Watch Jimmy Fallon's Tearful Tribute to His Late Mother Gloria

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

Monday night's new episode of The Tonight Show was the first one for Jimmy Fallon since the death of his mother Gloria. Seated at a piano, Swift demanded attention with the introspective and emotional tune.

The Saturday Night Live alum, 43, resumed his Tonight Show hosting duties on Monday after a week off, explaining that he had cancelled shows to "be with his family and make arrangements".

The Tonight Show producer Mike DiCenzo revealed on Twitter that she was not scheduled to appear but did so in support of Fallon.

We do think that it is especially worth noting that Fallon didn't open the show with the tribute to his mother - instead, he performed a pretty standard monologue for him before sitting down at the desk and choosing that moment to pour out his heart.


Jimmy - whose comeback show also featured a surprise performance from Taylor Swift - said: "Mom, I'll never stop trying to make you laugh".

"Last week I was in the hospital and I grabbed her and squeezed 'I love you.' I just knew we were in trouble, you know?" "I'm telling you, going through her things, it's an example of how much she loved life".

Gloria's advice? "Wash your hands after being near that Paris Hilton", she joked on the show. It was Fallon's first show back since his mother Gloria passed away, and at the beginning, Fallon reflected on his time with her. "Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing", DiCenzo wrote. It was a handsome coincidence in a lovely performance.

Later in the song, Swift sang another line that struck a chord: "Hold on to your memories, they will hold on to you". "Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something lovely for Jimmy and our show today, and we're forever grateful". "May God grant you and your family comfort and may your Mum's soul R.I.P".
