Taylor Swift’s “22” hat moments have been a trademark throughout her Eras Tour.

During Swift’s record-breaking tour, which kicked off in March 2023, fans have experienced plenty of unforgettable moments, from sharing friendship bracelets to seeing Swift’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce, take the stage. Some of the most magical interactions, however, come during Swift’s Red set when she selects one lucky fan to receive the black hat she wears with her costume.

One such moment involved ​​9-year-old Julissa Vargas, who told NBC San Diego in May that she thought she was being led “to the exit” before stopping “in front of the stage” during an Eras Tour show in Paris.

“And then I finally realized what was happening,” Julissa recalled. “I could only hear the part where [Taylor] says, ‘Can I give you a hug?’ and she also said, ‘Thank you for coming.’”

During a show in Sydney, Swift gifted the coveted “22” hat to Scarlett Oliver, a 9-year-old fan battling cancer. Scarlett’s stepmother, Natalie, had previously shared Scarlett’s wish to meet the superstar.

“Scarlett is a 9-year-old from Perth, and she was diagnosed in October last year with a high grade glioma — this is a very aggressive brain cancer with no cure,” she wrote on a Swift fan site ahead of the concert.

Natalie, who revealed that Scarlett was given a prognosis of “12-18 months from diagnosis,” added that “Scarlett is so excited and would absolutely love to receive the 22 hat from Taylor (as would everyone else I’m sure).”

When the “Love Story” singer approached the girl in Sydney during the performance, Scarlett overflowed with joy as they embraced.

A little girl at Principality Stadium in Wales proved to be the lucky one when she was caught wearing the same shirt as Swift during the Red set, which rotates each night. Both Swift and the young fan had the words “Not a Lot Going on at the Moment” on their T-shirts.

Swift, who at first didn’t realize they were matching, pulled at her own shirt to acknowledge the coincidence, prompting cheers from the audience. She then gave the girl multiple high fives before resuming her song.

In Amsterdam, Swift gave a fan and one of her family members the thrill of their lives when she acknowledged the two of them during “22.”

The fan, a young girl, was seen wide-eyed on the stadium video board as she sang and danced to the lyrics, appearing to grow more excited as Swift approached. The two hugged before Swift leaned over the stage to give a high-five to one of the girl’s family members. She then gave the fan her hat, and the two exchanged a two-handed high-five.
