Jimmy Fallon made his return to the Tonight Show Monday and opened with a tearful tribute to his mother Gloria Fallon, who died November 4 at the age of 68.

Fallon had canceled last week's tapings after his mother's death and told the Associated Press through his spokeswoman that he lost his "biggest fan".

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.

"The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

On Twitter, Tonight Show producer Mike DiCenzo explained how Swift's appearance came to pass and what the lyrics to "New Year's Day" meant to Fallon.

He had picked 178 wickets in just 35 Test matches which included 10 five-wicket hauls and four 10-wicket hauls in the match. At the time he was banned, he was the No 1 ODI bowler in the world, and in the top ten of both Test and T20 rankings.

During his tribute, Fallon recalled how his mother would squeeze his hand three times to signify "I love you".

"Last week I was in the hospital and I grabbed her and squeezed her and said, 'I love you, '" he continued. "I just knew we were in trouble".

Of the emotional performance, he said, "I almost gasped. Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing", he wrote.

Fallon and Swift shared an emotional hug at the end of the performance, which DiCenzo says was a genuine moment at the end of a meaningful night. I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue.

Taylor Swift gave fans a huge surprise this evening - she performed one of her brand new songs on The Tonight Show! "It was a attractive coincidence in a lovely performance", he wrote. Thank you for watching.
