The buzz surrounding the couple intensified as they were spotted holding hands in New York City just hours before the show's taping.

Kelce, having previously graced the SNL stage as a host last season, conveyed the exhilarating feeling of returning to the iconic set. The surprise took center stage when the cast cleverly devised a skit, playfully teasing the media frenzy around Kelce's relationship with Swift, catching the NFL player off guard.
Despite the unforeseen nature of the comedic act, Kelce conveyed a genuine sense of honor and appreciation for the invitation to participate in this amusing moment. The skit itself saw SNL cast members portraying NFL commentators unable to resist incorporating references to Taylor Swift into their banter. The Anti Hero musician, on the other hand, graced the stage to present the musical number for the evening, with her friend Ice Spice taking the spotlight as the night's musical act.

On the New Heights podcast, Kelce revealed, "We showed up at SNL, having the idea of showing up to support Ice Spice. She and Taylor are friends. I always wanted to meet Pete Davidson. I've been a fan of his for some time. It was electric to be back in that place. There's something about being in that room, being in the first episode of the season, I had such a fricking blast. It was a star-studded backroom, but I'm not one to be throwing out names. It was awesome. Lorne Michaels, thanks for having us, it was a pleasure. I didn't know what skits were coming up, I think it was just ironic they were doing a skit on 'Swift Mania', but I thought it was hilarious and when they asked me to be a part of it I said I'd be honored. Taylor then made her cameo introducing her friend Ice Spice, who killed it," as he decided to address the budding romance between him and Swift.
