Taylor Swift: surprise guest at the Super Bowl halftime show?

Taylor Swift has been something of a secret mascot of the NFL for some time now. The pop superstar can often be seen cheering in the Kansas City Chiefs’ VIP box. Iconic scenes of this football season because the singer is linked to Kansas tight end Travis Kelce.

Since Sunday (January 28th) we have known that Swift will also be an eye-catcher at the Super Bowl (takes place on February 11th) because her boyfriend is currently in top shape and his team was indisposed to a win with a series of caught balls against the Baltimore Ravens carried to the NFL final in the AFC championship game.

So if Kelce scores in two weeks, the musician, as a noble fan, will once again stretch her arms in the air and laugh with happiness and pride. Scenes that are now part of almost every Chiefs game. But is there more? After all, the Super Bowl is famous for its spectacular halftime show, most recently with an elegant and very pregnant Rihanna.

Rapper Usher will be at the center of the mini-concert during halftime of the final at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. It is the 44-year-old’s first solo appearance at the Super Bowl after he had a brief guest appearance with the Black Eyed Peas in 2011.

Super Bowl halftime show 2024: Taylor Swift alongside Usher?

There has been speculation for weeks about who could appear as a guest alongside Usher. Names like Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, Justin Bieber and David Guetta were mentioned. They have all performed with him in the past. But now Taylor Swift could come into focus. It is obvious that she is attracting a new, young audience who may only be watching football for the first time because of the singer’s proximity to the Kansas City Chiefs. Of course, this didn’t go unnoticed by the NFL.

And so the 34-year-old, who is currently going from one career high to the next, could steal the show, even if she only had a small vocal performance. That should then surpass any emotional outburst in the stands and make the half-time break, which was already announced as a spectacular number, one of the most exciting in recent years.

In recent years, the NFL has repeatedly managed to ensure that not a tiny detail about the performance was revealed until the start of the halftime show (around 1:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. German time). If Taylor Swift is really scheduled to appear on stage here, you probably won’t find out beforehand.

However, when the singer is at the Super Bowl – whether live at the microphone or “just” in the box – she needs outstanding time management. Because Swift is performing in Tokyo just 24 hours beforehand. There is a mere 17 hour time difference between Las Vegas and the Japanese metropolis! For the Kansas noble fan, that would mean that after an 11-hour flight she would have to jet straight to the stadium. But what is currently impossible for the power woman?
