Taylor Swift shared the stage at her Santa Clara, Calif., show with English girl group Little Mix, and turned over the mic, so they could perform their new single “Black Magic.” Taylor sang and danced along.

Swift has featured a number of groups, including Fifth Harmony, on the latest leg of her 1989 tour, giving them invaluable exposure.

The all-girl band, made up by Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson share something in common with boy band One Direction.

They also began as soloists on the UK music show “X-Factor.” They joined together to compete in the group competition. They won and were signed to a record deal by Simon Cowell’s Syco Music.

They released their debut album, DNA in the UK and peaked at No. 3 on the UK and Irish charts. That was enough to prompt Columbia Records to sign the group and introduce their music stateside.

In May, Little Mix released “Black Magic”, the first single from their third studio album, Get Weird. The album is expected to be released later this year.

Swift introduced the girls at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara and tweeted afterward, “LITTLE MIX!! Love these girls!! They smashed it tonight in front of 50,000 screaming fans. Amazing. @LittleMix.”

Wow! They couldn’t have gotten a better endorsement.

The girls were equally effusive on social media.

“OMG cannot quite believe what’s just happened, one of the best experiences in our little mix life ever! Cannot thank Taylor enough for having us tonight, 60,000 incredible screaming swifties with a sprinkle of ‘Black Magic.'”

Folk/rock legend Joan Baez and Julia Roberts also joined Swift on stage to dance to her song “Style.” She called them “my heroes,” on Twitter.
