Taylor Swift to Appear on NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”

In a Thursday appearance on BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge,” Imagine Dragons delivered a performance that merged Taylor Swift’s blockbuster “Blank Space” with Ben E. King’s classic “Stand By Me.”

Next Tuesday, Swift will get to personally tell the band how she felt about the performance.

Per an announcement from NBC, Taylor Swift was confirmed as the lead interview guest for the February 17 edition of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Imagine Dragons will be the evening’s musical guest.

John Oliver is also confirmed for the episode.

The visit will represent Swift’s second appearance as an interview guest on the Fallon-hosted “Tonight.” Swift previously appeared last summer in advance of the “1989” album announcement; her visit produced a well-received “Ew!” segment (see above).

She is due to appear on NBC’s “SNL 40” special two days before the “Tonight Show” visit.
