It’s a good day for good people doing good things.
The Monday night performance was a pivotal one, considering it was the first episode Fallon hosted since his mother Gloria’s sudden death on November 5.
In a series of tweets shared by writer and producer for The Tonight Show, Mike DiCenzo said that although Swift wasn’t scheduled to perform, when asked she did so “with zero hesitation.”
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.
