A mysterious figure was spotted looming over Taylor Swift's recent Eras Tour show in Madrid, Spain, and concertgoers were quick to capture video footage of the strange event. According to TMZ, a "shadowy figure cloaked in darkness" stood atop the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium watching the songstress perform Reputation era track, "Delicate."

The unexpected guest can be seen dancing along to the beat of the music alone in the shadows. Video footage obtained by Consequence of Sound depicts the figure in all its shadowy glory, surrounded by gold light far above the rest of the crowd.

TMZ mentioned that though the identity of the figure remains unknown, the only way that someone would be granted access to that specific, restricted portion of the arena is if they are a true Swiftie!

Not long after the video was shared to social media, fans began to poke fun at the unique sighting, sarcastically speculating who... or what it could possibly be. Some hypothesized that it was Swift's ex, Matty Healy, while others guessed it to be one of the many famous musicians that have attended the super star's shows in the past.

Will we ever know the identity of the mystery figure stood atop Santiago Bernabéu Stadium at Swift's show in Madrid? Only time will tell amid "all of this silence and patience, pining in anticipation."

Swift is currently on the European Leg of her Eras Tour and is slated to perform in Edinburgh, UK on Friday (June 7), hopefully without any strange figures standing below the rafters this time.
