11/26/2011 by Olivia Allin

Taylor Swift wrapped the 2011 dates of her "Speak Now" World Tour at New York's Madison Square Garden this week and brought out all the stops, including two very special guests.

The pop and country singer performed for the first time on-stage with her good friend Selena Gomez and with her namesake, James Taylor.

At the November 22 performance, Swift brought Gomez up on stage perform the former Disney star's hit, "Who Says," causing near-hysteria in the audience. Later in the show, Swift and James Taylor performed his 1970 hit "Fire and Rain," followed by her song "Fifteen." (See videos of the performances below).

During Swift's "Speak Now" tour, she visited 17 countries and dozens of venues. She will continue the tour with 2012 dates in Australia and New Zealand.

It's been an exciting year for Swift, who took home Entertainer of the Year at the Country Music Awards earlier in the month.

"I am freaking out," Swift told OnTheRedCarpet.com after the show. "It's one thing to win (Entertainer of the Year) once, and you're like, 'Yeah, that was the craziest, biggest deal of my life.' And then to win it is again ... this can't be possibly."

It was the only award the 21-year-old singer took home at the Country Music Association's annual ceremony which took place on Wednesday, November 9, in Nashville and aired live on ABC.

Last month, Swift was named 2011 Billboard Woman of the Year for outselling any other artist in the past 12 months. The singer will receive an official award for the honor at the 2011 Billboard Women in Music event on December 2.

At 21, Swift is the youngest artist to receive the honor. Her third studio album "Speak Now," which was released in October 2010, has sold over five million copies, including one million in its debut week.

The singer has largely spent most of 2011 on tour for the album. She was snubbed from the 2011 Grammy Awards and did not receive a nomination. Swift does however, already have four Grammy Awards to her credit.
