Taylor Swift has graced many award shows and ceremonies with stunning performances throughout the years. However, she regularly turned down the option of performing at America’s biggest sporting event, the Super Bowl, time and time again. While the singer has claimed to have had her valid reasons for not making it in 2023 and this year, her budding relationship with Travis Kelce might just change that.

While Swift might be one to make her own decisions, her foray into the NFL fan world could change her stance on taking the halftime show stage at the sporting event somewhere down the line.

Over the years, the Super Bowl halftime show has seen performances from many legendary musicians. Fans have tuned in to catch stars like Shakira, Beyoncé, Maroon 5, Michael Jackson, and even Rihanna take the stage. With Taylor Swift being one of the biggest pop artists alive, the NFL had wanted to book her for the show. However, the 34-year-old has claimed that she had other commitments to stay true to.

Why Taylor Swift has not performed at the Super Bowl

In 2022, Taylor Swift was offered a chance to perform at the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show. The invitation came when Apple Music became the official sponsor. While she had declined it as she was working on her album re-recordings at first, they countered her with an offer to take the stage at the 2024 event. The singer once again ended up turning down the invitation because of her long-term partnership deal with Coca-Cola.

With Pepsi no longer the sponsor, fans had hoped the singer would change her mind, but they had no such luck. However, months after the let-down, the world was shocked to see Swift at Arrowhead Stadium, supporting NFL star Travis Kelce from the stands. The singer now has all the more reason to take over the halftime stage eventually, but fans will have to wait and see how this one plays out.

While it might be a long wait before the 34-year-old gets asked to perform at the Super Bowl once again, that could just give Kelce enough time to try to convince the pop sensation to give fans what they want.

Can Travis Kelce convince Taylor Swift to headline the Super Bowl?

Once Taylor Swift had turned down not one, but two invitations to perform at the Super Bowl, fans lost hope that the day would come. However, last year, the singer stunned the world in September at one of Travis Kelce’s NFL matches. With the singer’s beau making his way into his second title decider in two years and hopes for more, Swifties, the sporting league, and more are hoping the Kansas City Chiefs star can change her mind.

Unfortunately, it does not seem too likely as the ‘Mean’ singer has planned a world tour. While Swift might someday take the halftime stage, fans are going to have to wait until the singer is done with ‘The Eras Tour’ and the promotion of her newly announced album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’, before that day finally comes.

How a Taylor Swift halftime show could benefit the Super Bowl

Ever since Taylor Swift broke into the NFL world, the singer has had all eyes on her. While the league seems to love the attention, some of the hardcore football fans were not too pleased. Although her appearances may have brought about a debate, they ended up benefitting not just the league but also Travis Kelce and the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs team. With the singer raking in a massive hike in viewership and sales numbers, a performance at the Super Bowl could completely change the game.

Not only will the 34-year-old have more female viewers tuning in to catch her in action, but could also send ticket sales through the roof. After all, with just a few appearances and some fashionable team merchandise, the singer and Kelce’s relationship increased the NFL’s revenue in the last year.
