Taylor Swift and Sugarland dropped their collaborative single "Babe" earlier this year, and they finally brought it to the stage on Saturday night (October 6) during the final North American Reputation tour date in Arlington, Texas.

The pop star brought out Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush to the applause of AT&T Stadium, and the trio gave an enthusiastic live debut of the country hit. 

The 28-year-old originally wrote "Babe" for her 2012 album, Red, but it didn't end up making the cut.

“I’m so happy that it gets its own life,” she said in an Instagram video over the summer. “I’m so happy that Sugarland wanted to record it and has done such a great job with it. I’m so stoked to be able to sing on it, too.” 

Watch the performance below.

Sugarland wasn't the only special guest T-Swift brought out during her two-night Arlington tour stop. On Friday (October 5), Maren Morris joined her onstage to perform "The Middle," her crossover collaborative hit with Zedd.

Swift heads to Australia and New Zealand for a handful of shows in October and November before wrapping up her Reputation tour with two nights in Tokyo at the end of November. Before trekking overseas, she'll go to L.A. to perform during the American Music Awards on Tuesday, October 9.
