Taylor Swift wowed her fans on Saturday (13 November) with a live performance of the new, 10-minute version of her song “All Too Well”.
Swift was featured as the episode’s musical guest, while Lovecraft Country and Loki star Jonathan Majors took on hosting duties.
The episode aired the day after Swift unveiled Red (Taylor’s Version), the re-recorded version of her 2012 album Red.
The new album includes a 10-minute version of the hit single “All Too Well”. The song has long been rumoured to be about Swift’s relationship with Jake Gyllenhaal, and the additional lyrics provide more context in that regard.
For her performance as musical guest, Swift played the entire 10-minute version of the song, while the accompanying short film she had previously unveiled on YouTube played on a screen behind her.
