OMG! Travis kelce & fans WELCOMED Taylor Swift to Fifth Third Arena with a passionate dance’s ‘Shake It Off’.

Travis Kelce busted a move to girlfriend Taylor Swift’s song “Shake It Off” at his and his brother Jason Kelce’s “New Heights Live: We Gotta Talk About It” show Thursday at Fifth Third Arena in Cincinnati.

During a round of the Lombaby Games — a competition he and Jason created for the event, the Kansas City Chiefs player was seen grooving as a marching band played the pop star’s hit track.

“That’s one of my favorites,” he could be heard telling the crowd in a TikTok video posted from the show.

Swift, 34, was not seen at the event, which Page Six attended, but she was not expected to be one of the surprise guests — even though she is currently on hiatus from the international leg of her Eras Tour.

The “Bad Blood” singer reportedly has been focused on “rest and recuperation” during her much-needed time off, and also squeezed in some quality time with friends at a recent birthday party in Los Angeles.

However, the Kelce brothers, who returned to their home state of Ohio for the live podcast taping, did bring out Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and Travis’ former Chiefs teammate Orlando Brown Jr. as special guests.

Their parents, Ed Kelce and Donna Kelce, and Jason’s wife, Kylie Kelce, were also seen supporting the NFL stars at the show.

Fifth Third Arena is just outside of Nippert Stadium, where the event was originally supposed to be held prior to weather complications. The stadium holds a special place for Travis, 34, and Jason, 36, as its where the brothers played college football for the University of Cincinnati (UC).

Jason went to school there from 2006 to 2011 before being drafted to the Philadelphia Eagles his senior year, and Travis attended UC from 2008 to 2012 before being drafted to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013.

The Lombaby Games got the audience excited with silly competitions that required contestants to do things like pin a mustache on an Andy Reid cutout and ride a bull while answering trivia.

Jason teased the event on “New Heights” in March, saying, “One of the beautiful things about doing this on a college campus, you want the college atmosphere, you want the students involved, the student athletes involved, so we’re going to have two teams of UC students.

“I’m not going to lie. I got this idea from ‘Revenge of the Nerds.’ Football team versus the nerds. Not saying the nonathletic guys are nerds unless you like to be called a nerd.”

The retired Eagles center said at the time that the teams would face off in fun but “ridiculous” games.

Ultimately, the nerds took the win on Thursday during the Lombaby Games.

Thousands of people came out to support the Kelce brothers for their live podcast event, and Swifties were certainly among those in the crowd.

Travis and Jason have both previously recognized how Swift’s fandom has brought even more success to their “New Heights” podcast, which they launched in September 2022.

After winning Podcast of the Year at 2024 iHeartPodcast Awards in March, Jason said in an acceptance speech, “To receive an award like this is beyond humbling, and we would be remiss if we didn’t immediately thank all the 92 percenters out there — aka Swifties — who voted for us to win this award.”

The pro athletes have mentioned or alluded to Swift in several of their podcast episodes.

Travis sang a line from the Grammy winner’s hit “Bad Blood” on the show in March, and he also gushed about his trip to Singapore, where he saw her perform on her Eras Tour, in another episode that same month.

The love is mutual, though, because Swift has proven she listens to the podcast and is part of the 92 percenters fandom.

In January, the “Lover” singer subtly “liked” an Instagram video of Travis and Jason chatting about the latter’s wild shirtless behavior at the Chiefs’ game versus the Buffalo Bills, which Swift attended.

New episodes of the “New Heights” podcast drop every Wednesday.
