Remember When Taylor Swift Dressed Up Like Kiss to Prank Keith Urban?

It’s hard to remember a time when Taylor Swift toured as an opening act, but it was only three years ago that the country superstar opened for Keith Urban on select dates of his 2009 Escape Together World Tour.
Swift may have taken the stage first, but the ‘Begin Again’ singer got the last laugh at a Kansas City, Miss. stop when she and her band members upstaged the Aussie headliner by dressing as the iconic band Kiss during Urban’s ‘Kiss a Girl’ performance.
Urban seemed genuinely shocked by his unexpected visitors, even though onstage pranks have become a somewhat expected tradition on the country music touring circuit. The current ‘American Idol’ judge took the prank in stride, not even missing a beat, despite being surrounded by a group of sharp-dressed practical jokers (and a few dancing Hershey kisses for good measure).
These days, Swift is headlining her own sold out world tours. The record-breaking artist recently announced her 2013 Red Tour dates with opener Ed Sheeran in tow, which will kick off next March. That gives the British rocker plenty of time to meticulously plan his own prank against his songwriting buddy. Judging by the above clip, it’s going to be rather difficult to one-up the princess of practical jokes.
