"She was the best audience, she was the one I was always trying to make laugh", Fallon said.

Fallon then became emotional while sharing an anecdote about his mother and the way she expressed her love for Fallon and his sister, also named Gloria.

Recalling her final moments he added: "Last week I was in the hospital and I squeezed her hand and said 'I love you, ' but sadly he did not get any response from her."I just knew we were in trouble", Jimmy told the audience".

Tay Tay performed her breathtaking new ballad "New Year's Day" off her new album Reputation, after Jimmy Fallon offered a tearful tribute to his late mother.

Thank you to Taylor, the Roots, [Steve Higgins], our whole staff and crew, and to all the FalPals, fans, and everyone who reached out to and supported Jimmy and his family.

Fallon, who's normally the most cheerful man in late night, almost broke down in tears as he recounted his mom holding his hand when he was a kid, and how she did the same when she was in the hospital.

"Mom, I'll never stop trying to make you laugh, I love you", he ended. "Jimmy was at his mother's bedside, along with her loved ones, when she passed away at NYU Langone Medical Center in NYC".
