Is Taylor Swift performing at the 2024 Grammy Awards show?
Taylor Swift could have a very big night at the Grammys, with six nominations including Album of the Year for “Midnights.” If she clinches that category it would be her fourth career win for Album of the Year, the most for any artist. She’s also making headlines for her hugely successful Eras Tour and her romance with the Kansas Chiefs’ Travis Kelce.
But will she perform at the Grammys? While a surprise can’t be completely ruled out, Taylor Swift has not been announced as a performer.
