Much of the beginning of the broadcast showcased the musician’s attendance, including the game’s announcers welcoming Swifties to the game.
“The Voice” host Carson Daly also presented a package from the set of the reality competition show, which was meant to introduce Swift fans to the game and give a rundown on Kelce. It included plenty of puns based on her song titles and was soundtracked to “Welcome to New York,” referencing the Kansas City Chiefs’ game against the New York Jets.
The broadcast also noted how sidelined Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who attended the game for the first time since his season-ending injury in the first game of the season, attended Swift’s Eras Tour over the summer, alongside his friend Miles Teller.
Several times too the broadcasters in the booth and on the field referred to the game as “star-studded.”
After the Chiefs scored their first touchdown, the camera cut quickly to Swift, who was seen hugging those around her.
There was also a commercial break early in the game which showcased the theatrical run of Swift’s Eras Tour concert movie, along with footage of the singer-songwriter appearing on a billboard in Times Square.
