'Jimmy Fallon' Producer Explains the Emotional Reason for Taylor Swift's Unplanned 'New Year's Day' Performance

The meaning behind Taylor Swift‘s unplanned Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon performance was even more emotional than the song itself.

Show writer and producer Mike DiCenzo? told the heartbreaking story of her performance of Reputation track “New Year’s Day” – and the shocking accidental lyrical connection to Jimmy and his mom – in a series of tweets that night.

“First, a quick word about Taylor Swift. 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,” he wrote on Twitter.

“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.”

“That hug between Jimmy and Taylor after the song was 100% real emotion. Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something beautiful for Jimmy and our show today, and we’re forever grateful.”

Taylor Swift Fans Should Watch Jimmy Fallon's Show Tonight!

If you’re a Taylor Swift fan, we’re going to suggest that you tune in to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight (November 13) as he just teased a performance from the singer!

Jimmy will be having his first new show following a week-long hiatus after the death of his mother earlier this month.

“Guys! We have an all-new show tonight and I want to make sure we have a very, very special, big musical performance, and we got one. Look what you made me do,” Jimmy teased in the clip.

Jimmy is obviously referring to Taylor and her song “Look What You Made Me Do.”

Over the weekend, Taylor gave her first televised performances of reputation songs (and totally slayed them) on Saturday Night Live. She didn’t perform “LWYMMD” though, so perhaps she’ll be doing that one for Jimmy‘s show!
