Going out with a bang! Taylor Swift brought the house down for her final night at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Wednesday, Aug. 26 — inviting Selena Gomez, Justin Timberlake, and Lisa Kudrow to join her on stage.

Making her fans' dreams come true, Swift's first celebrity special guest was none other than her real-life BFF Gomez, who appeared on stage next to the 25-year-old performer wearing a tiny black and gold hotpant suit. Referring to her pal as a "multitalented performer who is good at pretty much everything she does," Swift invited Gomez up onto the stage to do her debut live performance of what Swift named "the song of the summer," "Good for You."

"It was a major girl power moment," one audience member told Us Weekly. "Afterwards Selena and Taylor seemed so excited about how well the performance went."

But while the crowd went wild for Gomez, they had another treat in store later in the show — one they couldn't have imagined in their wildest dreams! Swift announced to fans they had a coffee shop performer in the house, none other than Phoebe Buffay, aka Kudrow.

As the audience erupted into cheers, Kudrow appeared onstage, guitar in hand, for a show-stopping performance of "Smelly Cat!"

“So @taylorswift13 is THE best person I've ever met,” Kudrow wrote about her experience later that night, via Twitter. “That was fun. Thanks Taylor.”

Not content with whipping her audience into a wild frenzy with her first two special guests, Swift arranged for one last VIP to join her on her stage for the final L.A. leg of her 1989 World Tour — this time bringing the man in question out of paternity leave for his first live performance since becoming a dad.

Announcing her final guest star (who Swift revealed to be "so gracious about me fangirling"), Timberlake joined her on stage for a rendition of "Mirrors."

Timberlake, who dressed in the same black jacket and jeans he'd worn to dinner earlier at Katsuya, "literally made the ground shake" when he arrived on stage, as the crowd screamed, jumped, and stamped their feet in excitement.

One audience member particularly excited to see him on stage was wife Jessica Biel, who watched the whole performance from the crowd, accompanied by her mom.

"Jessica was clapping a ton and singing along to Justin's performance," a source tells Us. "She was clearly loving it!"

Other celebs in the audience included Jaime King, Nina Dobrev, Julianne Hough, and Zelda Williams.
