Taylor Swift fans rejoice!

ABC and Swift announced on Friday that never-before seen performances of the singer's seventh album "Lover" will be aired on May 17.

On Good Morning America, Swift announced that the television special will showcase video from a album release concert that happened in September 2019.

Called "The City of Lover Show," after the name of the concert at the L'Olympia Theater in Paris, France, the special will air Sunday May, 17 at 10/9 CST on ABC following the finale of "American Idol."

"Hey 'Good Morning America,' it's Taylor," a video of Swift began. "Just wanted to say hi. Hope everybody is doing well and happy and healthy and staying safe," she shared in a video message. "So I played this concert in September called 'The City Of Lover Show' and it was in Paris, and it was so much fun."

ABC reports that Swift was forced to cancel all 2020 appearances and performances, including her Lover Fest East and West concerts, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The special will also be available for streaming on Hulu and Disney+ following the premiere.
