Before the song, Taylor Swift addressed the crowd saying it’s her first time in Swansea, and this was met by a loud cheer. “It kind of took my breath away,” added Taylor Swift, about the energy of the crowd singing along to the songs.

“You all look a level above beautiful,” said Taylor to the crowd. “What’s the word for something more than beautiful?,” she added paving the way to the song “Gorgeous.”

During the performance of the song, she gave a shout out to all her backup dancers who were on stage. “And I’m Taylor,” she added waving at the crowd. These all were met by massive cheers from the crowd. Talk about an entertainer!

 Camila Cabello – Havanna

Camila and her whole dance crew appeared in full black clothing and Camila did a bit of Salsa with a backup dancer during the live act. However, the lack of Young Thug’s verses was felt.

Shawn Mendes and James Bay – Mercy

Ed Sheeran – Castle on the Hill and Shape Of You

The greatest thing about Ed Sheeran’s performances is that he setups his music on stage. Even at The Biggest Weekend in Swansea, we saw him prepare the beats and tune live on stage before he started “Shape Of You.”

The world’s most talented ginger appeared with his usual acoustic guitar with the “Divide” sticker on it and stunned the crowd.

The crowds sang both the songs in unison along with Ed Sheeran.

Again, we saw Ed Sheeran setup his loop pedal for the music of “Castle on the Hill.”
