Taylor Swift fans are convinced pop superstar referenced Travis Kelce’s touchdown celebration with dance move during Eras tour show in Paris

May 11, 2024

Travis Kelce seems to have inspired some of Taylor Swift’s dance moves on tour, or at least her fans are convinced so after videos emerged of the pop star performing in Paris.

Swift, who has been dating Chiefs star Kelce publicly since September, is already thought to have dedicated several songs on her new album to the tight end.

Now, she’s apparently borrowing some of his touchdown celebrations too, as side-by-side videos on X and TikTok show a striking similarity between her moves and Kelce’s.

The moves came during the song ‘So High School,’ which contains fairly obvious references to Kelce such as ‘I feel like laughin in the middle of practice’ and ‘I wanna find you in a crowd…’

And during the track, Swift seemed to mimic some of Kelce’s trademark touchdown celebrations along with her dancers, including an arm-roll.

Her fans were convinced that it wasn’t a coincidence, with one writing, ‘taylor did the so high school choreography with travis i [swear to god].’

Another said, ‘i wonderrrr where she got that move from’ as the caption for another convincing side-by-side clip.

These are not the only recent nods to Kelce and the Chiefs onstage.

Earlier this week – also while performing So High School – she and her dancers ‘swag surfed’, which is signature move done by Chiefs fans at Arrowhead stadium.

She memorably joined the Chiefs Kingdom in doing the move during their playoff win over the Dolphins in January as well.

And previously, One TikTok user pointed out that during Swift’s performance of The Archer throughout her tour, she uses her arms to make it look like she’s shooting off a fake bow and arrow – a move that Travis has also done as a touchdown celebration.

However, the singer is no longer performing The Archer as part of her setlist.

Notably, one of Swift’s background dancers is Kameron Saunders – brother of former Chief Khalen Saunders.

Thursday’s show in Paris marked Swift’s first performance after a two-month break from the record-breaking tour.
