Call it what you want, but this concert malfunction makes us respect Taylor Swift even more.
During her second sold-out show in Philadelphia Saturday night, the Grammy winner was trying to perform "Delicate" as she was transported from one stage to another.
But in between singing the hit single, an unexpected malfunction occurred that even caught Taylor by surprise.
"I'm pretty sure I'm stuck up here," she told the crowd. "It's a nice view though."
"What you just saw was me going straight up and down in this sparkly basket," Taylor continued. "It's supposed to take me to the other side of the stadium. I have another flying thing across there that works apparently. Or wait! So there are people talking in my ear. This is so boring for you, I'm sorry."
As people behind the scenes worked their magic, Taylor delighted the crowd when she started singing "Our Song" and "Wildest Dreams" without any backup music.
Within a few moments, Swifties started singing along and created a memorable concert moment during the reputation stadium tour.
"This is the first night they have a technical difficulty of this caliber and she mastered it!" concertgoer Pedro Garcia explained on Instagram after documenting the moment. In other words, the problem was quickly resolved and nobody was bothered.
As the tour continues traveling across the country—Ohio and New Jersey are next—fans have received big surprises during shows.
