  1. Anyone has the impression this was a setup with shake it off, I mean there's no way he could recognize the song only from the drums, and he said it's worth 10.000 points, so he knew which song was coming, but Taylor didn't even have time to hear some of the chords??

  2. I forgot that SIO existed,and I thought my fans would laughed me and they did it,and it was so nice so peaceful and quiet

  3. Miranda Priestly: pursing of the lips

    Taylor Swift's Goldmember Dress / Used carsalesman 1980's suit explosion: what??????

  4. Taylor: There's a little bit of a lot,
    Jimmy: Why don't you say you need to calm down?
    another one for guests calling out Jimmy Fallon's cheerful disposition

  5. This is probably my most favourite episode of Jimmy's Show. I can tell how great and amusing a person he is. Taylor on the other is really a genius to guess songs with just the intro chords. I know a lot of songs in different times but I've only guessed Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer. How disappointing. 😂

  6. Jimmy you needed to apologize. I’m never gonna watch your show again. the reason she missed that last question is because she was trying to remember the chords to play and the words to play both of other two songs. you didn’t give her a chance to recover. Taylor was emotionally distracted and you knew it. Jerk!

  7. jimmy fallon:billie eilish bad guy

    taylor swift:whats that???

    i think jimmy set up bad guy song to be played by those guys who looks so sad all the time

  8. Taylor: That's a bit of a lot
    Jimmy and everyone on earth: why didn't you say "you need to calm down"

    I love that one 😂♥️
