Five of the best things that happened at Taylor Swift in London tonight

There are a few things guaranteed when you see Taylor Swift. You’ll get Superbowl-scale dance numbers, friendship bracelets swapped between groups of screaming teens, and surprise songs that send the crowd into overdrive. Now, I’m not your typical Taylor fan, (I barely knew my ‘Back to December’ from my ‘Cruel Summer’), but this Friday, she pulled out some pretty incredible moments. On the first night of her, quite frankly, historic takeover of Wembley Stadium on Friday June 21, the American superstar played a whopping three-and-a-half-hour set filled with plenty of incredible moments. Here’s just a few of them. 

1. ‘Why don’t you just bog off’ went hard 

2. The orange outfit was actually a slay

3. Oh yeah, and she did a mash-up of ‘Come Back…Be Here’ and ‘Maroon’ as her surprise songs
