Taylor Swift stopped her concert in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Friday to help a fan.

Swift was in the middle of singing her “Midnights” song “Would’ve Could’ve Should’ve” when she noticed a fan who was in distress. In a video that went viral on social media, the singer-songwriter is seen requesting assistance for the fan. “We need help right in front of me, please, right in front of me,” Swift sang while playing her guitar and keeping her eyes locked on the fan. “Just gonna keep playing until we notice where it is.”

Swift continued strumming her guitar while motioning over to the person in need of help.

“I’m just gonna keep playing ’til somebody helps them, then I’m gonna keep singing the song,” she continued. “I don’t think anybody’s gotten to them yet, and they’re gonna. Because we’re not gonna keep singing, we’re just gonna keep talking about the people that need help in front of me. Just let me know when. I can do this all night.”

After the fan received support, and Swift got the message that they were fine, she said, “You’re good? Awesome!” She then seamlessly returned to singing “Would’ve Could’ve Should’ve.”

The following night in Swift’s three-night run in Edinburgh, she performed “The Bolter” for the first time, which is one of the songs from the Anthology edition of her latest album “The Tortured Poets Department.” She then transitioned to sing “Getaway Car” from “Reputation.”

Swift also added two more songs to her first live performances: a mashup of “Crazier,” a track from 2009’s “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” and “All of the Girls You Loved Before,” a song that was originally slated for her 2019 album “Lover” but was released last year. “You get extra points if you know this next song at all because it is really, really old,” Swift told the crowd at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium in between transitioning from “All of the Girls You Loved Before” to end with “Crazier.”
