Photos of the singer, who had two bodyguards with her during the process, began circulating on social media late Monday morning.

“We went into a room [and] we were kind of crammed in there. There was a big board table in the middle and we sat there and people started asking her questions and just talking to her,” said fellow potential juror Katie Caplenor.

“She talked to everybody and was very nice and she was just there to do her civic duty like the rest of us,” Caplenor continued.

Michael Washington, who was also called for jury duty on Monday, said also Swift was just a normal there to do her civic duty.

“She waited her turn, waited for her name to get called; she followed the rules and steps like everyone else. And she did what she had to do,” Washington explained.

Swift was ultimately dismissed around 1 p.m. due to pending litigation involving another case, which is a standard dismissal by law.

She can’t be called again in Davidson County for 24 months.

Swift launched her country career in Nashville in 2006 before releasing her first pop album, “1989,” in 2014.
