Taylor Swift dancer leaves crowd in stitches with iconic Dublin phrase

Taylor Swift dancer Dublin

It’s the second night in a row he has stolen the show

One of the dancers for Taylor Swift became a crowd favourite once again last night as he belted out a gas Dublin slang phrase during the show.

Fans took to the Aviva Stadium for the second night of Swift’s sold out three-night Eras Tour of Dublin as the singer-songwriter blew fans away with her performance once again.

However, it was one of the ‘All Too Well’ singer’s dancers, Kameron Saunders, AKA Kam, who stole the show for the second day in a row on Saturday after shouting out a bit of Dublin slang.

During Swift’s performance of ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’, Kam jumped on the mic right before the chorus dropped to exclaim “The neck of ye!” to the crowd, to huge cheers and laughs.

During the same moment on Friday’s opening concert, Kam shouted out “Póg mo thóin”, which translates to “Kiss my ass” in Irish.

However, we think Kam’s Saturday night cameo shout-out perfectly embodies the sentiment of ‘We Are Never Getting Back Together’, and we applaud whoever is feeding him these expert lines.

The record-breaking Eras Tour in the Aviva Stadium is expected to have a total of around 150,000 Swifties in attendance.

Before Friday’s show, it had been six years since the last time the 34-year-old had played in Dublin.

Over the weekend, Swifties weren’t the only fans in town as the concert clashed with the likes of Shania Twain in Malahide Castle on Friday, the GAA Quarter-Finals in Croke Park, Longitude festival and Dublin Pride celebrations.

On Friday, Swift addressed the crowd saying, “Dublin, we’ve arrived! You guys are making me feel so good, it’s gone straight to my head.

“I feel very, very powerful,” she continued.

Before the gigs started, Swift had received a bouquet of flowers from U2, alongside a welcome note which read: “Dear Taylor, Welcome back to our hometown… leave some of it standing?!!!!”

The singer will be getting back on the stage for the final concert at the Aviva on Sunday evening.

We’ll be waiting for whatever Kam has to say as a send off to Dublin.
