Taylor Swift dedicated this secret song to Beabadoobee — so we got her reaction

After the top 35 songs on the 44-song list for each stop on the Eras tour, Taylor Swift reserved the next two spots for secret songs from her discography that have yet to appear on the 3 Hours of set list, performed exclusively for that evening's audience. During her March 24 show in Las Vegas, the 12-time Grammy Award winner surprised a fellow musician with her choice. "I actually saw an interview done by Beabadoobee, who was our amazing, wonderful opening act. She said, 'I grew up listening to songs from Taylor's first album,' and she named A specific song,” Swift recalled. "I think at her first show with us, I would play that specific song that she said she wanted to hear. I wrote it for a ninth-grade talent show. It's called 'Our Song 》.

Beabadoobee, a 22-year-old artist who was onstage at the time, tells Bustle that Swift's song dedication caught her off guard. "I had no idea she was going to do this," Beadubi said. "When I heard that in the best way, I wanted to cry, I wanted to scream. Coming from someone I truly respect, it was like the child inside me was healing. I was melting!"

The Filipino-British singer, whose song "See You Soon" soundtracked Swift's NYU commencement speech recap on TikTok, admitted that she and Swift sang "Our Song" together.

"I sang along to all her songs," said Beabadoobee (born Beatrice Kristi Ilejay Laus), who opened the show for a crowd of 60,000 at Allegiant Stadium before Swift performed.

Before Swift announced her Eras tour in late 2022, she reached out to the indie pop star about being one of her nine opening acts in 2023. "I was so happy and thought it was just a prank," Beabadoobee added. "I had no idea this was going to happen or that I would be supporting her. This is truly a dream come true and I still feel overwhelmed."

In total, Beabadoobee will serve as the opener for the Eras Tour, playing 12 shows in five cities: Las Vegas, Texas (Arlington and Houston), Tampa and Atlanta. Other tour guests include Paramore, HAIM, Phoebe Bridgers, MUNA, girl in red, GAYLE, Gracie Abrams and OWENN.
