8-year-old Girl Describes the ‘Incredible’ Experience of Being Lifted by Jason Kelce to Attend Taylor Swift’s Event

An 8-year-old girl devised a plan to meet Taylor Swift, and with the assistance of future Hall of Famer Jason Kelce, she achieved a priceless viral moment.

Ella Piazza, a determined third-grader and devoted Swiftie from Rochester, New York, seized a brief but memorable opportunity to meet Swift at the Kansas City Chiefs-Buffalo Bills playoff game over the weekend. Armed with a sign expressing her admiration for the singer, Ella found herself approaching Swift’s luxury box.

To her surprise, Jason Kelce, the brother of Swift’s boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, spotted Ella and lifted her onto his shoulders to ensure she had her moment with Swift. Ella joyfully recounted the experience on NBC’s “TODAY” show, describing it as “amazing.”

Ella’s mother, Jessica Piazza, shared the excitement, stating that Ella was the happiest she had ever seen her. Ella had brought a homemade sign that read, “Buffalo Bills + Taylor Swift Best First Game Ever!!” and proudly showed it to Swift during their encounter.

The Piazza family had initially secured tickets on the opposite side of the stadium from Swift’s location. However, a family friend with seats near Swift’s party allowed Ella and her mom to drop by at halftime for their unlikely chance to meet Taylor.

Despite the seemingly insurmountable odds, Ella had been confidently telling her friends at school that she would meet Swift at the game. Her mother, aware of the distance between their seats and the Kelces, didn’t want to dampen Ella’s spirits.

Expressing gratitude to Jason Kelce for his kindness, Jessica Piazza recounted how he made the moment possible. She thanked him for giving Ella the opportunity to see Taylor Swift, noting Ella’s bravery as she climbed to the top of the bleachers, eagerly awaiting the encounter.

In a true Swiftie fashion, Ella traded friendship bracelets with the hosts of the “TODAY” show—Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, and Craig Melvin—during her appearance on the set.
