Taylor Swift Will Be at the 2024 Grammys but Isn’t Performing—Here’s Why

Taylor Swift is up for six Grammy awards this year, including Album of the Year for Midnights and Record of the Year for “Anti-Hero.” The singer will be at the February 4 ceremony in Los Angeles, Us Weekly and Entertainment Tonight reported on Monday, but she will not be performing onstage, despite rumors saying otherwise.

Entertainment Tonight learned the reason why: because she will be resuming her Eras Tour less than three days later on February 7 in Tokyo. There simply isn’t enough time for her to do a Grammys performance, then pick up her world tour on the other side of the world. It’s of course worth noting that the Japanese city is 17 hours ahead of Los Angeles, and is about a 10 hour and 50-minute flight away.

Swift will be returning to the West Coast immediately after her Tokyo shows to attend the Super Bowl. Swift’s boyfriend Travis Kelce is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, who are playing in the February 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas.

A source confirmed to Page Six that, thanks to the time difference, Swift can make it back to Las Vegas in time for the game, despite having a Tokyo concert on February 10. “It’s a brutal flight, but she’ll get on her plane right after the concert,” the source explained.

Kelce and Swift are in a great place as a couple, a source told Entertainment Tonight on Monday. “Taylor and Travis are so excited that the Chiefs and Travis are heading to the Super Bowl,” the insider said. “They’re very in love, and Taylor is super proud of him. They’re both extremely dedicated and hardworking and understand each other. They are relishing in this moment.”
