Taylor Swift performed her weekend shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on an awards season high following the news she’d received six Grammy nominations for her album Midnights — something she cheerfully celebrated onstage with the thousands of fans at Estadio River Plate.
Sitting at her moss-covered piano during the Evermore set of her ongoing Eras Tour, the 33-year-old pop star took a moment to thank Swifties for rallying so hard around her 2022 album. “I started off my morning by getting the extraordinary news that because of you, and because of the way you’ve supported my album Midnights, it just got nominated for six Grammys!” she told the crowd.
Swift went on to do an adorable happy dance to convey how she feels about the half-dozen nods, holding up six fingers and pumping her fists in triumph.
Midnights, which spent six weeks atop the Billboard 200 and became the first album to occupy all 10 of the top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100, received Grammy nominations for album of the year and best pop vocal album in the Friday (Nov. 10) announcement. Its lead single, “Anti-Hero,” is also up for record of the year, song of the year and best pop solo performance, while “Karma” featuring Ice Spice is in the running for best duo/group performance.
Swift set a couple Grammy records this year, becoming the first songwriter in history to earn seven nods for song of the year — although she still hasn’t won in the category — while also tying Barbra Streisand for the most album of the year nominations for a female artist, Midnights marking her sixth AOTY candidate. In addition to the Grammys, the pop superstar is also the top finalist with 20 nods for the 2023 Billboard Music Awards, which will stream on Sunday, Nov. 19. (The BBMAs will stream from BBMAs.watch, as well as Billboard and the BBMAs social channels.)
The Grammy recognition was far from the only newsworthy thing about Swift’s Argentina shows, however. Not only did the singer perform her 1989 (Taylor’s Version) chart-topper “Is It Over Now?” for the first time at the Saturday (Nov. 11) show, but she also changed up the lyrics to “Karma” to give her new beau Travis Kelce a special shoutout: “Karma is the guy on the Chiefs, coming straight home to me.”
Kelce and Swift were spotted kissing after the show, with the musician running into the Kansas City tight end’s arms.
