Last Saturday night in Kansas City, MO, Taylor Swift joined Keith Urban for what was her final stop on his 2009 Escape Together World Tour. To make sure she left a lasting impression, Taylor and her bandmates schemed a plan to prank Keith during his performance of “Kiss A Girl.”
The plan was executed to perfection as Taylor and team stormed the stage disguised as the band KISS. The outfits and facepaint were done to perfection. And if that was not enough, additional pranksters hit the stage dressed as lifesize Hershey kisses. Keith seemed unfazed by the assault, although Taylor did step in a couple times to sing the lyrics as Keith appeared to crack up nearby. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this video is worth a million more.
Following the event, Taylor updated fans on her Twitter, “Last night on tour with Keith Urban. Pranking is a must. How about rushing his stage during “Kiss a Girl” dressed like this? It went down.”
Coincidently, Keith Urban’s Escape Together World Tour hits Hershey, PA on August 18. Don’t rule out a repeat performance by the life size Hershey Kisses at this show, but don’t count on another surprise performance by “KISS” anytime soon.
In other Taylor news, rap producer Timbaland recently told radaronline.com that he wants to work with the country superstar. “I think the main person I want to get is Taylor Swift,” he said. “I love her voice. I just think me and her can do something amazing.”
Timbaland contacted Taylor’s reps, but to no avail. “Her people said that she was busy,” he added. “She wanted to do it, but you know, there’s all these people you gotta go through and her people said she was busy? but I’ll make it happen.”
The producer says fans can expect a fusion of hip-hop and country if they record together. “It would have a country swing, but just a little bit of me. I know how to do that real good.”
