“My sister is at Bon Iver in London and Taylor Swift just showed up and jealous doesn’t even begin to explain how I feel right now,” they wrote. The video quickly gained traction, with nearly 500,000 views within just a few hours. Taylor’s fans took to the comments section to pout at the exhilarating impromptu moment.
“First time going live,” one fan commented along with a tearful emoji. “This is truly one of my all-time favorite songs.” Others commented on the “chills” evoked by the clip. “I’m simply going to pass away,” interrupted one follower, while another observed, “She just happened to walk out.”
Taylor’s amazing surprise performance comes after her highly anticipated performance Midnight album released on October 21. “Exile”, it should be noted, is on her 2020 studio album folklore, and the famous song Bon Iver. As it happens, Taylor may have better news on the horizon. While sitting down with Jimmy Fallon above Tonight’s program on October 24, the “Blank Space” singer hinted at an upcoming tour.
“I think I should do it,” she said, Rolling Stone. When the time comes, we’ll do it. I miss it.” She also commented on the love she is feeling, after the success of Midnights – Billboard reported that she transferred the equivalent of over 1 million albums in one day. “I am with myself,” she said. “I feel overwhelmed by the love the fans have for this record. I’m 32 so we’re considered old age pop stars. So I’m just happy to be here.”
