Fans will see Taylor Swift hit the stage again when ABC airs the all-new “Taylor Swift City of Lover Concert” on Sunday, immediately after the season finale of “American Idol.”

The special will be made available for streaming the next day on Hulu and Disney+.

The concert was filmed in September 2019 at L’Olympia Theater in Paris and features Swift performing songs from “Lover” not long after it became her fifth consecutive release to top the Billboard album chart.

In addition to the concert, the special offers fans unprecedented access to behind-the-scenes moments with the artist.

It’s also the closest anyone will come to seeing Swift in concert this year now that she’s canceled her Lover Fest tour due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Lover” was the biggest-selling album of 2019, outselling any album any artist had released since Swift’s “Reputation” hit the streets and pop charts in 2017.

Rolling Stone hailed “’Lover” as “a career-topping masterpiece,” raving, “The superstar’s writing is better than it’s ever been.” Vulture said, “The old Taylor is back” while calling it “the best she’s been in years.”
