Trevor Noah's hilarious jokes about Taylor Swift win over fans(X)
Trevor Noah, the lively comedian and four-time host of the Grammys, didn’t hold back on teasing Taylor Swift, one of the night’s biggest stars. Despite Swift’s six nominations and a performance of her hit ‘All Too Well’ with Phoebe Bridgers, Noah playfully targeted her throughout the show.
As Swift, accompanied by collaborator Jack Antonoff, entered the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, Noah humorously remarked, “Are you seeing what’s happening right now? As Taylor Swift moves through the room, the local economy around those tables improves.”

Noah also addressed recent NFL fan complaints about cameras focusing on Swift during games featuring her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs. He defended Swift, saying, “I think it is so unfair how NFL fans have been complaining about the cameras panning to Taylor Swift like she’s controlling the cameras at the game. Just let her live!”
In a witty retaliation, Noah announced his plan to get revenge on behalf of Swift by doing the opposite. “Every time they mention Taylor Swift, I’m gonna cut the cameras to someone who plays football. Cut, bam.” The camera then shifted to former NFL player and actor Terry Crews, who appeared both confused and amused by the playful prank.
‘Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome…Taylor Swift’
Trevor Noah continued to playfully jest about Taylor Swift throughout the night, including introducing her performance with a humorous remark: “Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the woman who makes me feel like I need to get my life together: Taylor Swift.”
Swift appeared to enjoy Noah’s humor, laughing and clapping along with his jokes. She expressed gratitude for his hosting skills when accepting the Album of the Year award for her surprise release, “Evermore.”
“Thank you so much, Trevor. You’re amazing,” she said.
Noah’s quips about Swift garnered positive reactions on social media, with many fans praising his approach to humor. Some even suggested a potential collaboration between Noah and Swift on a comedy or musical project.
One fan tweeted, “Trevor Noah and Taylor Swift need to do a Netflix special together. They are hilarious and adorable.”
Another fan wrote, “Trevor Noah is the best host ever. He’s so funny and charming. And he loves Taylor Swift. What more can you ask for?”
