• Taylor Swift has epic stage snafu in Dublin
  • She turned a mishap into a magical moment
  • During her Eras Tour

Mid-performance of "The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived," Swift was left hanging — quite literally — when a platform malfunctioned, leaving her stranded in the air. But thanks to the swift (pun intended) action of her backup dancer, Jan Ravnik, the pop superstar was back on solid ground in no time, flashing her iconic smile. The duo didn't miss a beat, diving right back into their choreography with the kind of seamless professionalism fans have come to expect from Team Swift.

Swift's Dublin shows weren't just about overcoming technical difficulties. The singer took a moment to share a heartfelt revelation with her audience. Swift disclosed that Ireland, with its rich tradition of storytelling, played a pivotal role in inspiring her Grammy-winning album, Folklore. "Folklore in general, it just belongs in Ireland,” she confessed, drawing cheers from the crowd. Swift's imaginative journey during the pandemic led her to create an album that, in her words, "kinda seemed like Ireland." It's clear the Emerald Isle holds a special place in her heart, influencing the fantastical narratives that have captivated millions.
