Has Taylor Swift officially become an honorary Scot?

Three sold-out Scottish shows at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium attracting a crowd of 73,000 each night surely means she’s on her way.

“This crowd is different huh?” declared the US superstar at her final Scottish date on Sunday night.

After wowing with Cruel Summer – and its now famous bridge – the 34-year-old beamed: “You have decided in the first song that you are going to prove to me that you’re the best crowd.

“This is looking good.”

And with that, the cheers for the star reached new heights as she performed The Man.

Infectious country pop hits You Belong With Me and Love Story quickly followed bringing the entire stadium together to sing in unison.

It was then time for the moments The Era Tour has become known for with Swift delicately placing her bowler hat on a young girl’s head during a performance of 22 sending her into hysterics.

But it was dancer Kam Saunders who of course stole the spotlight again during We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together as he put on his best Scottish accent to scream, ‘Bolt Ya Rocket’ for the diss part of the song. He delighted fans on previous nights with ‘Nae Chance’ and ‘Ya Wee Radge’ proving that Swift’s team did their research on Scottish slang.

It wasn’t however a patch on the research by the Swifties who get an A everytime for effort, knowing every word of every song of every era.

It was beautiful to see complete strangers swap friendship bracelets, compliment outfits, and pull out hearts with their hands in unison for their love of Swift.

Their fandom makes her more than a singer, more than a superstar and it’s a gorgeous sight to see people coming together celebrating music.

Champagne Problems proved to be a moment to remember and had Swift reminiscing about how she thought she might never see the day the song was performed live after she wrote it during Covid.

After showing off the prowess of her voice on the ballad, taken aback Swift said: “I am never gonna forget this crowd.”

And they won’t forget her given that she has now entered Bruce Springsteen territory performing for more than three and a half hours, a rarity by musicians.

It was thrilling to see her keep up the pace with both her energy and stage presence proving why she is a global superstar.

Style, Blank Space, and Shake It Off entertained with high-energy choreography while the Post Malone featured Fortnight showcased the new era of Swift.

Although her time in Scotland has been short, we can all agree Swiftmania has taken over the whole country. And rightly so, she put on a show very few will forget.

Swifties, where can I sign up to join your gang?
