Taylor Swift fans go wild as pop superstar is seen praying just moments before Travis Kelce’s Chiefs come from behind to win Super Bowl
Photos of Taylor Swift praying moments before the Kansas City Chiefs’ big win hit the internet and spawned memes of delighted fans.
Eagle-eyed Swifties spotted the pop sensation with her hands clasped and eyes closed, apparently praying in the crowd.
“Actual photo of Taylor performing Tayvoodoo,” one user on X, formerly Twitter, quipped.
The scene occurred just moments before the Chiefs claimed their fourth Super Bowl victory.
It was her beau Travis Kelce’s third trip to the finals, with the tight end getting a touchdown in all three wins.
Swift was in tow to cheer him on from the sidelines with celebrity friends Ice Spice and Blake Lively.
Fans took to X, formerly Twitter, to congratulate Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce on what some saw as their joint win
The singer-songwriter’s reactions sparked memes throughout the night
Rather than refer to him by name, many Swifties referred to Kelce as “Taylor’s boyfriend.”
“That’s when I knew the Chiefs had it,” another user captioned the photo of the singer praying. “God probably collapsed when they saw Taylor’s name on the caller ID.”
Her reactions sparked memes throughout the night, with many fans considering her as much of a winner as her athlete boyfriend.
‘Taylor Swift Becomes FIRST Female Artist To WIN NFL Super Bowl!!!’ a popular fan account with 45,000 followers mocked.
Swift appeared shocked when Kansas City was named the winner, gasping and putting a hand to her mouth as Lively held her shoulders.
‘TAYLOR IS SHOOK,’ one fan wrote.
‘TAYLOR’S BOYFRIEND DID IT!!’ exclaimed another, tagging the Chiefs.
While the pop star’s followers were more than excited, some sports fans were bitter.
‘Taylor Swift became a sports fan and achieved more success in one season than I have in my entire lifetime. I’m so done,’ an NFL meme page noted.
A 49ers fan complained: ‘Taylor Swift is already a billionaire successful celebrity, then she cares about sports for 3 months and sees her team win a Super Bowl. It’s not fucking fair.’
Dedicated Swifties seemed to share the sentiment, though they were much more enthusiastic.

Clinton previously caught flak for her response to Barbie’s alleged snarkiness at the Oscars, which assured leading lady Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig that they were ‘more than Kenough’.
The most dedicated fans were quick to link Swift’s lucky number, 13, to the Chiefs’ victory.
‘IT WAS THIRTEEN YARDS AND THEN THEY WON YOU CAN’T TELL ME TAYVOODOO ISN’T RIGHT,’ wrote one fan.
‘Taylor’s 13th game. Super Bowl 58 (5+8 = 13). Winning touchdown from the 13-yard line,’ mused another.
‘Date is 02.11 (2+11 = 13). I mean… karma may be a cat, but she’s also a crazy blonde lady and her pet number.’
Some diehard Swifties insisted the Chiefs win was karmic as it came after weeks of abuse from sports fans
“Universe will do anything to see my girl happy and succeed in everything she does,” one fan declared

Many have referred to Swift as ‘the first woman to win the Super Bowl’
Others insisted the victory was Taylor’s doing – while she questioned her alleged abuse by sports enthusiasts.
“The Chiefs had no business winning that game,” one user wrote. “It was God himself who punished NFL fans for crapping on Taylor for most of two weeks, and rewarded Taylor for staying resilient.”
“Given that people would have 100% blamed her if the Chiefs lost, I believe it’s only fair to say that Taylor Swift just single-handedly won the Super Bowl,” another confessed. ‘The first woman to do it. Put some respect on her name.’
Other fans were simply happy to share in their idol’s triumph.
Among the sweet moments circulating online was a video of Swift and Lively wrapped up in a tight hug with the singer grinning from ear to ear.
“Universe will do anything to see my girl happy and succeed in everything she does,” one fan wrote.
“She didn’t do anything,” another user insisted in the comments below. However, the fan remained determined: ‘Chiefs literally won because of her.’
