It’s the pop star’s first time visiting and playing in the country
Taylor Swift celebrated her just announced six Grammy nominations during her Saturday show in Argentina, one of her three-day stints in Buenos Aires where she has resumed her Eras tour after a ten-week break between tour legs.
“I started off my morning by getting the extraordinary news that because of you and because of the way you have supported my album, Midnights, it just got nominated for six Grammys,” she said on Saturday, tossing in some seated celebratory dance moves while at a piano. The announcement was met with the crowd chanting “Olé, Olé, Olé,” as fan clips showcase.
The pop star launched her three-day run in Argentina on Thursday, sharing with fans how excited she was to visit and perform in the country for her first time. She added that she was “so incredibly lucky” and thanked fans because all three of the shows at Estadio Más Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti (also known as Estadio River Plate) in Buenos Aires had sold out, as fan footage reveals. While her set on Friday was canceled due to inclement weather (it has been moved to Sunday), she was able to celebrate her Grammy nods at her Saturday concert.
On Friday, Swift became the most-nominated Song of the Year nominee in Grammy history after receiving a nod for “Anti-Hero.” Swift also tied the record (alongside Barbra Streisand) for most nominations in the Album of the Year category for a female artist, with a nod for Midnights. “Anti Hero” is also up for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Meanwhile, Midnights is also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album, and “Karma” with Ice Spice is vying for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
