Jimmy Fallon Returns to 'Tonight Show' With Tearful Tribute to Late Mother

Fans had no idea the late night show performance was coming, until host Jimmy Fallon teased an extremely special guest just hours before showtime.

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.

"As some of you know, my mother Gloria passed away recently and I cancelled our shows last week to be with my family and make arrangements". "Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something handsome for Jimmy and our show today, and we're forever grateful", he wrote.

A 7.3-magnitude natural disaster on the Iran-Iraq border leaves hundreds dead
The quake hit Azgeleh, but officials said the highest number of casualties were in Iran's Kermanshah province. The most extensive damage in Iraq occurred in the town of Darbandikhan in the country's Kurdish region.

Fallon then shared a lovely memory of going grocery shopping with his mother, and a special "I Love You" signal they shared right up until the very end of her life. The tearjerker part? The lyrics happen to include: "You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi/I can tell that it's gonna be a long road".

Gloria Fallon died "peacefully" on 4 November in hospital in NY. "She said yes with zero hesitation", he wrote.

Referring to the line in the song about hand-squeezing, he added, "I almost gasped".

Inside Kim Kardashian's cherry blossom-themed baby shower for 3rd child
KYLIE Jenner has given the biggest hint yet that she's expecting a baby girl by choosing pink decorations for her baby shower. Reportedly pregnant Khloe Kardashian also posted about the event, showing off the stunning design of the party in a snap.

Of the emotional performance, he said, "I almost gasped. I think there was like a thing where everyone wanted to be a nun". "'Hold on to your memories, they will hold on to you, ' Taylor sang". She played Reputation album closer "New Year's Day" - the most sombre but also the prettiest song on the record - and it ended with a very emotional hug between the singer and host.

"Last week I was in the hospital, by her side, and I grabbed her hand and I squeezed, "I love you". Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something lovely for Jimmy and our show today, and we're forever grateful". "I can tell you it meant everything to him".

Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott Might Be Engaged!
But the social media butterfly has largely kept mum on her accounts - and so far, she's had nothing to say about her new bling. As her TV series The Life of Kylie showed, the only person who actually knows what's happening inside of it is Kylie .
