Taylor Swift has made the rounds on numerous late-night talk shows during her career, but her bond with Jimmy Fallon appears to stand out among the rest. The depth of their connection became evident when Swift rushed to The Tonight Show at the eleventh hour upon Fallon’s team’s request. She belted out a touching tribute song dedicated to Jimmy’s departed mother, showcasing a unique closeness between the two.

The tables turned on The Tonight Show as Swift was notably absent this time around. Recently, Time Magazine named the singer as the inaugural entertainer to be honored as Person of the Year. This groundbreaking accolade did not just elicit reactions from Greta Gerwig but also caught the attention of Fallon. He, in his trademark humorous style, quipped on Swift’s behalf, “Of all the honors I’ve had today, this is definitely in the top 50”.
