Ellie Goulding joins Taylor Swift onstage in Los Angeles - watch

The duo duetted on Goulding's hit 'Anything Could Happen' at LA's Staples Center last night (August 23)

Taylor Swift brought out Ellie Goulding to perform the British singer's hit 'Anything Could Happen' with her at LA's Staples Center last night (August 23).

Swift teased the audience by telling them: "We have an incredible, insanely talented, incredibly cool artist about to come out on stage to sing for you. She's not from around here. She's actually from the UK..."

Goulding then appeared atop a staircase at the back of the stage and the pair traded verses on 'Anything Could Happen', a UK Top 5 hit for Goulding last year (2012). Press 'play' above to watch fan-shot footage of their duet.

Goulding, currently Number One in the UK with new single 'Burn', is the latest in a string of special guests to have joined Swift on stage during her 'Red' tour. She brought out Tegan and Sara earlier this week and Ed Sheeran, Cher Lloyd and Carly Simon have all performed duets with her recently.

Meanwhile, Swift has revealed that she chipped her tooth during a live show last month after "uppercutting" herself in the mouth. The singer was performing live in Pittsburgh on July 6 when she accidentally crashed the microphone into her mouth during a rendition of her hit single 'I Knew You Were Trouble'.

A competition offering the chance to have a picture taken with Taylor Swift backstage at one of her concerts was cancelled recently because users on online communities 4chan and Reddit conspired to ensure a "creepy old guy" named Charles would win.
