The season 2 finale of New Girl will be Taylor-made.

Taylor Swift is guest-starring in the May 14 episode of the Fox comedy, EW has learned. The country pop star will play a character named Elaine, who is an “important guest” at the wedding of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (Satya Bhabha).

The singer-songwriter and  New Girl fan has been name-checked multiple times on the show this season: In one episode, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) sent Cece a text in which he said he was going through a “Taylor Swift-like range of emotions,” while in another, Nick (Jake Johnson) tried to cheer up a heartbroken Jess (Zooey Deschanel) with unfortunate dance moves while she moaned, “I just wanted to listen to Taylor Swift alone,” and “22” played in the background.

Swift, who has hosted Saturday Night Live, guest-starred in an episode of CSI and appeared in the romantic comedy film Valentine’s Day, will be on set next week to shoot her part.

Jamie Lee Curtis, Rob Reiner, Olivia Munn, Nick Kroll, Parker Posey, and Margo Martindale are among the other celebrities who have appeared on New Girl this season.
