After a lengthy 80-date tour, filled with cover songs and a significant number of celebrity cameos, the North American leg of Taylor Swift’s Speak Now tour came to a close last night at Madison Square Garden. Going out with a bang, Taylor brought out her fellow “Super Bass”-loving amiga Selena Gomez for a performance of Selena’s single “Who Says”, as well as James Taylor (whom Swift is actually named after) for “Fire & Rain”. Jump below to watch both showstopping numbers, though you’ll be hard-pressed to actually hear Taylor and Selena’s singing over the deafening screams of everyone in the audience.
More incredible than the success of Taylor’s tour — which is estimated to have racked in more than $100 million in ticket sales — is the sad fact that we failed to correctly guess one cover song Taylor would perform. Ah well, there’s always the tour for her next album, which won’t be out for at least another year (if not later).

Taylor Swift and James Taylor – “Fire & Rain” / “Fifteen”
After following Swift’s tour over the past few months, we’re certainly not surprised that the country singer picked up an AMA as Artist Of The Year, a CMA as Entertainer Of The Year, and was named Woman Of The Year by Billboard.
