Watch Taylor Swift and Haim Do a Little Dance While Nelly Sings “Hot in Herre” on the 1989 Tour

How do you follow up duets with Fetty Wap, Alanis Morissette, St. Vincent, Beck, and, most recently, Mick Jagger? If you’re Taylor Swift, whose 1989 World Tour has been a blindingly star-studded affair, you bring out Nelly to perform his 2002 dance-club anthem “Hot in Herre” and enlist indie sister act Haim (who’ve been opening for Swift) to do a little dance in the background.

To be fair, the video evidence shows that Swift and Haim also provided backing vocals on crucial lines like “What?”, “Oh!”,  and “I think my butt gettin’ big,” but it’s the playful choreography (and matching white minidresses) that make this unlikely collaboration worth watching. Sadly, last night’s show in St. Louis was Haim’s last performance on the 1989 tour, but it seems fair to presume that there will be more guest stars—and hopefully more dancing—between now and Dec. 12, when the 1989 World Tour wraps up in Australia.
