Jimmy Fallon CRIES During Taylor Swift’s “New Years Day” Performance



More Celebrity News ►►

You might know that Jimmy Fallon canceled all of last week’s tapings following the death of his mother, Gloria and returned Monday night, still visibly shaken from his loss. Holding back tears, Fallon at one point recounted a childhood memory of his mom squeezing his hand three times to say “I love you.”
Tonight producer, mike dicenzo said on twitter, that QUOTE Taylor was not scheduled to do our show today, but we wanted something special for the 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.” Taylor told the show, she would sing New Year’s Day – and it was even more perfect and beautiful that you would expect.
Yes, you heard that right – the lyrics of the song actually describe the story Jimmy told about his mother.
And Taylor didn’t change the lyrics for this performance, that’s what the song is. The Roots’ drummer Questlove tweeted yesterday evening QUOTE I’m just realizing Taylor didn’t readjust the song’s lyrics for tonight’s performance. But the narrative literally applies to the words Jimmy spoke of his mother. Wow. You can’t plan these things @taylorswift13 @FallonTonight
That kind of serendipity sends shivers down my spine. I’m so glad Jimmy’s mother was present even in Taylor’s unscheduled musical performance. Nobody knew ahead of time what the song would be, as the producer tweeted QUOTE; 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.
Jimmy, of course, was also profoundly affected by Taylor’s song, the producer tweeted.
“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,”
What an incredibly profound and touching moment. As the producer said as well, Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something beautiful for Jimmy and our show and we’re forever grateful. And we, at Clevver, are grateful that Jimmy got to pay tribute to his mother in such a meaningful way. How incredible is this? Let us know all of your thoughts in the comment section below.

  1. My grannie use to do the same thing to me; this song is beautiful and I'm Glad the words gave Jimmy what he needed to honor and remember his mother.

  2. A lot of people say a man losing his mother is the deepest pain a man can expect to feel in his life, cause the other option is the only thing worse.. The kids going first. I feel for him, hope he makes it through without the bottle.

  3. I've always thought Jimmy Fallon was such a nice guy and it was so incredible for Taylor to sing this for him ❤ I love her so much

  4. At the end of the song Jimmy gave Taylor a big hug after which he held up her album to plug it. If you watch the video Taylor seems surprised and moves to push it back down as if to say "that's not why I'm here". Anyone who thinks she did all this just for publicity should think again
