Madilyn Schroeder : that hug was pure emotion between taylor and jimmy, this is beautiful

Devin Sumer : this is heartbreakingly beautiful

Fahmi Hoque : who feels cozy and glittery after party of new year's eve while listening to this song?

Ava Meyers : This is one of the best songs on Reputation

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

Irène & Rosalie : ""You squeeze my hand three times in the of the taxi"" my heart so melted respect with Jimmy 💝💞💟💗💖💕💔💓❤💜💚💛💙

cesar martinez : No matter what kind of album she puts out. She always has those one or two songs that you can tell are still that 18 year old girl writing in her room with just a guitar, pencil, and paper before she became a super huge pop sensation churning out hit songs. I enjoy that Taylor but I also love knowing this taylor is still there somewhere.

Jordan Pearson : "please don't ever become a stranger whose laugh I could recognize anywhere" is one of her best lyrics

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 ❤

Geoff P : Bloody hell. What an artist. And she's only, what, 27? I hope I'm still alive when she's doing albums in her 40s.

Slime Clouds : That hug at the end....You can see the sadness in both of their faces. Jimmy because of his mom and Taylor cause she understood...

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

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???

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).

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.

BLAQK ! : Is there anyone in here that loves TAYLOR SWIFT?

247webgirl : Did any other Swifties get very very happy to see Paul still playing guitar for her after all these years? <3

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

Angie P : Thia here is the real Taylor Alison Swift... She's not a mirrored reflection of her reputation.. she is no snake.. she is a strong, caring, determined and beautiful women. Stay strong Jimmy.. stay strong Taylor. 💖

Victoria Holme : Never really liked Taylor. But after this performance and the backstory, she has gained my upmost respect. Wow

Sophia Wilson : Waittt wait waitttt “Squeeze my hand three times” didn’t jimmy Fallon say his mom used to do that and then say I love you!?

Nektaria : This song sounds like a RED era song Im not crying you are

Jonathan Lopez : If there's one thing I hate about this particular Taylor era, is that for Swifties, we know her for gems of songs like this and others on the album, but everyone else only remembers Look What You Made Me Do and ...Ready For It?

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

ElprezBeastFanBoy : I still can’t understand how this has dislikes it makes no sense Love or hate jimmy Taylor it doesn’t matter this is an act of human compassion and pure respect well played Taylor

J C : This performance really meant something to Jimmy. Especially when Taylor said “you squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi” my heart that was beautiful and so was their hug at the end 😭😭🧡

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

Mila Roberts : guys she didn't even plan on coming to the show. she was in nyc doing snl and the producers asked her last minute and she agreed.she's such a great human being

encanta411 : I am not a big Taylor Swift fan, but this gesture she did for Jimmy was incredibly sweet

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)

GoodxJ : This song is so good! Love that silver hoodie she has on too!!! She gives the best hugs. her music warms my heart! wifey.

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

Mark Riddle : January 1, 2018 anyone?

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

Sue Jennifer : I love a lot of her songs, she's so unique and talented

robbie s : My grandmother is currently dying in the hospital. This past week has been insanely rough for our family and today the decision was made to pull the plugs, drop the medicine, and provide a do not resuscitate order. I am not a big Taylor Swift fan, but this song and what she did for Jimmy after his mother passed away... all I can say is that this song is helping get me through this and will forever be a part of my life. Time to listen to this once more before heading out to the hospital for these last moments.

Jaydoes gaming : “Squeeze my hand 3 times in the back of the taxi,I can tell it’s gonna be a long road.”😭😭

Uma Devi : And people say reputation is trash and its songs r immature and her old music was much better This is a complete lie Reputation actually has great lyrics its just that these days people think thats its a trend to hate taylor and follows it but they are blind

Antonis Tsikelas : she hit that A2 like its nothing

Maliha Intikhab : This gives me slight "All too well" vibes and I am in love with it!!!

Winston O'Dell : In addition to Taylor Swift being an American artist with profound musical talent and an icon of the American music industry she is also globally recognized and appreciated for her music. Even the children and young people of China sing her songs!

Isabella Cobio : We can't deny, she's the real taylor... Even if she wants to be rude, she's always sweet as this. This song remembers me Fearless and Speak now's songs. <3

Gretchen Bugnay : Why does Taylor look stress? We got your back darling

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

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

Jay - : Imagine this song being released the exact day, time, and moment you lose someone? It’s sad, but also a little comforting and a really wild coincidence. Or maybe it wasn’t? Who knows. This song is literally the best song Taylor has ever written. Everybody has their own story and personal connection to it, and if you think otherwise of it, get lost.

Aeris Forever-L : Whether you love or hate Taylor Swift, you must admit that she produces amazing music and deserves all the respect and success she has.

Lorena Sofia Vargas Herrera : Wow this performance made me cry... so raw and real I love this ♥️

Ken Rodgers : In a past relationship of mine I made a code that only we knew... I would squeeze my partners hand three times when I was in public in a rhythm that meant "I love you" as I said it in my head. We shared that world and nobody else knew. It was beautiful to me... The lyrics in this song reminded me of that...
