Multiple publications have stated that the six-time nominee will not be participating due to her Eras tour schedule. According to Billboard, Swift will go overseas directly after the Grammys to begin the Japanese portion of her tour, which begins on Wednesday, February 7 and ends on the 10th.
Swift representatives did not immediately answer to Digital’s request for comment on the subject. Swift is nominated for six Grammys, including album of the year, best pop vocal album, best pop solo performance, song of the year, record of the year, and best pop duo/group performance for her remix of “Karma” with Ice Spice.
The “Anti-Hero” singer might become the first artist to win album of the year four times if she wins the accolade for “Midnights.” Swift will also be flying alone for the event, without Travis Kelce on her arm.
Kelce stated on ESPN Radio’s “The Pat McAfee Show” that he would be unable to attend, stating, “I wish I could go support Taylor at the Grammys and watch her win every single award that she’s nominated for, but I believe I have practice on Sunday or Sunday is a travel day.” “I got to get ready for this big ole Super Bowl we have in a week.”
Swift confirmed last week that she will attend the Super Bowl in Las Vegas after her concert in Japan on February 10th. To watch Kelce play, she’ll have to fly from Tokyo to Las Vegas, which takes 11 hours. Due to the 14-hour time difference, she may arrive in Sin City on Saturday evening, February 10.
The “Lover” singer will not be alone at the Grammys, however. The seating plan for the evening was revealed on CBS’ TikTok, with Swift sitting next to buddy and “Snow on the Beach” collaborator Lana Del Rey, who is also a candidate.
Fans also noted that Swift may have a big announcement planned for the evening, after she changed her profile pictures on social media from a color image from “Midnights” to a black and white version of the photo.
The change prompted speculation that the singer could announce the release date for her re-recorded version of “Reputation,” one of the last two albums left on her re-record schedule.
