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:
The story about his mom squeezing his hand 3 times to say "I love you" when he was a kid, and then him squeezing her hand in the hospital - he hadn't told any of us that story... More on that in a second.— Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) 14 de noviembre de 2017
First, a quick word about Taylor Swift. She was not scheduled to do our show today. But we wanted something special for this first show back, so we asked her on a complete whim, since she had been in town doing SNL. She said yes with zero hesitation.— Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) 14 de noviembre de 2017
She sang "New Year's Day." No one had heard it. Suddenly she sings the line, "Squeeze my hand 3 times in the back of the taxi." I nearly gasped. Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing.— Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) 14 de noviembre de 2017
I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue. We all lost it. It was a beautiful coincidence in a beautiful performance. "Hold on to your memories, they will hold on to you," Taylor sang.— Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) 14 de noviembre de 2017
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!
