Taylor Swift blew fans away with a particularly emotional performance during her Eras Tour.
The global pop star rolled into Chicago over the weekend as she made her way through for her mammoth US tour.
As part of her sets, Taytay has been treating her army of fans to a number of surprise tunes.
It's something her live performances have become known for, with the tradition going back to The Red Tour, and even the Speak Now World Tour, which saw her belt out some interesting covers.
And this time was no different, with fans at Soldier Field wowed with a rendition of her break-up hit 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' over the weekend.
For those of you who don't know, it's about someone who has just split up with their significant other, but realises later that they are the one.
The lyrics include: "Been sitting eyes wide open behind these four walls, hoping you'd call
"It's just a cruel existence like there's no point hoping at all
"I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home."
So you get the idea, it's a very sad song.
And Swift's performance of the track came amid reports that she and 1975 frontman Matty Healy had parted ways.
If reports are correct, the pair had only been dating a couple of months, right off the back of Swift's split from actor Joe Alwyn, who she was with for about six years.
Sharing a brief clip from the performance of the track, many fans pointed out that she looked pretty choked up while singing the lyrics.
"Her voice breaks - she‘s looking up trying to hold her tears - continues to sing like that, it’s literally heartbreaking," one fan wrote on social media.
Another commented: "'... lost the love of my life...' sucks in a breath to stop her voice from trembling."
"That line is hitting a little too close to home for her," put a third.
While someone else added: "The voice crack."
Reports of Swift and Healy's split emerged yesterday (5 June).
And with the singer well known for leaving hints in her performances at much deeper truths, so it wouldn't be a massive surprise if she was trying to let her fans know what was going on.
