Watch!! Singer Taylor Swift Smartly Handle Concert Malfunction

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.”


Although Swift had an earpiece in, the only way she could communicate back to her team was to speak into her mic, letting the crowd in on every part of the unexpected moment. Since it looked like no progress was being made, Swift took it upon herself to start singing some songs.

She started off with “Our Song”, getting plenty of help from the audience. Swift continued to improvise, breaking into “Wildest Dreams” sans backup music. The “Love Story” singer expressed her excitement about returning to her home state on Instagram this week, sharing a photo holding a scrapbook featuring a picture of herself as a young girl.

She captioned it: “Take me home.”
