Is Taylor Swift performing at 2023 Super Bowl Halftime show? Swifties excited after NFL's 'midnight' announcement
Swifties may have celebrated a tad too early as reports debunk rumors that Taylor Swift will be performing at the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime show
Update: Contrary to what Swifties may have believed, latest news reports appear to negate the rumors that Taylor Swift is lined up to play the next Super Bowl Halftime show.
TMZ claims its sources have told them that Taylor won't be performing at Super Bowl LVII in Arizona. Fans just put two and two together after Apple Music announced taking over the sponsorship for NFL's Super Bowl halftime show, replacing longtime sponsor Pepsi. Taylor fans went into overdrive thinking that since the singer has previously starred in Apple commercials, she would also be roped in for the performances.
Since the National Football League (NFL) said that they are going to make a major announcement at ‘midnight’, singer Taylor Swift's name has been doing the rounds. According to many fans, this is a hint from the sports body and they believe it means that the 32-year-old singer will be performing during the Super Bowl Halftime Show next year. Interestingly, NFL broke the news of their new Halftime sponsors at ‘midnight’ as well. It was in May when the league announced Apple Music as their sponsor for the 2023 Super Bowl Halftime after Pepsi pulled out.
The connecting factor here is that Taylor Swift is releasing her upcoming album in October, which is titled ‘Midnights’ too. The 'Bad Blood' singer is known for regularly making her announcements at midnight. Moreover, Swift’s 'Midnights Mayhem with Me' series on TikTok is where she has been sharing with her fans every night, track title of the ‘Midnights’ album.
According to another fan theory, Taylor has never performed earlier at the event since Pepsi was the leading sponsor of the event and the singer has been involved with Coca-Cola for a few years now. Both Pepsi and Coca-Cola avoid stepping on each other’s toes. Now, as Pepsi had chosen to bow out, Taylor is free to be part of the NFL halftime list of performers.
One fan tweeted "Finally not blocked by her coca cola duties… swifties start a campaign for taylor QUICKLY." Another fan gushed "If taylor swift does the super bowl halftime show ( ik ik) i will actually melt and turn into a puddle bc i’ve been waiting for this moment for a decade thank you for your consideration." While another wrote "Taylor Swift performing at the Apple Music Super Bowl Halftime Show has a nice ring to it." One fan added "So nice of Taylor if she would let Super Bowl host a halftime show during her concert."

Earlier, the official statement by NFL’s Nana-Yaw Asamoah on the new sponsor read, “We are proud to welcome Apple Music to the NFL family as our new partner for the iconic Super Bowl Halftime Show. We couldn’t think of a more appropriate partner for the world’s most-watched musical performance than Apple Music, a service that entertains, inspires, and motivates millions of people around the world through the intersection of music and technology.”
Some of the big names that performed during this year’s Halftime between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, were Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Dr Dre, Mary J Blige, 50 Cent, and Snoop Dogg. The NFL Super Bowl 56 football game was played on February 13, in Inglewood, California.
