Quotes about Fallon[edit]

  • When I got asked to sing "Silent Night" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon just before Christmas, I saw it as an honor and an opportunity. I loved that show, so being a guest on it was awesome. It was also the first time since way back in the beginning that I just sung without all the choreography. I'm always dancing or running around. But this time, it wasn't about the spectacle. It was all about my voice. And that sing is no joke, either. It felt like I was being recognized as a real singer. And that's really important to me. Music is my life, and in order to build a meaningful career, making the best-quality music I can is my priority.
  • This week, NBC told us five years in advance that Conan O'Brien will take over for Jay Leno, but the network still hasn't said who'll take over for Jimmy Fallon this weekend.
