Taylor Swift’s Grammy Triumph: Taking the stage in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for her weekend shows, Taylor Swift found herself on a high note amid awards season acclaim, having earned six Grammy nominations for her album “Midnights.” In a moment of joyous celebration during the Evermore set of her ongoing Eras Tour, the 33-year-old pop sensation expressed her gratitude to the thousands of fans at Estadio River Plate.
Seated at her moss-covered piano, Swift, known for her intimate connection with Swifties, took a pause to thank her dedicated fans for their unwavering support of her 2022 album. With infectious enthusiasm, she shared the extraordinary news, I started off my morning by getting the extraordinary news that because of you, and because of the way youve supported my album ‘Midnights,’ it just got nominated for six Grammys! This revelation was met with an adorable happy dance, as Swift joyfully held up six fingers, pumping her fists in triumph.
“Midnights,” a chart-topping album that spent six weeks at the summit of the Billboard 200, received Grammy nominations for album of the year and best pop vocal album. The lead single, Anti-Hero, also earned nods for record of the year, song of the year, and best pop solo performance. Additionally, Karma featuring Ice Spice is in contention for best duo/group performance.
Swift’s Grammy achievements this year include setting a record as the first songwriter in history to earn seven nods for song of the year. Despite not yet winning in the category, she also tied Barbra Streisand for the most album of the year nominations for a female artist, with “Midnights” marking her sixth AOTY candidate. Beyond the Grammys, Swift leads as the top finalist with 20 nods for the 2023 Billboard Music Awards, streaming on Sunday, Nov. 19.
However, the Grammy recognition wasn’t the only highlight of Swift’s Argentina shows. The singer treated fans to the first-ever live performance of her chart-topping “Is It Over Now?” from “1989 (Taylors Version).” In another delightful twist, she playfully altered the lyrics of “Karma” to give a special shoutout to her new beau, Travis Kelce: Karma is the guy on the Chiefs, coming straight home to me.
Adding a touch of romance to the evening, Swift and Kelce were spotted sharing a kiss after the show, capturing the attention of fans as the musician ran into the arms of the Kansas City Chiefs tight end.
