Taylor Swift doesn’t thank Travis Kelce in Grammys 2024 Acceptance Speeches

Taylor Swift, during her acceptance speeches at the 2024 Grammy Awards, notably did not mention her boyfriend, Travis Kelce. Swift, who was announced by Celine Dion as the Album of the Year winner for “Midnights,” expressed her gratitude on stage alongside Lana Del Rey and Jack Antonoff, praising Antonoff as a “once-in-a-generation producer” and Del Rey as a “legend.” However, Kelce, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end with whom Swift has been romantically linked since the summer, received no acknowledgment in her speeches.

Expressing her passion for music, Swift stated, “All I want to do is keep being able to do this. I love it so much. It makes me so happy.”

Speculation had been rife among Swift’s fans, the Swifties, anticipating the announcement of “Reputation (Taylor’s Version)” at the Grammys, fueled by potential clues in Swift’s recent fashion choices. Over her career, Swift has amassed 52 Grammy nominations, with six in 2024 alone, spanning categories from Best Pop Vocal Album to Album of the Year.

Despite Swift’s omission of Kelce in her speeches, the NFL star was unable to attend the Grammys due to the Chiefs’ preparations for Super Bowl LVIII against the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas. A source informed Page Six of the Chiefs’ rigorous schedule leading up to the game, limiting Kelce’s availability for travel.

Sources close to the couple have expressed to “Entertainment Tonight” their belief in the longevity of Swift and Kelce’s relationship, emphasizing their enjoyment of life’s simple pleasures together and the strong support from their families and friends. The couple’s families, having met during a Chiefs’ game on Christmas Day, reportedly fully support the relationship, with Kelce’s brother, Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles, referring to Swift as part of the family after a public display of affection at the AFC Championship game on January 28.

Swift and Kelce, both 34, made their relationship public in September and have since been seen as a serious couple, with rumors of a potential engagement by their first anniversary in the summer. Swift has been integrating into Kansas City life, spending the holiday season there and bonding with other Chiefs WAGs, notably Brittany Mahomes.

Swift is scheduled to continue her Eras Tour in Tokyo from February 7 to 10, allowing her to return to the U.S. in time to support the Chiefs at the Super Bowl on February 11. Following the Super Bowl, Swift and Kelce will have some time together before she resumes her tour, with Kelce planning to join her for overseas trips along with Brittany and Patrick Mahomes to attend her concerts.
