Caleb Hyles : I'm sorry, the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now. She's on hiatus until LP #7 ♥

Benedict Tam : And this is the true Taylor in "reputation"... I'm crying...

Brekhna Nawaz : Taylor's mum had cancer too, she could relate to Jimmy' s pain on some level. The hug depicted raw emotions & understanding between the two.

A Passer By Named Jacky : Beautiful song. Beautiful tribute to Jimmy's mother. Hit me right in the feels. Some of the comments though, my daughter is Taylor Swift fan but I know very little about her personal life, nor do I care. She's a human like the rest of us. She's certainly not perfect and doubt she ever claims to be. She is a hugely talented songwriter and musician though and fair play to her for realising her dreams when half you negative commenters haven't got a little fingers worth of her talent. The world is such a sick hateful place now. People can't even recognise heartfelt music and emotion.. And I'll just leave it at that.

Mark Riddle : January 1, 2018 anyone?

24fan4life : The fact that the squeezing the hand 3 times was already a lyric in Taylor's song and that Jimmy had never told anyone that story about him and his mom doing that when he was a kid and when he was in the hospital with her and that Taylor without hesitation said yes when asked to perform at the show despite having a full schedule with SNL and played this song instead of any other song on her album was more than a coincidence. It was his mom's way of telling him that she loved him too and she'll always be with him as long as he holds on to the memories. Now excuse me while I go find whoever it is that's cutting onions in my house...

Bella Curcio : haha when she was jumpscared by her record at the end

Matheus Capello : Ive never felt prouder watching her performance. Shes grown into such an outstanding woman. Swiftie for life!

Moonlight Issac : It’s sounds like her song Ronan😭❤️

Marise Bazieh : "I'll never break the hug first, because you don't know how much somebody really needs it." -Taylor Swift That's why I'm a swiftie you guys..I really don't know how some people can hate on her.. she's a true angel with a heart of gold. Bless you Tay ❤

Bethany x : this sounds the EXACT same as the recorded version. this is why i love taylor so much - so so talented 💜💜💜

youmongrel : "Squeeze my hand 3 times in the back of the taxi..." Jimmy had just talked about his mother dying that weekend, unresponsive to him squeezing her hand three times for "I-LOVE-YOU" as they've done since he was a child. Serendipitous that's really part of her original song!

Sonia Chen : *i love this so much!*

Flute Cafe Music : *Covered* :0)

Curosidades YT : Love it ❤️️

Edwin Reynoso : YesssssTaylor 😍

Bilal Humayun : Old taylor is still alive :') #OldTaylorLives

Curosidades YT : Love it ❤️️

biszumende : "Squeeze my hands 3 times in the back of the taxi" Wow. I thought she adjusted the lyrics, but that's how they've always been. what a beautiful coincidence.

GirlBehindRedDoor23 : One thing that I’ve noticed is how at the end of the video, Jimmy is like trying to show her album and she is like “oh”.. in a way like “I didn’t came to perform for this”. All the love to Jimmy and his family.

Siamul Islam : [Verse 1] There's glitter on the floor after the party Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor You and me from the night before, but [Chorus] Don’t read the last page But I stay when you're lost, and I'm scared And you’re turning away I want your midnights But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day [Verse 2] You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi I can tell that it's gonna be a long road I'll be there if you're the toast of the town, babe Or if you strike out and you're crawling home [Chorus] Don't read the last page But I stay when it’s hard, or it’s wrong Or we're making mistakes I want your midnights But I’ll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day [Post-Chorus] Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you And I will hold on to you [Bridge] Please don't ever become a stranger Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere Please don't ever become a stranger Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere [Verse 3] There’s glitter on the floor after the party Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor You and me forevermore [Chorus] Don't read the last page But I stay when it's hard, or it's wrong Or we're making mistakes I want your midnights But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year's Day [Post-Chorus] Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you And I will hold on to you [Outro] Please don't ever become a stranger (To the memories, they will hold on to you) Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere (Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you) Please don't ever become a stranger (Hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you) Whose laugh I could recognize anywhere (I will hold on to you)

akhilesh kumar patel : My favourite part is 'please don't ever become a stranger......' 👍👌

Heather Griffin : Whoa, she said "squeezed my hand 3 times in the back of the taxi" - she did that on the fly for Jimmy's Mom for sure. That's how a songwriter does it...she's wonderful.

Sania Soodmand : Who can not love Taylor ? She's the best singer ever , I love her more than everything

Josefine Öijer : Jimmy fallons voice in the morning, sure will get you awake! :D

Sassybabexox Xoxo : Hate her or love her she did something Beautiful💜

Angieleigh Eads : I thought Call It What You Want was my favorite off of Reputation until I heard New Year's Day the night my CD arrived. This performance on short notice for Jimmy (because his team asked her if she would before she left) cemented for me that she is one of the most selfless artists on the planet (in my opinion). People can say what they want about her, and maybe some of it is true, but she is a rare gem (again, my opinion).

Mackenzie Jean : I don't care if you don't like taylor swift. She's an angel for this and she deserves so much more

SAUMIK SHASHWAT : That's why I'm a proud Swiftie.

Yelu C. : Wow!! Right in the feels!!! 😍

Jeen Grey : This is one of the reasons why I never left Taylor Swift <3. I don't care if she switched genre's or what, I care about the messages of her songs. She makes them so relatable and unforgettable.. I will always love you tswizzle <3 <3 <3

Melvin Anith : Squeezed my hand three times!

Tyderious Favors : This is why I'm a die hard swiftie and not ashamed to mention it in public places

taylor swift is bae : like this comment, if you stan for Taylors happiness

Doug Sousa : That hug was so sincere! I thought they were gonna cry!

Kim Andrew Tungol : Who's actually watching this on New Year's Day?

Lairyll Lue : More songs on the piano please Taylor! You sound amazing and you playing the piano is bomb!

Sophie Lisa : is no one going to talk about the fact that she sounds here exactly like on the studio version of New Years Day???

Flavi Show YT : I love this song :)

TwoPiece : This is going to hit the floor of the night👍💞

Sarah Eckerson : I now get chills everytime she says "squeeze my hand three times in the back of a taxi" because of the relation it has to Jimmy and his mom and the fact that Taylor performed this song at Jimmy's first show back. And the GENUINE hug they had at the end says everything. <3

Wan Navarrete : She's so amazingggg!!! We love you Taylor!!❤#SwiftiesForever

Ricael Teixeira : Who's here on new year's day? o/

Fren160 : The sweetest, most genuine moment I've ever seen on television.
