Taylor Swift has been wowing fans with her stunts on her latest tour - but a new video shows that things don't always go to plan.

The 33-year-old songstress has been keeping her legions of fans entertained since she kicked off her long-awaited Eras tour.  With a setlist of a whopping 44 songs, Swift was always going to have to pull out the big guns in order to keep fans in attendance entertained for so long.

As a result, she introduced a whole new take on the stage dive as part of her show.

Last month, footage captured at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, showed Swift doing her best Michael Phelps impression, as she calmly walked on the stage before jumping into a concealed gap.

This is how the stage dive SHOULD go:

After diving into the hole, screens then show the 'You Belong With Me' star swimming the length of the stage.

Of course, a stunt this impressive relies on several factors to make it all come together and look flawless - such as the right visuals, sound mixing, stage marking, and timing.

Sadly, during a recent show, Taylor suffered her first botch of the stunt.

Check it out below:

Fan footage shows the moment the singer calmly walks along the stage in a stunning yellow dress, awaiting the trap door on the stage to open so that she can jump in as usual.

However, after the splash noise erupts throughout the area, it is clear that something has gone very wrong - and Swift can be seen slowly walking forward with her head looking down, as if she's looking for her stage mark.

At one point, it even looks like she mouths, "What the f***?!"

After looking around for an awkward moment, she eventually completes the dive - still to adoring cheers from fans.

After doing some investigating, Swifties on Twitter were quick to dispel the assumption that the singer had struggled to find her marker, but instead contemplated that the trap door did not open on time/or the splash sound was played too early.

This comes after it was reported that Swift and her boyfriend of six years, Joe Alwyn, had called time on their relationship.

According to sources, the split was amicable as opposed to "dramatic" - stating that their six-year romance had simply run its course. This possibly explains why the Conversations with Friends actor hadn't been spotted at any of Swift's concerts recently.
