Can Taylor Swift make it to the Super Bowl by kickoff — and could she perform at halftime?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — The Kansas City Chiefs are heading to Super Bowl LVIII to go up against the San Francisco 49ers, and lots of people are wondering if Taylor Swift will even be able to make it.

Swift will be on tour in Tokyo, from February 7-10. That final day, Saturday, February 10, is the day before the big game in Las Vegas. So the big question is: will Taylor make it in time?

Let’s break down the math.

Swift’s show begins at 6 p.m. JST (Japan Standard Time) on that Saturday. The show lasts about three-and-a-half hours, but we will say four just to give it some extra time.

Let’s say by the time Swift wraps up her concert and gets on her jet, it’s midnight on February 11th. Since Tokyo is 17 hours ahead of Las Vegas, that would make it 7 a.m. on Saturday in Nevada.

Once Swift is in the air, the flight from Tokyo to Las Vegas takes between 12 and 13 hours.

That puts her in Sin City by 8 p.m. on Saturday, February 10, just in time to get a little more rest ahead of the big game on Sunday.

So time traveler Taylor Swift could make it to see her boyfriend play in the biggest game of the year and all eyes will be out to see if she confirms her attendance. Representatives for Swift didn’t immediately respond to Nexstar’s request for comment.

Will Taylor Swift perform at the Super Bowl?

This is also probably a question you’ve heard or maybe even asked yourself.

First of all, she may be tired from already performing multiple nights in a row in Tokyo. And from the long flight, if she doesn’t catch any shuteye.

Second, the Super Bowl already has its performers. Reba McEntire will sing the national anthem, Post Malone is set to perform “America the Beautiful,” and Andra Day will sing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” as part of the pregame performances.

Usher will headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Sources told TMZ on Monday that Swift will not perform at all during the Super Bowl (though she may do a little Chiefs Swag Surfin’ again).

That’s not to say Usher will be performing alone. Since he’s had hits with the likes of Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, and Ludacris, there is a chance any of them could make a surprise appearance during his performance.

Whether you’re hoping to see Swift at the big game, Usher perform “Yeah!” with Lil Jon and Ludacris, or just plain old football, you’ll have to wait until Super Bowl LVIII kicks off at 6:30 p.m. EST on Sunday, February 11.
