Videos of Julia Roberts at Taylor Swift's Eras Tour concert have been going viral online for two distinct reasons: Her new hair and her interaction with Swift's beau. While some netizens were pleased by her appearance at the show, others cited their inability to recognize her and questioned her exchange with Travis Kelce.

All ready to "Shake It Off" and have a good time at Taylor Swift's Eras Tour concert, iconic actress Julia Roberts was spotted among the crowd at the talented singer's show in Dublin, Ireland. The "Pretty Woman" star, now sporting a new hair color, attended the Dublin show on the third night, June 30, and while some are swooning over the viral moment, others feel differently.

Roberts, who kept it casually chic with her ensemble, which included a black blazer, glasses, necklaces, and bracelets, stole the show. The gracious talent, who has opted to go blonde, took time to greet fans and take selfies with them.

Several videos and pictures show her reaching out to touch the hands of admirers with a big smile from the VIP tent. In one instance, she even appeared to gift a fan a bracelet before leaning back and blowing a kiss out to the hoards of people who were ecstatic to see her.

Naturally, wanting to publicize the legendary moment, a media outlet took to Instagram to post about the event. "#JuliaRoberts had quite the time at #TaylorSwift's show in Dublin," reads a part of their caption alongside the video they shared.

Unlike the concert-goers, whose excitement could be felt through the screen, many people online were not as thrilled by Roberts' appearance, especially regarding her new blonde hair. "That overly blonde hair on Roberts isn't very becoming. She's so beautiful with her natural brunette," expressed an Instagrammer.

Echoing the sentiment, another remarked, "Ugh….. lose the blonde hair🙄." Shocked by how Roberts looked, someone else simply highlighted, "Blonde hair and dark [eyebrows] 😳."

Some observers were so taken aback by Roberts' physical change that they noted how they couldn't recognize her. "Is that Julia Roberts???!" questioned someone on TikTok while another chimed, "I don't think it looks like her at all!"

Other eagle-eyed users were up in arms for an entirely different reason that had nothing to do with Roberts' hair and everything to do with her disposition toward Swift's boyfriend, Travis Kelce.

At some point during the concert, the "Notting Hill" actress was seen conversing with Kelce, and she gave him a big hug that lasted for some time before the two pulled back from each other.

While Kelce let his hands fall back to his sides after the hug, Julia Roberts left her right hand lingering on his shoulder. She also scratched his chest with both of her hands during their discussion.

That exchange prompted a wave of comments from people who noted the encounter as strange. "Her 'interaction' with Travis was 'different,'" a social media user wrote. Another commented, "Yes, he seems a little uncomfortable. Why would she scratch his chest like that? Just a little weird."

However, some people praised Roberts amid the backlash about her appearance and interaction with Kelce. "She looks unreal 🔥😍," gushed a fan while another swooned, "Still beautiful 🤩."

Although Roberts' noteworthy appearance at Taylor Swift's Dublin show is currently the talk of the town, it is not the only moment from The Eras Tour that has gone viral.

Not too long ago Kelce caused a commotion online with his on-stage appearance at his beloved's Eras Tour show in the United Kingdom.

On June 23, Kelce surprisedly appeared on stage, and the crowd went wild. Swift and Kelce set the stage ablaze with the swoon-worthy skit they performed during her third Eras Tour show at Wembley Stadium in London.

Taking a break from cheering his beloved girlfriend on from the VIP tents, Kelce decided to make Swift's performance extra special.

Looking quite dapper in a top hat and a high-end black and white suit, Kelce swept Swift off her feet, literally. The duo and two other male performers acted out a transition scene for Swift's "I Can Do It With a Broken Heart," where they helped her with an outfit change.

Several videos shared on online platforms show how Kelce carried a tuckered-out Swift to a lengthy red couch that was placed in the center of the stage. After setting her down, Swift acted like she was too tired to get up, and thus, the gentlemen helped her up.

A comedic back-and-forth showing them propping Swift up and her falling right back down on the couch ensued while Kelce fanned her face. The final time they lifted the singer, she opened her eyes and acted puzzled as to where she was, looking around the stadium before turning to Kelce who playfully touched up her makeup with a blush brush.

Following that exchange, Swift then playfully acted as though she was reluctant to get ready for the next song. She rolled her eyes and cocked her head to one side while slipping off the white dress she was wearing for the song prior, which prompted Kelce to fan himself.

She stepped out of the dress to reveal the white bra top and matching shorts she had on underneath. Finishing off her new ensemble, the "Shake it Off" talent paired her outfit with the same white heel boots and black gloves she already had on, and the dancers covered her shoulders with a long white suit jacket with black sparkly detailing on each side.

Still feigning like she didn't want to perform, Swift exasperatedly threw up her hands as Kelce tried to encourage her by showing her what she needed to do—dance and put on a show.

He added some finishing touches to her makeup right before one of the dancers placed a mic in front of her and all three of them (the dancers, including Kelce) sent her off on her way. Adding to the show business feel of the skit, some classic jazz music was playing in the background.

Taking to her own Instagram page, Swift shared a carousel of pictures from different moments of her performances at Wembley Stadium. Photos ranged from the iconic skit with Kelce to her belting out chords with fellow singers and friends, Hayley Williams and Gracie Abrams.

Penning a lengthy caption filled with awe and gratitude, Swift did her best to sum up how she felt about her whirlwind performance round at Wembley. "Wembley Stadium round one was so surreal. Looking out into the crowds of 90,000 fans each night and hearing that VOLUME," she began.

Continuing on, Swift wrote, "Those were some of the loudest crowds I've ever heard [...] I got to sing 'Castles Crumbling' with @yelyahwilliams for the first time [...] my heart was just so full of love for her and our friendship. Then the impossibly gifted and wonderful @gracieabrams came and surprised the crowd with the first performance of our song 'us.'"

Spotlighting her beau, Kelce, Swift also mentioned, "And I'm still cracking up/swooning over @killatrav's Eras Tour debut 🥰 Never going to forget these shows." The official Instagram page of the NFL also shared a post of the performance, captioning, "@killatrav was made for the stage 👏."

From the ear-piercing cheers emanating from the joyous hoards of fans at Wembley Stadium, it was no wonder that Swift and Kelce received just as much, if not more, praise online. "i literally cried every time i saw the travis & taylor performance 😭​​​​😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 so happy," gushed a fan.

Posting their comment alongside a sweet picture of Kelce beaming as he lovingly looked at Swift strut down the stage, another admirer penned, "Stay with whoever looks at you like Travis Kelce looks at Taylor Swift #TaylorSwift."

People were so enchanted by Swift and Kelce's skit that murmurs of engagement started to surface. "Only an engagement can top this now. ✨," expressed a fan.

Conversely, another stated, "Honestly Taylor Swift could drop an engagement announcement right now and I'm not sure it would cause as much shock across the internet as her having Travis on stage for #LONDONTSTHEERASTOUR." Amid the praise, however, there was one critic who said, "She's just using him!"

Joining the many people who posted and reposted clips from the famous performance, Kelce's mom reportedly reposted a video of her son on Facebook. Adding extra flare to the show, a media outlet reported that Swift seemingly clapped back at Foo Fighters frontman, David Grohl, for his comment about her.

He had insinuated that the "Blank Space" artist doesn't perform live and in response, Swift made it a point to give her band a shoutout during the show. She clarified that they play "live for three and a half hours," a retaliation Swifties called classy.

Riding on a high following her show, Swift and Travis Kelce celebrated their triumphant performance with a London date night. Photos showed the pair leaving the venue hand-in-hand, twinning in crochet ensembles.
