Taylor Swift gets stuck mid-air in sparkly basket at Philadelphia concert

- Taylor Swift experienced a brief stage malfunction while performing at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field Saturday night, but the pop superstar handled it like a pro.

While performing her recent hit "Delicate," Swift got stuck mid-air in a sparkly basket meant to transport her across the stadium.

Partially through the song, the singer admitted to the crowd, "I'm pretty sure I'm stuck up here. It's a nice view, though."

After finishing the song, Swift got candid with the audience.

"So what you just saw was me going like straight up and down in this sparkly basket. It's supposed to take me to the other side of the stadium," she said. "So what happens now is basically I'm just chilling waiting to figure out what happens next."

As stage crew worked to rectify the situation, Swift bantered with the audience and broke out into an a cappella rendition of “Our Song.”

Eventually, the singer entered a new basket and continued the show.
