Watch Now: Taylor Swift Does “Ew!” Sketch, Interview on “Tonight Show”

For the past week, host Jimmy Fallon has promised viewers of his “The Tonight Show” that he and Taylor Swift had something special planned for Wednesday’s broadcast.

As if cryptic teases were required to build excitement around the appearance.

With a new movie (“The Giver”) coming out in two days and a new single set to emerge in five, Taylor Swift represents an unparalleled topic of entertainment conversation. Her appearance could have consisted of a one second handshake with host Jimmy Fallon, and it would have generated a volume of headlines atypical for NBC’s “Tonight Show.”

The appearance consists of more than a one second handshake.

Spoiled by Swift and NBC, the singer-songwriter’s “Tonight Show” visit includes participation in the show’s “Ew!” segment. To match wits with host Jimmy Fallon’s “Sara,” Taylor Swift performs from within the nerdy confines of alter ego “Natalie.”

Swift also sits down–as her true self–for an interview with Fallon.

Photos from Wednesday’s taping, including those of Swift’s two segments, Andrew Rannells’ interview and Ryan Adams’ musical performance, follow. Videos from Taylor Swift’s “Tonight Show” appearance, including her “Ew!” segment and selections from her interview, are also below:
