Taylor Swift sang “Smelly Cat” with Lisa Kudrow during her fifth and final 1989 show at the Staples Center in L.A. on Wednesday. It started with Kudrow coming onstage with a guitar, and Swift asking her, “What song are you going to sing, Phoebe?” Swift, of course, was referring to Kudrow’s character on “Friends,” who performed “Smelly Cat” a number of times on the hit show. Watch the video below.

At one point while both women were strumming along and singing the lyrics to “Smelly Cat,” the Kudrow stopped Swift and said to her, “That’s good, but you have to really feel the lyrics.” Kudrow encouragingly added, “You’ll get there.” And with that they continued singing the song, which features such lyrics as, “Smelly cat, smelly cat what are they feeding you? Smelly cat, smelly cat it’s not your fault,” and “They won’t take you to the vet. You’re obviously not their favorite pet.”

Of course, in real life, Swift is a big fan of cats, and has two feline friends, one named Olivia and the other named Meredith. Check out the video below of Lisa Kudrow and Taylor Swift rocking the Staples Center in L.A. with a rousing rendition of “Smelly Cat,” and tell Gossip Cop what you think.
