Taylor Swift, Lisa Kudrow Sing ‘Friends’ Classic ‘Smelly Cat’ (VIDEO)

First Matt LeBlanc and now Lisa Kudrow.

Kudrow appeared on stage at Taylor Swift’s fifth and final show at Los Angeles’ Staples Center as her “Friends” character Phoebe Buffay.

“She’s only ever played in coffee houses before. She’s never played in a big venue like this,” Swift teased about the Central Perk regular.

Swift and Kudrow then performed a duet of Phoebe’s signature song, “Smelly Cat.” “You have to really feel the lyrics,” Kudrow interrupted Swift mid-song, referencing a classic “Friends” episode with guest star rocker Chrissie Hynde.

The crowd at the final leg of Swift’s “1989” L.A. tour stop also went crazy for her two other friends: Justin Timberlake and Selena Gomez.

Swift and Timberlake performed “Mirrors” from his 2013 album, “The 20/20 Experience.”
