Fans took the trip down memory lane on Friday night inside Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri as they witnessed Swift and Lautner embrace right after the Twilight star did a backflip and cartwheel on stage, an ode to a scene from the 2010 film Valentine's Day which the former couple starred in.
The touching embrace was followed by a surprise premiere of Swift's new music video for the song "I Can See You," which stars Lautner and actresses Joey King and Presley Cash.
Swift also had some kind words to share about her ex-boyfriend before welcoming him on stage. According to the Grammy winner, her ex played an essential role in her life when she made her third studio album, Speak Now. Lautner inspired the Speak Now track "Back to December" after they dated briefly in 2009.
"He was a very positive force in my life when I was making the Speak Now album, and I want to say he did every single stunt that you saw in that music video," she said. "He and his wife have become some of my closest friends, and it's very convenient because we all share the same first name."
Sweetly, Lautner added, "I respect you so much. Not just for the singer you are, the songwriter, the performer — but truly for the human you are. You are gracious, humble, kind, and I'm honored to know you."
Once the show ended, Lautner shared a funny Instagram photo of Swift, himself, and his wife, Taylor Dome, recreating the popular Spider-Man lookalike meme since they all share the same first name. Dome had also shared a group image of the trio with Swift wrapping her arms around the couple and giving the camera two thumbs up alongside a vintage photo of her meeting the artist in 2010.
"The Tale of Three Taylors🤍Everything that @taylorlautner said last night onstage is so true," she wrote. "@taylorswift you are not only one of the most talented people to ever walk this earth (truly don't think there is anything you can't do) but you are also one of THE kindest people."
She continued, "You welcomed my husband and I into your camp with open arms and the warmest heart. The way you are so down to earth and authentically yourself after all these years of being in the spotlight is inspiring. Your passion for your work and genuine love for your fans is something so incredible. I am honored to call you a friend."
