While performing at the Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on July 7, Swift premiered a new music video for ‘I Can See You (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)’ halfway through her set.
The music video – which was self-directed by Taylor Swift herself and can be seen below – stars Joey King, Taylor Lautner and Presley Cash – the latter of whom had dated Swift in the past and was the topic of her hit 2009 song ‘Back To December’.
Since 2009, Lautner and Swift have gone on to become friends, with Lautner declaring earlier this year that he felt “safe” about the release of ‘Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)’.
Swift took the surprises in Kansas City one step further, bringing out Lautner, King and actress Presley Cash onstage with her. Lautner, who was the last to be introduced, spiralled into a backflip on his way down the ramp to join Swift and co.
“Taylor, I respect you so much. Not just for the singer you are, the songwriter, the performer, but for the human you are. You are gracious, humble, kind and I am honoured to know you,” Lautner said to Swift onstage.
