemed like Taylor Swift couldn’t possibly find another awesome celebrity guest to grace the 1989 world tour stage, she brought out two Emmy winners, a Grammy recipient and a Golden Globe victor – all in one night!

For the second evening of her five-show stint at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, Swift performed with Mary J. Blige and Orange is the New Black‘s Uzo Aduba.

Blige and Swift sang the R&B diva’s hits “Doubt” and “Family Affair” to a screaming, sold-out crowd.

“‘Cause we’re celebrating no more drama in our lives,” Swift wrote on Instagram, quoting the 2001 single and sharing a photo from onstage with Blige.


Aduba, who hit the 1989 stage once before, showed off her musical chops by dueting with Swift on 2008’s “White Horse.”

“I’m so blown away by the multi-talented Uzo Aduba and how she smashed ‘White Horse’ tonight,” the 25-year-old singer wrote on the photo sharing website. “And also by how incredibly down to earth and wonderfully kind she is.”


The night’s most unexpected guests, however, were comedian Chris Rock and Friends star Matt LeBlanc. The actors danced down the “Style” runway with model Sean O’Pry, who Swifties will recognize as the hunk from the singer’s “Blank Space” music video.

“The #1 male model in the world, Sean O’Pry,” Swift wrote, sharing a photo with the men. “And the #2 and #3 top male models, Chris Rock and Matt LeBlanc. Obviously.”
