Taylor Swift Performs 'New Year's Day' on 'Tonight Show'

Jimmy Fallon returned to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with a heavy heart after the loss of his mother, Gloria Fallon.

"Last week I was in the hospital and I grabbed her hand and squeezed "I love you" and I just knew we were in trouble", he said. "Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something handsome for Jimmy and our show today, and we're forever grateful", said DiCenzo.

Fallon told a story Monday night about how his mother would hold his hand as a kid, and would squeeze three times and tell him that she loved him.

Watch Jimmy Fallon's tribute above.

Gloria Fallon died "peacefully" on 4 November in hospital in NY.

The 27-year-old superstar took to the stage for the a live performance of her song "New Year's Day!" "We are going to continue to work hard to bring life and laughter into the world", he said, adding, as he clenched his fist three times: "Mom, I will never stop trying to make you laugh. I love you", he said.

Swift, who was not scheduled to appear on the show agreed to perform her new track when invited by producers at the last minute.

"She sang 'New Year's Day.' No one had heard it".

A family spokesperson said Fallon and other loved ones were by his mother's bedside when she died on November 4 from an undisclosed illness at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York City. I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue. It was a attractive coincidence in a handsome performance.
