Katy Perry , Lorde, and Ellie Goulding partied together at Universal's Brit Awards afterparty in London on Thursday. The trio stuck close in front of the DJ booth and took turns spinning some records while mingling with the rest of the star-studded crowd. Besides all taking the stage to perform and accept trophies  at the night's event, the three songstresses also happen to be close friends with Taylor Swift  — and while Taylor manned the turntables  after last year's ceremonies, her girlfriends made sure to take over DJing duties in her absence this time around.
While Taylor and Katy have been friends for a while — they also happen to have both dated John Mayer  — Taylor has built more recent bonds with Lorde and Ellie. Lorde helped celebrate Taylor's 24th birthday with a garden party in Australia in December, and most recently, the two cheered each other on at the Grammys . When Taylor got her headline-making haircut in the UK  last week, she had the support of fellow singer Ellie Goulding, who was part of a haircut crew that also included British model Cara Delevingne. Keep reading to see how the three girls bonded in the DJ booth during a post-Brit Awards bash.
