You're not dreaming: Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner together in one stage.

After the release of her third re-recorded album, Speak Now (Taylor's Version), Swift surprised her fans at her Eras Tour concert in Kansas City on Friday, July 7 (US time) with a brand new music video for one of the album's vault tracks, I Can See You. The video features none other than Taylor Lautner, the inspiration for Back to December.

After the MV premiere, the singer-songwriter gave a bigger surprise by bringing out the Twilight star and fellow actors of the video, Joey King and Presley Cash, on stage.

On stage, Lautner heaped praise on Swift, saying: "Taylor, I respect you so much. Not just for the singer you are, the songwriter, the performer, but for the human you are. You are gracious, humble, kind and I am honored to know you," he said.

For her part, Swift said that she was excited about this music video.

"I wrote this video treatment over a year ago and really wanted to play out symbolically how it's felt for me to have the fans helping me reclaim my music. I had my heart set on @JoeyKing, Taylor Lautner and @IAmPresleyCash starring in it," she tweeted, adding that King and Cash previously starred in her Mean video when they were a lot younger.

"Shout out to Tay Lautner for being so awesome to hang with on set. The Tale of 3 Taylors. I always wanted to direct fight scenes/a heist storyline and had the most incredible time plotting this out with my amazing DP Jonathan Sela. So proud of this one," she added.

This came the same day as the singer dropped the long-awaited re-recording of her 2010 album Speak Now (Taylor's Version). The latest record contains six new songs "from the vault."

Lautner and Swift briefly dated in 2009 after meeting on the set of the film Valentine's Day. They broke up in December of that year.

Swift is known for writing songs about her past relationships, and many fans believe that the song Back to December is about Lautner. In the song, Swift apologizes to an ex-boyfriend for ending things and asks for him back.

Lautner is now married to another Taylor, Taylor Dome, while Swift is happily single.
