Taylor Swift & Niall Horan Surprise Crowd with “Slow Hands” Performance
Taylor Swift became known for bringing out a musical guest to almost every one of her 1989 World Tour concerts a few years ago, but having special guests on the Reputation Stadium Tour is, well, a little more special. The 28-year-old was joined by Selena Gomez, Shawn Mendes and Troye Sivan during her shows in Los Angeles last month, but there was a lull in surprises ever since. But when she performed at Wembley Stadium in London over the weekend she decided she needed a little help from one of her longtime friends, none other than Niall Horan.
The former One Direction singer joined Tay on stage on June 22nd and performed his hit solo single, “Slow Hands,” with a little help from the blonde herself.
As you can probably imagine, fans both at the show and home on social media FREAKED OUT as soon as they realized that two of their faves were performing together.

After the show, T.Swift shared some pictures of the pair’s soundcheck earlier in the day on Instagram. She wrote, “Soundcheck at Wembley Stadium with this guy @niallhoran THANK YOU for surprising the crowd tonight!!!”
The 24-year-old also posted some performance photos and thanked the “Delicate” singer for having him. He said, “Thank you @taylorswift for having me last night at Wembley. What a fantastic experience to share the stage with you!”
“Slow Hands” may have come out over a year ago, but it’s still a total bop and hearing it performed by Niall AND Taylor just made it all the more amazing.
