Taylor Swift performed “New Year’s Day” on Monday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Watch the video below!

Sitting at a piano, Swift sang the sweet ballad about a couple in love after New Year’s eve. She has never performed “New Year’s Day” on live television until tonight. She instead opted to sing “New Year’s Day” for a pre-taped performance that was broadcast during last week’s “Scandal.” For that recording, 100 fans of the singer were invited to her home in Rhode Island, where she played them the entire Reputation album and discussed how each single came about. To date, the video of her singing “New Year’s Day” at home has been viewed more than 2.2 million times.

More recently, Swift sang “Call It What You Want” on “SNL.” She also performed “Ready For It? on “Saturday Night Live.” As noted then, her appearance on the sketch comedy show marked the first time Swift had performed any of her new music live on television.

But fans can look forward to seeing those songs and more live with Swift’s upcoming tour. Earlier on Monday, she officially announced the “Reputation Stadium Tour,” which will kick off in May in Arizona. The North American leg has the songstress on the road through next October. Tickets will go on sale on December 13, which just so happens to be Swift’s birthday. The tour announcement noted that additional dates will be revealed for the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

It actually wasn’t known Swift would be on “The Tonight Show” this evening until Fallon posted an Instagram video, in which he said, “Guys, we have an all-new show tonight and I wanted to make sure we have a very, very special, big musical performance. And we got one. Look what you made me do.” The episode marks the host’s return following a week of bereavement leave to mourn his mother’s passing. Check out the video below of Swift performing “New Year’s Day” on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
