Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour kicked off last weekend in Arizona, and the theatrics of the show were one of the most talked about moments of the concert.
The singer takes a pool-like dive head-first off the stage during one of her performances, exiting through a gap in the floor.
Disappearing in the most extravagant fashion, Taylor left her fans in the audience in awe as they watched her do this stunt.
Swift performed in Arizona on Friday and Saturday for the first two performances of the tour, with many of the audience members catching the dive on camera.
Rocking a beautiful flowing dress, the country-turned pop star can be seen walking towards a rectangular gap that opened up on the stage.
She then raises her hands in the air and gets into proper diving form before making the jump on the stage.
As she dives, a splash sound effect comes over the stadium, while a graphic of her swimming underneath the stage is projected onto the ground before she appears back to sing songs from her album Midnights.
Fans took their reactions to social media to express their amusement at the stunt.
She’s a mermaid. EXCUSE ME WHAT??! #taylorswift #erastourtaylorswift

Her much-anticipated tour has yet to release international dates but will wrap up the US tour on August 9 in Los Angeles.
The first stop of her tour, Glendale, Arizona, was honored that their city was chosen to kick-off Taylor’s tour, with the mayor even renaming it ‘Swift City’ for the weekend in her honor.
Performing for 70,000 fans for the opening night, the Grammy winner conquered the stage in multiple outfits, including a pink rhinestone leotard with nude tights and shimmering knee-high boots, and a sultry one-legged black bodysuit bedazzled with ruby red snakes as bicycles and cars went by her on stage.
The singer also released four new tracks in honor of celebrating the tour to hype up the fans.
