AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift made an unannounced appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday night, November 13. The country-turned-pop superstar surprised the audience as she performed her new song "New Year's Day" off her latest album "Reputation".
Donning a shimmery hoodie, she played the piano to deliver a live performance of the track. She performed a stripped-down version of the song, accompanied by just an acoustic guitar and some backup singers.
Before the show, Jimmy Fallon teased Swift's performance with an Instagram video. "I wanted to make sure we have a very very special, big musical performance and we got one! Look what you made me do...," the host said in the video.
The Monday episode marked Fallon's return to the show following the passing of his mother on November 4. He said in a statement at the time, "Today I lost my biggest fan." NBC canceled the taping of the late-night show scheduled for the week of November 6-10.
Swift recently also promoted her album on NBC's long-running sketch series "Saturday Night Live". She performed "...Ready for It?" and an acoustic rendition of "Call It What You Want" in the November 11 episode which was hosted by Tiffany Haddish.
The 27-year-old star has announced the dates for her 2018 North American tour in support of her newly-released album "Reputation". The tour will kick off March 8 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale and include stops in Chicago, Seattle, Toronto, Kansas City and more.
"Reputation" had sold more that 925,000 units in its first three days. The album is expected to sell over 1.5 million units by the end of the week, marking her largest sales week. Its debut is also expected to surpass her previous career best "1989", which racked up 1.29 million equivalent units in its first week.
Celebrating the success of her album, Swift greeted her fans at a pop-up shop in New York City on Sunday, November 12. "She came with her parents and Todrick Hall. She stayed for so long in the freezing cold to talk and hug everyone waiting and personally thank them for their support. She is an actual angel," one lucky fan told Us Weekly.
