Watch Taylor Swift's Emotional Tonight Show Performance

Last night Taylor Swift made a surprise appearance on the Tonight Show – the first for Jimmy Fallon since the death of his beloved mother Gloria. One of the show’s writers and producers tweeted that “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." The song Taylor chose to perform was “New Year’s Day”, the final song from her new album Reputation: there were several lyrics in the song that made it the perfect tribute to Gloria. It was really emotional and beautiful, and so was Taylor and Jimmy’s hug afterward. Watch the video below, and click here for the entire behind-the-scenes Twitter thread.
