Los Angeles - Taylor Swift got stuck on stage last night.

The 25-year-old singer was performing at Nationals Park in Washington, DC - as part of her 1989 World Tour - when she found herself stuck on an extendable stage which had suddenly stopped working.

Addressing the crowd, Taylor said: "They just told me in my ear that I might be stuck up here forever. This thing is broken.

"I was just thinking about how I was singing a song about rain and it rained's not that funny...We're just gonna have to re-choreograph the entire show. It's fine. Whatever. It's gonna be a unique show DC!"

However, ever the consummate professional, Taylor laughed off the awkward situation and carried on performing.

Addressing the crowd, the Shake It Off singer said: "I'll just be here forever. Stuck up here, unless I choose to jump down. But in the meantime, I'm gonna sing a song for you called Clean and I hope you'll sing along."

Moments before Taylor got stuck, she had just finished performing Royals with her special guest star for the evening, Lorde.

The 22 singer has been bringing a whole host of her celebrity friends onstage with her during her 1989 tour, including singer Nick Jonas and models Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid.
