Fans Outraged With No Special Guest At T-Swift's Sydney Show
Aussie Taylor Swift fans are NOT happy!
After surprising audiences around the world with guests like Ellen DeGeneres, Mick Jagger and Selena Gomez, her Sydney audience at ANZ stadium last night missed out.
Many fans vented their disappointment on social media, some putting it down to a geographical factor, even though we have PLENTY of worthy pop stars - did you watch the ARIA'S?

Although the show was being filmed for a tour DVD!
The 25-year-old pop sensation wowed a packed house at ANZ stadium with 76,000 flocking to watch her perform.
She tweeted this photo of the packed house last night.
I love you, Sydney. All 76,000 of you. pic.twitter.com/URV3YlAtlT— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) November 28, 2015
Speculation had been bubbling before her show that Aussies Hugh Jackman or Kylie Minogue, or even Kiwi singer Lorde, might appear on stage with the popstar.
However, Swift revealed this was one of the largest crowds she had ever played in front of, so perhaps she just wanted to relish the moment alone with only a backing band and dancers to keep her company.
"I'm just taking this all in, this is one of the biggest crowds I've ever played for," Swift told the crowd halfway through her show.
She kicked off the night with a warm message to the audience as she sang her hit Welcome to New York.
"Good evening Sydney, I'm Taylor and dare I say you have never looked more beautiful than you do tonight Sydney, Australia," she said.
However there was no one more beautiful, or sparkly, than Swift herself.
In a show that was part light show, part music concert with a touch of whimsy, the singer went through multiple outfit changes from sequinned crop tops to her now signature jumpsuits, each one more sparkly than the next.But songs
from her number one album 1989 were all her young audience seemed to really care about.
She attacked break up songs such as I Knew You Were Trouble and We Are Never Getting Back Together, but had quieter moments on the songs You Are In Love - where it was just Swift and her guitar - and Love Story.
The most whimsical moment came during How You Get The Girl when her troupe of male backing dancers held lit umbrellas while Swift sashayed in a neon pink skirt and crop top that also lit up.
The crowd, each adorned with a flashing wrist band courtesy of Swift, sang every word to hits Bad Blood, Out of the Woods and jumped to their feet as she closed with Shake It Off.
And the popstar made a promise to the audience that she's going to have to keep - that she will be back.
"I always come to see you and I'm always going to," she promised.
*Taylor Swift's Australian tour continues in Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne until December 12.
