Recent rumors circulating about Taylor Swift’s performance at the 66th annual GRAMMY Awards have been debunked, as it’s been confirmed that while the pop icon will grace the event, she won’t be taking the stage.
According to exclusive information obtained by ET, Swift, 34, will be present at the Feb. 4 awards ceremony, where her album “Midnights” has garnered six nominations.
However, due to her packed schedule and a quick turnaround, she won’t be performing. Instead, she’ll swiftly depart from the show to jet off to Tokyo, Japan, where she’s scheduled for four consecutive sold-out performances as part of her record-breaking Eras Tour.
Swift, a 12-time GRAMMY winner, expressed her gratitude to fans when the nominations were announced back in November.
Amidst her tour in Argentina, she took a moment to acknowledge the overwhelming support for “Midnights,” which shattered records and earned six GRAMMY nods across various categories.
While SZA leads this year’s GRAMMY nominations with nine nods, including recognition for her album “SOS,” other notable contenders in major categories like Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year include Boygenius, Miley Cyrus, Jon Batiste, and Lana Del Rey.
Swift, with a staggering 52 nominations to her name, is vying for several coveted awards, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album.
The 2024 GRAMMY Awards, hosted by comedian Trevor Noah, will be broadcast live from Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on CBS and Paramount+ for Paramount+ with Showtime users on Sunday, Feb. 4 at 8 p.m. EST.
