Taylor Swift is only human. While she might be one of the most successful artists of our time, the “Delicate” singer still gets the common cold -- but in her case, the sniffles can strike while she's performing in front of tens of thousands of people.

During her show at Cleveland’s FirstEnergy Stadium on Tuesday (July 17), Swift admitted that she wasn’t feeling so well in videos captured and shared by fans.

"I have a bit of a cold. One second. Just really quick, can you guys like scream or something so I don't feel weird about this?” Swift said as she pulled out a tissue. After quickly blowing her nose off to the side, she turned back to the crowd and thanked her fans: “You guys did a great job. Thank you.”

Swifties, however, didn’t seem to mind. Fans who attended the show tweeted in support of the singer, saying that she put on a remarkable performance despite feeling under the weather.

Swift is gearing up to perform three back-to-back shows at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on July 20, 21 and 22.
