Taylor Swift has changed up her Eras Tour setlist and there's now a 'So High School' performance dedicated to Travis Kelce.

Ever since 'The Tortured Poets Department' came out, fans have been obsessed with 'So High School'. The album contains multiple songs inspired by Taylor's breakups with Joe Alwyn and Matty Healy but there are also two love songs that appear to be about her relationship with Travis Kelce. 'The Alchemy' and 'So High School' are both filled with Travis references.

Now, Taylor has made the Travis references in 'So High School' even clearer with her performance of the song on The Eras Tour. Here's a breakdown of all the nods Taylor makes to Travis in her 'So High School' performance.

In 'So High School', Taylor sings about how falling in love with Travis makes her feel like she's in high school all over again.

In the opening verse, Taylor alludes to a famous Travis interview in which he played 'Marry, Kiss, Kill' with Taylor before he met her. Taylor sings: Are you gonna marry, kiss, or kill me / It's just a game, but really / I'm bettin' on all three for us two. Making an even clearer reference to who the song is about, Taylor then gives a nod to their careers in the bridge, adding: You know how to ball, I know Aristotle.

Now, @analiaogs has pointed out on TikTok that Taylor's performance of 'So High School' is overflowing with references to Travis, the Kansas City Chiefs and their relationship. Here's the full list:

  • There are stadium light props in the performance similar to football stadium lights
  • The dancers sit and dance on props laid out like bleachers during the performance
  • Taylor reenacts giggling with Blake Lively at Travis' games with her dancers
  • Taylor points to the audience similar to how she points at Travis at his games
  • There's cheerleader choreography dotted throughout the performance
  • The dancers reenact Travis' famous touchdown dance
  • There's 'Swag Surfin'' in the choreo which is a nod to Chiefs fans
  • The dancers reneact Travis' other touchdown dance
  • Taylor reenacts Travis' teammate Patrick Mahomes waving at her
  • Another Travis dance move is featured in the choreography
  • There are red and yellow lights in the Chiefs' colours
  • The bracelets in the crowd also flash red and yellow throughout the brief performance
