While many Swifties were hoping she might drop a single or announce a new album at the concert, they received a different surprise. Instead, Swift performed “This Is What You Came For,” the controversial song she wrote with ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg.

Swift played and sang a stripped-down version of the EDM song on a large, sparkly piano. Before performing the track, Swift reportedly told the crowd, “I’ve never played this song live before, but you know it. Maybe you can sing along.”

Swift also performed a variety of her biggest singles and fan favorite tracks from over the years, including “22,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “Holy Ground,” “You Belong With Me,” “Sparks Fly,” “Love Story,” “Blank Space” and “Style.”

The singer/songwriter was also noticeably under the weather during the performance. She even took a break to blow her nose mid-set, telling the crowd, “I have gotten a cold, three days ago, so I’m going to take a tissue break. I promise it’ll sound like 40 percent better if I do this. Of course you play one show in one year and you get a cold one time and it’s before that one show. That’s the way life works.”

Despite much speculation, it looks like Swift won’t be releasing an album this October after all. However, she still may treat fans to a surprise album in November after celebrating the 10-year anniversary of her debut album on Oct. 24.
