Taylor Swift has appeared on several late night talk shows throughout her career. However, it seems like her relationship with Jimmy Fallon might be a little stronger compared to the other late night hosts. That was well-documented when Taylor Swift showed up at the last second after a request from Fallon’s team, singing a tribute song to Jimmy’s late mother.
The Tonight Show producer Mike DiCenzo detailed the emotional moment between the two.
“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,” DiCenzo wrote.
“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. 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.”
DiCrenzo went on to reveal that the hug between the two was a 100% genuine heartfelt moment. It seems like the two had quite the extremes during interviews, including a light-hearted moment that Swift did not expect.
