The singer also debuted “Thank You, Aimee” live at her second of three shows at Wembley Stadium

Taylor Swift is in London, England this weekend for a three-night Eras Tour run at Wembley Stadium. For her second night on Saturday, she treated fans to the live debut of “Thank You, Aimee,” and performed “Castles Crumbling” with her tour mate, Paramore’s Hayley Williams.

During her performance of The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology track “Thank You, Aimee,” which she played on acoustic guitar, she folded in parts of “Mean.” The songs about bullies made for a complementary mashup, as fan video highlights. She also changed the “Mean” lyric “Someday I’ll be living in a big old city” to “Someday I’ll be singing this song at Wembley,” which elicited audience cheers.

For the second surprise song, Swift performed Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) from the vault track “Castles Crumbling” featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams, who joined Swift for the piano-led song (Paramore serves as the opening guest for the Eras Tour European leg). Partway through as fan footage showcases, Swift told Williams, “I love you so much. You’re so good, it’s crazy. I cannot believe that I get to be on a tour with Hayley. I can’t believe she’s ever talked to my once.” Williams responded with a laugh and said, “You’re my longest music friend. Thank you. I love you.”
