Jimmy Fallon Returns to 'Tonight Show' With Tearful Tribute to Late Mother

Jimmy Fallon Returns to 'Tonight Show' With Tearful Tribute to Late Mother

Jimmy Fallon paid tribute to his late mother on Monday night's episode of "The Tonight Show", the first new episode to air since she died on November 4.

Fallon then shared a handsome memory of going grocery shopping with his mother, and a special "I Love You" signal they shared right up until the very end of her life. Seated at a piano, Swift demanded attention with the introspective and emotional tune.

Jimmy Fallon returned to the "Tonight Show" on Monday after taking a week off to mourn the death of his mother, Gloria Fallon.

A choked-up Fallon, himself, delivered an on-air memorial to his mother, remembering the glorious life of Gloria.

Fallon ended the monologue by squeezing his hand in the air three times and saying, "I love you".

Mike DiCenzo, a producer and writer on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon", explained on Twitter that they asked Swift to perform "on a complete whim" since she was in town from doing "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend and "she said yes with zero hesitation".

"She also stole everything!" said Daly with a laugh.

"She was not scheduled to do our show today".

"When we were little, my mom would walk us to the store, me and my sister, and we would hold hands, you know".

"Mom, I will never stop trying to make you laugh", Fallon concluded.

Monday evening was made more special for Fallon as Taylor Swift took the stage.

"She wasn't allowed to leave her stoop in Brooklyn", the former "Saturday Night Live" star once told NY magazine. "I think everyone in the audience started sobbing". Thank you for watching, thank you for helping me and my family recover from this loss. He was clearly emotional when sharing the story and talking about what his mother meant to him.
