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. Thank you so much for watching Clevver, I’m Zoe Lillian and I’ll see you next time

awwww look at all the comments...you're all a bunch of retards. once your dead your dead. Commenting "I feel your pain, and Im with you jimmy", he isn't reading this. Your voice goes nowhere but into the youtube abyss.

Stop paying attention to the dumb shit, and pay attention to what really matters.

For those who say that this is a PR stunt. It's impossible to know what the future holds. And you can't always be a critic. There are just some things that cannot be explained.
