taylor swift new year's day live jimmy fallon

  • Taylor Swift performed a live rendition of “New Year’s Day” on NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” Monday night.
  • It’s the best song from her new album, “Reputation.”
  • The lyrics had emotional resonance. She sings “you squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi.”
  • Fallon had just told a story about how his mother used to squeeze his hand to say she loved him.
  • “I nearly gasped,” producer Mike DiCenzo wrote on Twitter. “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.”
  • She performed “…Ready For It?” and “Call It What You Want” on “Saturday Night Live” a few days ago.
  • Watch Swift’s performance of “New Year’s Day” below.
