In the course of the celebrations, Urban took to the stage. He was joined by Taylor Swift in a private concert of sorts. The duo gave such a rendition of Swift’s “Shake It Off,” and the crowd just went berserk. Hollywood Life informs that while Urban was amazing with the guitar, as usual, Swift too held her ground when she joined him, playing the guitar herself.
