The 34-year-old pop star is set for six sold-out nights, kicking off on Saturday, March 2, and wrapping up on Sunday, March 9.

After doing away with her "no-repeat" rule for the surprise song set, Taylor has shaken things up completely.

Instead of her traditional two acoustic songs, she has debuted several mashups at her recent tour stops, and Singapore Swifties can likely expect the same.

With her current penchant for chaos in mind, there are endless possibilities for Singapore, but one thing that might help guide the way is her love of pairing songs that connect lyrically or thematically.

Such possible duos could be Clean and it's time to go, long story short and Mary's Song (bonus points if Travis Kelce pays a visit!), and mirrorball and Tied Together with a Smile.

Other potential clues can be derived from her recent selections. While she is willing to repeat songs now, she will likely still want to leave space between their performances.

Which eras will Taylor Swift pull from for her Singapore surprise songs?

One era that hasn't been getting much love in recent shows is Lover, making it a prime candidate for Singapore.

Going with the shared theme theories, It's Nice to Have a Friend could finally make its Eras Tour debut, with Midnight's Glitch (another unplayed pick!) pairing thematically.

While she may not be adhering to her previous rules, it's likely she'll want to give them their moment in the sun – especially the ones on Midnight.

From that era, Paris is the only other unplayed track, perhaps combined with I Know Places?

It's hard to predict anything Taylor does these days, and at this point, we can't even accurately predict just how many songs she'll even play!

Taylor certainly followed through with the anticipated mashups for the first half of her Singapore shows.

Night one kicked off with Mine and Starlight combined on the guitar, followed by I Don't Want to Live Forever and Dress on the piano.

Sunday's performance saw the long-awaited debut of long story short, which was combined with The Story of Us. For the piano number, Taylor played a mashup of Clean and evermore.

On night three, the Karma songstress combined Foolish One and Tell Me Why on the guitar, followed by This Love and Call It What You Want on the piano.

Taylor then returned for the second half of her Singapore stint, diving into a heartbreak-centric mashup of Death by a Thousand Cuts and Babe on the guitar. She then played Fifteen and You're On You're Own, Kid – notably omitting the former's lyric, "In your life, you'll do things greater than dating the boy on the football team," for obvious reasons!

The next night, with her NFL beau in attendance, she sang the swoon-worthy combo of Sparks Fly and gold rush followed by False God and Slut!.

For her final performance in Singapore, Taylor went back to her country roots with Tim McGraw and cowboy like me on the guitar before finishing things off with mirrorball and epiphany on the piano – both from folklore.
