Taylor Swift made her official return to the stage on Friday night for her first post-Reputation-release concert performance at KIIS FM’s iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2017 in Los Angeles. The “…Ready for It?” singer performed two of her new songs along with a few throwbacks, proving Old Taylor might still be alive and well after all. Although fans knew she’d be headlining the concert, they got a huge surprise when Ed Sheeran stepped on stage to sing with her. It’s the first time the two singers and good friends have shared a stage in three years.
T.Swift took the stage as the performer of the night. She opened her set with her single “…Ready For It?” before transitioning into “Blank Space,””Shake It Off,” and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.” She ended the night with “Look What You Made Me Do”—but before that final number, Swift brought the house down with her first live performance of “End Game,” a song from Reputation that features Sheeran and Future. She started the song on her own before Sheeran popped back onstage to join her (he’d finished his own performance for the concert earlier). The crowd, unsurprisingly, went wild.

This is one of the few times we’ve seen the pair perform together since Sheeran opened for the 2013-2014 Red Tour, and Twitter was all about it. Check out some of the best reactions below:
