According to reports, Taylor Swift will not be present at this weekend’s 66th annual Grammy Awards.
According to People, Swift’s 34-year-old tour schedule prevents her from performing live.
Swift’s next leg on her Eras Tour is scheduled to take her directly to Japan, as People reports. Her performances in Tokyo are set for February 7, 8, 9, and 10.
After that, the singer will spend the remainder of the month performing in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.
Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Album of the Year are among the six Grammys that Swift is vying for.
Taylor’s highly regarded album Midnights and its lead track Anti-Hero, which garnered some of the finest reviews of her career, were the main reasons for her nomination.
The song was nominated for Song of the Year, which honours songwriters, and Record of the Year, which honours the artists who recorded the song along with its producers and engineers.
For writing Anti-Hero, Taylor and her frequent partner Jack Antonoff received a Song of the Year nomination.
For the song, she was also nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance, and for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, she was nominated for her duet with Ice Spice, Karma.
Her other nominations included one for Album of the Year, one of the top awards, and Best Pop Vocal Album for Midnights.
In the Album of the Year category, where she is now tied for three prior victories with legendary singers and musicians Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, and Stevie Wonder, the Eras Tour artist is set to create history.
However, if Midnights succeeds, she might become the first person to win in the category four times at the 2024 event.
For most of the year, Swift will be on her international tour; her last performance of 2024 is slated for December 8 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
By the end of 2024, she will be in the United States, making three dates in early November in Indianapolis after spending the entire month of October in Miami and New Orleans.
Travis Kelce, Swift’s boyfriend, reportedly stated that he will not be attending the Grammy Awards in order to support his girlfriend due to Kansas City Chiefs practice leading up to the Super Bowl.
“I wish I could go and support Taylor at the Grammys and watch her win every single award that she is nominated for,” Kelce stated on the Pat McAfee show on Wednesday.
However, I believe I have practice on Sunday; is Sunday a travel day? No, I have practice on Saturday, and Sunday is my day off. I have to prepare for this historic Super Bowl.
The 34-year-old tight end will travel to Las Vegas the same weekend as the biggest award show in the music business, which is scheduled to happen on Sunday at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
