You know that awkward moment when you’re performing in front of thousands of people and your fancy extendable stage stops working? Well, Taylor Swift certainly does — the moving platform completely stopped working during her concert in Washington D.C. — see how she handled it!
Taylor Swift, 25, is not one to freak out when her performance doesn’t go as planned. In the case of her July 13 concert in Washington, D.C., the platform she was standing on stopped working. However, the show must go on, and Tay handled it like the pro she is!
It had to be super scary when the ground beneath Taylor’s feet stopped cooperating, but she was cool and calm. “They just told me in my ear that I might be here forever,” Tay joked with her audience. “Stuck up here…unless I choose to jump down. This thing is broken.” All of this happened after the crowd had already been poured on at the outdoor venue. “I was just thinking about how I was singing a song about rain and it rained today…it’s not that funny…We’re just gonna have to rechoreograph the entire show. It’s fine. Whatever. It’s gonna be a unique show, D.C.!” she said earlier.
Too bad, Mother Nature — not even rain and a malfunctioning stage can throw Tay off her game. What a queen! Watch the video below:
Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour Is Perfect For Celeb Sightings
If you’re wondering where literally every supermodel and celebrity is hanging out these days, look no further than Taylor’s 1989 world tour. Moments before that little set hitch, Taylor performed with one of her BFFs — Lorde, 18 — to perform “Royals”. Tay runs in tons of musically-inclined circles, and we’re just happy to bear witness to public jams with her friends. We’ve also seen Taylor perform a duet with Nick Jonas, 22 and a Bad Blood music video reunion with Gigi Hadid, 20, Lena Dunham, 29, Hailee Steinfeld, 18, and Lily Aldridge. Then there was the show where Tswift brought the U.S. women’s soccer team on stage. We can only wonder as to who will show up next!
