Taylor Swift Sings "New Year's Day" On And For Jimmy Fallon: Too Emotional

Taylor Swift was the musical guest last night on NBC's "The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon" where she performed a live and acoustic rendition of her "Reputation" song "New Year's Day". Last night saw the return of Jimmy Fallon to "The Tonight Show" after the passing away of her mother at the age 68 last week. Jimmy spoke an emotional tribute to the woman that he loved the most last night. But we must tell you that Taylor's performance wasn't scheduled. It was a surprise. The Tonight Show's team thought Jimmy's return needed of a special musical guest, so they asked Taylor, since she was still in New York City from performing on "Saturday night Live" over the weekend, and Taylor, knowing how special the situation was going to be for Jimmy, quickly said yes.

An insider confirmed:

Taylor's "New Year's Day" performance was too beautiful and moving. No wonder why everyone in the studio were left sobbing.

We want to send Jimmy Fallon a big hug from the Direct Lyrics team!
