A recent Taylor Swift gig appeared to take a paranormal turn when her piano began playing by itself.
The Bad Blood hitmaker, who is currently on her Eras Tour in the US, was left visibly freaked out in footage captured from her Sunday concert in Massachusetts when her keyboard began playing by itself before she could begin to play Red(Taylor’s Version).
After the initial mysterious tinkling, a stunned Swift turned to the crowd and insisted: “I didn’t play that!”
But the noise didn’t end there as the piano continued to make sounds of its own accord, leaving her to question if it was just her who was hearing it.
The 33-year-old asked her fans: “Oh my god, do you hear that? Is that happening for you guys too?”
However, Swift told the crowd not to worry and explained that the “haunted” self-playing piano was because of water damage.

The Grammy winner played an entire three and a half hour show at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts in the pouring rain the night prior.
Referencing the rainfall, she said: “What happened is – long story short, I get to my acoustic set, you know when you’ve been in a bath for too long and your fingers are so pruned, like I looked at my fingers trying to play the guitar, and it was like I was in a bath for 2.5 hours of lukewarm water.
“Another thing that has happened is that [the water] has clearly broken my keyboard because it was like, literally underwater.
“I didn’t know how any of the instruments were working last night. So this is broken, I’m just gonna get the guitar. It’s gonna be fine.”
It wasn’t the first rain-filled show Swift has performed in during her current tour. Her gig in Nashville was almost canceled entirely when bad weather hit the city.
The music star ended up taking the stage at 10pm, two hours after her usual start time, and performed until after 1:30am.
Following the gig, she tweeted: “The dancers, band, crowd and I all pretty much turned into little kids joyfully jumping in puddles all night.
“I wanted to thank the crowd again for waiting for the weather to clear. And my amazing crew for keeping the stage, lighting, and equipment all dry and working so we could play. That was a late, great night I won’t forget.”
