Uzo Aduba is a two-time member of the Taylor Swift squad, appearing on stage this past summer with the pop superstar during tour stops in New Jersey and Los Angeles. “This will stay with me forever,” Aduba said to Seth Meyers during her appearance on Wednesday’s episode of Late Night.

As the Orange is the New Black star explained, Swift’s fans are of the die-hard variety. They’re in the ‘Shake It Off’ outfits. They have electric, lit-up 1989s. She really does have the most amazing fans,” Aduba said.

Meyers wanted to know if she felt pressure performing with Swift in front of the thousands of onlookers. Aduba said she had some “butterflies,” but explained why the nerves didn’t matter.

“You feel the radiating love from 13-year-olds coming, and 18-year-olds and college students,” she said. “It feels like… I can’t even describe it; it’s the most intense, amazing feeling.”
