By John Mercury February 12, 2024

Taylor Swift’s much-anticipated appearance at the Super Bowl was marked by her downing a beer and celebrating a dramatic victory for her boyfriend’s team, the Kansas City Chiefs.

The singer was repeatedly shown on the big screens of Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium and the cameras caught her winning what appeared to be a beer-chugging contest, prompting cheers from the crowd.

Swift made it to the stadium after traveling across nine time zones from the last of four shows at the Tokyo Dome in Japan, with self-proclaimed Swifties across the globe speculating about the potential strain on her schedule for weeks.

The singer has been criticised for her use of private planes by climate activists and appears to have sold one of her two personal jets over a dispute with a student who had been tracking her flights.

The 34-year-old and Kelce have been dating since around September 2023.

She was later spotted at an after-party singing along to a remix of her 2008 hit You Belong With Me.

Before kick-off the “Queen of Country” Reba McEntire sang The Star-Spangled Banner, while Andra Day gave a rousing rendition of Lift Every Voice And Sing, a song that has become known as the black national anthem.

Alicia Keys joined him in front of a red piano resembling an abstract sculpture for her song If I Ain’t Got You, which morphed into My Boo.

Usher also brought out several other guests including HER and Jermaine Dupri, with Lil Jon joining for Turn Down For What and Yeah!, with Ludacris putting in a guest appearance.

Adverts during the Super Bowl also saw Beyonce tease a new album, with her ad for Verizon ending with the superstar saying: “They ready, drop the new music.”

Later, a cryptic Instagram video appeared on her page teasing Act II – her previous album Renaissance is frequently referred to as Act I: Renaissance – and she released two new country tracks.

She was joined at the Super Bowl with her husband Jay Z and their children Blue Ivy and Rumi.
