Jimmy Fallon Pays Tribute to Mother Gloria During 'Tonight Show' Return

14 November 2017, 04:37 | Winston Chapman

Jimmy Fallon returned to "The Tonight Show" Monday, a little over a week since his mother Gloria died, and one of his first orders of business was to pay her an emotional tribute.

Immediately following the death of his mother, NBC put out a statement extending its "deepest condolences to Jimmy and all his family at this time of enormous loss".

While holding back tears, Fallon recalled how he and his mother would squeeze each other's hand and say, "I love you".

"The Tonight Show" had canceled its episode November 3, following reports of a family matter.

As if his opening wasn't devastating enough, Taylor Swift was the episode's surprise musical guest, bringing her acoustic new song New Year's Day - with nakedly sad lyrics about love and loss - to the Tonight Show stage. Upon reflection for his mother, he said, "Mom, I'll never stop trying to make you laugh".

"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", DiCenzo tweeted. "She said yes with zero hesitation", he explained.

Of the emotional performance, he said, "I almost gasped".

"As some of you know, my mother Gloria passed away recently and I canceled our shows last week to be with my family and make arrangements. Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing", he wrote.

"I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue", he said. It was a attractive coincidence in a handsome performance. Thank you for watching.
