The one and only Taylor Swift is set to open the 2018 American Music Awards tonight with a performance of her song “I Did Something Bad.” While fans can’t wait to see the songstress slay the stage, there’s something else they’re all waiting to see from her. And it all comes down to who her plus one will be. See, tonight might just be the night the 28-year-old songstress and her longtime boyfriend Joe Alwyn make their official awards show debut as a couple. Or so everyone is hoping!
The AMAs’ official Twitter account shared a glimpse at the seating chart for the big show. Tay will be next to her BFF Camila Cabello, and there’s an empty seat between her and the 21-year-old “Havana” singer.

Naturally, everyone is wondering who that empty seat belongs to. Could it be for Joe?! While Taylor has been known to bring her mom, dad, brother, and longtime friends as her dates to award shows, there was the one time she sat next to then-boyfriend Calvin Harris at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. So maybe, just maybe, she’ll be snuggling up to Joe all night! But since these two are very big on keeping their relationship as private as possible, we don’t want to get our hopes up too high. And as Camila shared on Instagram, she’s bringing her dad as her date, so that seat could easily be going to Papa Cabello.
Perhaps Taylor and Camila’s mutual bud Shawn Mendes could even be sitting between the girls. The trio hung out together at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, and it was basically the definition of #SquadGoals.
Or, maybe that seat is going to Selena Gomez? Sel and Tay walked the Grammys red carpet together back in 2016, and they’ve sat together at many shows together in the past. Selena isn’t scheduled to appear at the AMAs this year – but hey, you never know! Although, actual photos of Taylor and her bae Joe would be the dream here. We’ll just have to wait and see.
